During 2020, the pandemic had a positive impact on carbon reductions, with emissions reduced by 45% compared with 2015.
BAM’s longer-term target in 2015 was to go on to reduce emissions by 50% by 2030. This has now been replaced by a commitment to be net zero by then or before.
BAM is one of the few signatories in the construction industry to the World Green Building Council’s Net Zero Carbon Buildings Commitment. The company has agreed to be independently audited on progress, publicly reporting on performance, and actively influence its clients and wider stakeholders to also achieve net zero.
