Amey marked Earth Day by defining its roadmap to achieving carbon net-zero by 2040.

The infrastructure services and engineering company has also committed to achieving Scope 1 and 2 net-zero by 2035 with a minimum of 80 per cent absolute reduction on a 2019 baseline.

To achieve this, Amey will be following four principles: reduce, transition, innovate and engage.

Emily Davies, Head of Social Impact, Amey, commented: “We believe every organisation must demonstrate leadership by both committing to net zero and putting greater pace into reducing absolute emissions.

“Globally, there is an increasing urgency to reduce our collective impact on the world’s climate. We support the UN Global Goals and call for action on climate change. We share their ambition for investment in low carbon innovation and infrastructure. We recognise the importance of focusing that investment on sectors that support sustainable growth, create fair and employment and accelerate decarbonisation of the economy.

“Our Roadmap to Net Zero sets out our commitment to this global challenge and our approach to achieving our own carbon goals.”

Amey’s progress so far includes establishing a carbon and climate change working group, realising a company car fleet that comprises only of fully electric vehicles, plug-in hybrids or petrol/electric hybrids and procuring 100 per cent renewable energy.
