Stantec UK commits to a 50% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions by 2030


Stantec announce that its UK Business is to set a goal of a 50% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) by 2030 (from a 2019 business baseline). This means that Stantec have committed to reduce the carbon emissions arising from its operations, including its offices and business travel, by 50% over the next 10 years.

Stantec has made great progress since it began verifying its carbon emissions in 2007, halving its GHG Emissions per person to date in the UK. This new commitment will be in addition to those savings already made.

Cath Schefer, Chief Operating Officer Global said ‘This is a great step forward for Stantec in the UK. This commitment will drive real change in our business and is a fantastic way for us to support UK industry to achieve the Government’s target of Net Zero by 2050. Given the climate emergency the world faces and calls from across the UK for a green recovery after the pandemic, making this commitment is the right thing to do and is consistent with our company purpose and our values. It is really important for our clients, many of whom have made similar commitments, and it allows us to sign up to external pledges, such as the ACE’s Net Zero pledge and to work effectively with institutions such as the ICE on their net zero initiatives.’
