Sir Robert McAlpine goes for net zero carbon by 2025

Major builder and civil engineering firm Sir Robert McAlpine has committed to achieving net zero carbon emissions within a remarkable five years, in its new sustainability strategy for 2020-2024.

The company’s sustainability strategy will focus on four key areas:

  • Becoming net zero carbon: where the Carbon Trust will third-party validate carbon reduction claims en route to 2025 and beyond;
  • Resource efficiency: including application of circular economy principles for projects, along with modern methods of construction (modularisation, offsite construction);
  • Ethical procurement: including responsible sourcing of building materials, to minimise environmental impact; and 
  • Social value: including partnership with the Social Profit Calculator to set targets, forecast, monitor and improve social value delivered by projects.
