Kier Recognised For Its Sustainability Achievements

Construction News Image
Construction firm Kier has been recognised by three major organisations for its sustainability achievements and targets, in a key milestone for its ESG strategy.

The company has been awarded the London Stock Exchange Green Economy Mark, given to listed companies which can demonstrate that 50% of their revenue is derived from green products and services.

Group-wide targets to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions have also been validated by the UN-backed Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi), following the successful implementation of the Group’s Carbon Reduction Plan. The validated long-term targets include achieving net zero for scope 1, 2 and 3 emissions by 2045.

Kier's Infrastructure Services and Construction segments are also now PAS 2080 certified – the leading standard for carbon management solutions in buildings and infrastructure.

The achievements are a key milestone for Kier’s sustainability strategy, following the launch of its updated ‘Building for a Sustainable World’ framework last year, and demonstrate the Group’s commitment to its aim of sustainably delivering infrastructure which is vital to the UK.
