The built environment is directly responsible for 25% of UK emissions, lifting to 42% if you include surface transport. Developers and construction companies are choosing to deliver projects that are in-line with global targets, to assist with the ambition of reaching 100% net-zero emissions buildings by 2050. Any development can have a significant impact on the environment, communities, and the people that it serves.
Planet Mark has been working with Prologis for over 10 years to help them reduce whole life carbon in their developments. There has been an average reduction of over 25% across 70 developments, with reductions in both embodied and operational carbon. They have worked with Prologis’ supply chain to ensure all contractors are aware of their influence on reducing carbon. Many of these contractors are now members of Planet Mark, resulting in common values and the same goals across the supply chain. Planet Mark has also engaged with over 70 schools and colleges, delivering sustainability workshops to educate younger members of these communities and giving them the knowledge needed to make an impact in the future.
