R G Carter is committed to achieving Net Zero emissions from a 2020 baseline in our own operations (scope 1 and 2 emissions) by 2035. We will also continue to engage with our value (supply) chain to achieve Net Zero across our scope 3 emissions by 2045.
We aim to do everything we can to operationally reduce our carbon footprint and only offset what cannot be eliminated as a last resort; any offset being credible, high-quality and certified.
Our Carbon Reduction is currently forecasting a rate of reduction greater than a 1.5 degree pathway and we are working hard to ensure our initiatives in place, continue to make positive progress.
planned carbon initiatives
The R G Carter Carbon Reduction Plan has been prepared in collaboration with the Carbon Trust, who as an expert partner, are supporting us in calculating and analysing our operational and value (supply) chain carbon emissions.
Below are the key initiatives which will help us to achieve our Net Zero ambition.
OUR NET ZERO ROAD MAP
Below outlines our Roadmap to achieve Net Zero in our own operations by 2035 and across all scopes by 2045.
Building for the Future
From the large-scale Civic Hubs to small eco-friendly module classrooms, at R G Carter we strive to ensure as many projects as possible are designed and constructed to help reduce the impact on the environment whilst still creating comfortable, visually aesthetic spaces for people to enjoy.
Whether it is achieving high BREEAM scores, incorporating WellBuilding Standards into our designs or achieving Passivhaus certification, we ensure that sustainability is at the heart of everything we do. We are also proud to be one of the largest Passivhaus homebuilders in the UK.
Below are just some of the sustainably-led projects we have been proud to have delivered, as we continue to build for the future.
