One Planet Pledge
As a business, we continually review how we can improve our environmental and sustainability targets. This month, we have taken this one step further and committed to the ‘One Planet Pledge’.
As part of this pledge, we will strive to make our carbon emissions net zero by 2040, ‘Net zero’ refers to achieving an overall balance between emissions produced by the business and emissions taken out of the atmosphere.
We’re the first, and currently only, contractor to have signed up, having also committed to its sister campaign the Social Mobility Pledge earlier this year, both of which are chaired by Rt Hon Justine Greening.
Mark Doyle, CEO for Jarvis Contracting said “As we’re currently reviewing our processes for our ISO14001 Accreditation and understanding how we can become a more sustainable business, committing to this pledge was a natural next step. We hope that our actions encourage others across the industry to review their sustainability procedures and join us in committing to this.”
