Promoting Sustainable Growth
We are actively engaged in working with our local communities to design, fund and construct our developments in a sustainable manner ensuring we minimise our impact on both the local ecosystem and the planet. We work with all of our partners to ensure we can deliver on their environmental aspirations as well as our own.
We have committed to reducing our direct (Scopes 1 and 2) greenhouse gas emissions by 40% before 2030, supporting our partners in their quest for better energy efficiency and supporting their adoption of an environmentally responsible approach. We also are committed to integrating our developments into their surroundings ensuring there is no net loss of biodiversity.
At VINCI UK Developments we leverage not only our own Group capability at :
- VINCI Construction
- VINCI Facilities
- VINCI Technology Centre
- VINCI Energies including Eurovia, Actemium, Omexon
- Taylor Woodrow
- as well as other group divisional subsidiaries,
but also the innovation, creativity and best practice within the wider development and investment market, to the benefit of our own development projects seeking to maximise the full environmental benefit of a development’s whole lifecycle.
We recognise that we have around 10 years before we reach the climate “tipping point” beyond which climate change is both irreversible and catastrophic. To address the problem our behaviours need to change – as individuals, as organisations and as a society. As part of this we carefully consider the challenge to shape our approach on each and every scheme, looking to current and emerging best practice ensuring a resilient, sustainable approach and to ensure we are part of the solution.
