Costain has launched a climate action plan to deliver low carbon solutions, including combatting ‘Scope 3’ emissions, to every client by 2023 and to be net-zero by 2035
Working collaboratively with government, clients, partners and its supply chain, Costain has revealed that by 2023, every option delivered for clients will propose at least one low carbon solution, with whole life cycle zero carbon emission solutions being delivered by 2035.
The plan also highlights how Costain will play a key role in the development and delivery of both carbon capture and clean and renewable energy generation to reduce carbon footprints across every sector.
Costain has published how it will reduce plant emissions, incorporate low or zero-carbon materials, switch all of its energy connections to carbon-neutral energy tariffs and overhaul its vehicle fleet to ‘ultra-low’ emission vehicles as elements of the commitment to reduce its total solution footprint to net-zero by 2035.
Journey to clean growth
The company is already on its journey to be a clean growth leader, working with government, regulators and clients to enable the uptake of low carbon solutions such as carbon capture and hydrogen as well as connected and autonomous vehicles.
Costain is also supporting its people to help change their behaviours, with sites and offices recently taking an entire day to recognise how they can reduce their carbon footprint both at home and at work.
Alex Vaughan, CEO said: “Eliminating carbon emissions is fundamental to ensure we help shape UK infrastructure to mitigate and adapt to the global challenge of climate change.
“We are developing and offering our clients low carbon, whole-life solutions to ensure that we make a positive difference over the next decade.”
