BAM Construct UK has today published its carbon reduction plan.

Reducing carbon emissions is at the heart of our business and sustainability strategy, and we are committed to achieving net zero carbon emissions in our direct operations before 2030.

As part of our strategy “Creating a Sustainable Tomorrow” we have developed a range of new commitments to cut our own and our clients’ carbon emissions well ahead of the UK’s 2050 net zero target. Our carbon reduction plan 2021 outlines our approach and roadmap to net zero. It also provides a selection of examples of how we’re helping our clients to reduce the emissions of their buildings.

In 2020, we achieved a 49% reduction in absolute CO2e emissions from 2015 to 2020 and a 44% reduction in normalised emissions (surpassing our target of 25% reduction). 

Lincoln Medical School, University of Lincoln - a standout project that intends to achieve net zero
Since 2008 when we began measuring and managing emissions, our absolute scope 1, 2 and 3 emissions have reduced by 75% and normalised emissions by 66%, taking 22,335 tCO2e out of our business and our clients’ projects.

This provides a strong basis to achieving net zero carbon associated with indirect emissions – in what we build – by 2035, focusing on embodied and operational carbon of buildings delivered for clients across the public and private sectors.

The carbon reduction plan will be updated at least annually, communicating progress against our targets.

For the third consecutive year, Royal BAM Group nv has been commended for its climate action, achieving a place on CDP's prestigious ‘A List’ for climate change.
