Mace to hit net zero carbon target this year
Mace will achieve its net zero carbon emissions target this year, it has announced.
The net zero carbon objective builds on Mace signing up to the RE100 commitment in 2017 – a global initiative to encourage organisations to use 100% renewable energy.
The company said it would accelerate the adoption of solutions to reduce carbon emissions, as well as supporting its clients, partners and supply chain to embrace and implement low carbon solutions associated with construction and infrastructure projects.
Under its ‘Steps without footprints’ strategy, Mace will work to ‘Reduce, Transform, Investigate and Influence’ to achieve net zero carbon emissions in construction and built environment.
It will explore different approaches to tackle the challenges of energy use, embodied carbon, including the decarbonisation of heating and cooling systems, business travel and water and waste.
Mark Reynolds, group CEO at Mace, said: “Our ambition to achieve net zero carbon in 2020 is Mace’s strongest commitment yet to working sustainably and protecting our environment. Over the last eight years we have invested heavily in reducing our impact on the planet and we are now ready to take this ambitious step and lead our industry to take bold action.
“It is imperative the construction industry works collaboratively and embraces new technology to implement low carbon solutions to transform the way we create, operate and repurpose the built environment.”
