Net Zero Carbon
WME’s commitment is to reduce Carbon emissions to 60% by 2030 from 1990 levels; targeting to meet a net zero by 2050.
Carbon reduction is imperative to meet the Paris Agreement targets of 40% reduction by 2030. Various organizations and government bodies have published relevant documents: The Centre for Alternative Technology’s “Zero Carbon Britain by 2030 roadmap”, RIBA’s “2030 Climate Challenge” and the London Energy Transformation Initiative (LETI) are energy policy proposals for legislation. They go beyond the on-site renewable energy targets produced from low and zero-carbon technologies (LZCT), by focusing on minimizing energy in use, transport emissions, waste management, lifestyle, and embodied carbon.
The 2019 Davos Summit conveyed the financial opportunity in green investment, with private and public funds becoming available to support sustainable development. It highlighted the cost of inaction and short-term is far outweighing the cost of meeting these targets.
- WME understands that to meet the requirements of net-zero carbon, the objectives need to be strategic and integrated into the project from its outset, not an afterthought or retrofit.
- WME has the skills, expertise, and experience to develop environmental engineering strategies that establish methodologies for demonstrating successful operational outcomes in use, which when successfully delivered, achieve higher reductions than a ‘promise’ made at planning.
- WME is your Net-Zero Carbon reduction partner.
