it is a set of criteria used to evaluate the sustainability and societal impact of a company or organization.
Environmental criteria include a company’s impact on the environment, such as its carbon footprint and waste management practices.
Social criteria include a company’s treatment of its employees, customers, and the communities it operates in.
Governance criteria include a company’s leadership and management structure, as well as its transparency and ethical practices.
ESG investing involves selecting investments based on these criteria, with the goal of promoting sustainability and responsible corporate behaviour.
is a measure of the total greenhouse gas emissions caused by an individual, organization, or product over a certain period of time. It is typically measured in units of carbon dioxide equivalents (CO2e) and includes emissions from sources such as electricity consumption, transportation, and heating and cooling.
The carbon footprint of a building is primarily determined by its energy consumption, which is used for heating, cooling, lighting, and powering appliances and equipment. The energy used in the building’s construction, maintenance, and demolition also contribute to the carbon footprint.
is the process of reducing or eliminating greenhouse gas emissions in order to mitigate the effects of climate change.
There are a variety of strategies that can be used to decarbonize the built environment, including: energy efficiency, renewable energy, net zero energy, low-carbon materials, sustainable transportation, carbon capture and storage, green roofs and walls.
Overall, decarbonization strategies aim to decrease the built environment’s carbon footprint and reduce the impact of climate change.
is a way for an individual, organization, or business to offset the emissions that they are responsible for by funding projects that reduce or remove carbon emissions elsewhere. The idea behind carbon offsetting is that the carbon emissions from one source can be balanced out by reducing emissions from another source. This can be done by investing in renewable energy projects, such as wind or solar power, or by funding projects that increase energy efficiency or capture carbon from the atmosphere.
The goal of carbon offsetting is to reduce the overall amount of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere. However, it is important to note that carbon offsetting is not a substitute for reducing emissions at their source and it should not be used as a way to avoid taking action to reduce emissions.
We have a wealth of experience working as main building contractors on all kinds of projects, big and small, from home maintenance and improvements to extensions, refurbishments and new builds.
