Net Carbon Zero
Wynne Construction is committed to removing carbon from all operations and wider business activities consistently each year until we reach a net zero position by 2040.
This target has been set using the Science Based Targets Initiative (SBTi) guidance. This is an ambitious target, however as a contractor on all Welsh construction frameworks, this enables us to collaborate with a large number of stakeholders, including clients and supply chain partners, to initiate short term success, in addition to more strategic longer-term activities. We are aiming to be a thought leader in the space with the local business community and industry sector, so helping the wider industry and community implement best practice to become low carbon.
The first essential step has been to create our decarbonisation plan and strategy to measure our carbon footprint and set a baseline for the 2040 target of Net Zero. We appointed partners Go Green Experts in October 2021 to measure the carbon footprint, including direct and selected indirect emissions, i.e. scope 1, 2 and selected scope 3. Based on this analysis of the existing carbon footprint, future industry, and economy wide forecast trends, as well as our carbon reduction strategy, a target to be Net Zero in relation to carbon emissions (CO2e) by 2040 has been set.
To achieve this we have set out a number of activities to undertake in our carbon reduction plan, split into short term, medium term and long-term activities.
