The United Kingdom-based family business operates in the demolition and construction sectors as well as waste, and has already invested in sustainable buildings and state-of-the-art processing facilities and equipment to ensure 100% of waste processed is reused, recycled and ultimately diverted from landfill.

As part of this announcement, it said a launch and manifesto will be released in the coming months detailing its road map for change.

“Climate change is a major problem that is being highlighted daily by scientists from all around the world,” said managing director Jacqueline O’Donovan.

“It is vital that everyone must take on their share of the responsibility and that includes business leaders in particular, in order to tackle the real challenges we face.

“We need to focus on achievable goals that are practical and that work, taking innovative, hard-hitting action to become more resourceful and rise to the climate challenge, making a lasting difference.”

For a business to have a net zero carbon footprint, it would have to achieve net zero carbon dioxide emissions by balancing carbon emissions with carbon removal – often through carbon offsetting – or simply eliminating carbon emissions altogether.
