Net Zero Commitment and wider Sustainability Goals
In Kebbell Homes recognition of the importance of making a full and lasting commitment to reducing the greenhouse gas emissions from our activities, in support of the wider commitment of the world to limit global temperature increases and the impact on the planet of climate change, we have completed our carbon audit of scope 1, 2 and 3 emissions for 2022 and are now implementing our Carbon Reduction Plan. (link to it here?)
We are committed to achieving Net Zero in line with the science-based targets set out by the UNFCCC i.e., to achieve Net Zero no later than 2050 and target a 50% reduction in emissions by 2030. We are pleased to have made a start on the road to playing its part in reaching Net Zero by 2050 by embarking on an audit of its scope 1, 2 and 3 emissions. This has involved setting up a cross-department task force. From this position of evidence, the intention is to review and consider where the biggest reductions can be made.
The company’s support of a director undertaking an MSc in Sustainable Urban Development reflects its commitment to taking its obligations and opportunities for positive change seriously. It also is a good indicator of the company’s culture whereby actions are taken based on fact, research, evidence and only after much consideration. Having said this, the company is mindful to remain commercially competitive and it is against this backdrop of viability that decisions will be taken only when they are reasonable and consummate with the benefits.
The company’s ethos and culture are geared to ensuring we are educated about, and engaged with, what sustainability really means and what actions are being taken to reduce not only our impact on CO2e and other greenhouse gas emissions but where other sustainable goals (as defined by the UN’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals) may be positively impacted.
