Cundall has received approval from the Science-Based Targets partnership for their greenhouse gas (GHG) emission reduction targets. These targets form part of Cundall’s wider sustainability roadmap, One Planet, One Chance which was launched in September last year.
Science Based Targets (SBT) is a joint initiative by CDP, the UN Global Compact, the World Resources Institute and WWF which aims to help businesses pursue bolder solutions to climate change. Cundall is one of only 200 companies to have an approved science-based target which is deemed to be on a ‘well below 2 degrees’ trajectory.
Under the approved targets, Cundall has committed to reduce their Scope 1 and 2 GHG emissions by 63% percent per full time equivalent by 2025. Scope 1 and 2 concern the energy used to power our offices.
“Our Sustainability Roadmap is very ambitious, so we’ve sought third party validation of our targets from the Science-Based Target Initiative to provide our clients, peers and partners with the assurance that we mean what we say” said Tomas Neeson.
Cundall is combining its award winning Cundall Diploma with this carbon reduction initiative, asking participants of their internal sustainability course to carry out energy audits in each of their offices and identifying ways to reduce the energy intensity.
