JN Bentley makes carbon commitments

JN Bentley has committed to becoming net zero for all emissions by 2040.


The company has also committed to becoming net zero for all scope 1 and 2 (direct) emissions by 2030. The commitments cover JN Bentley, Mott MacDonald Bentley and JBA Bentley.


The UK Government target is to achieve net zero carbon emissions by 2050, with the UK water sector committing to net zero operational emissions by 2030. With over 50% of UK carbon emissions sourced directly or indirectly from infrastructure, the time to act to reduce the impacts of climate change and protect the planet for future generations is now.


There are six strands to the carbon approach. These steer the company’s route to net zero:


1. Leadership

2. Learning

3. Compliance with PAS 2080

4. Operationally Green

5. Low carbon solutions

6. Measures and targets


The company is putting the finishing touches to its roadmap to 2040 and will share further details over the coming months.


Acting now will protect the planet for future generations and help deliver improved value for clients as they too strive to achieve their own carbon goals.


Whilst the task in hand requires great collective effort from stakeholders across industry, launching the carbon commitments is an important step for JN Bentley. Doing carbon ‘well’ will focus minds on innovation, collaboration and thinking that little bit differently – all things on which the organisation prides itself.


Although today marks the launch of the commitments, work is already well underway towards achieving them.


A number of projects can boast impressive low carbon credentials and a dedicated carbon working group is focusing on areas of the organisation that can make an immediate impact, including a constant review of the mix of vehicles on the company fleet, alternative fuels and office energy consumption.


Keep across the company’s social media channels for examples of work already underway during the next week.
