Block-maker H+H UK Ltd is taking part in the sustainability strategy published by its parent H+H Group, which commits the company to achieving net zero emissions by 2050.
The strategy comprises a comprehensive sustainability roadmap, committing all its operations to specific performance targets which are aligned to the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDG).
The most significant of these is the commitment to achieving net-zero emissions in the company’s operations and products by 2050. The target and the plan set out to achieve this goal is expected to be submitted to achieve verification as a ‘science based target’.
In preparing to plan its zero carbon journey, H+H has undertaken a life-cycle analysis on its aircrete products in order to provide an accurate benchmark against which to measure progress, and is also committing to reducing water used by 5% by 2024 and energy consumption per m3 by 7%.
There are four specific focus areas, considering its contribution to: sustainable buildings; climate and environmental impact; safety and people and business integrity.
Managing director Calum Forsyth says: “In its sustainability report, H+H Group is setting out its direction for the business into the future. We are particularly pleased with the objective rigour on which this report is based. Aligning the Group with UN Goals, and taking a measured, scientific approach to analysing carbon emissions ensures that our results will be robust and demonstrable.”
