Science-Based Targets with Morgan Sindall Group
First UK company in the construction sector to have their SBTs approved
Morgan Sindall Group, one of the UK’s largest construction and infrastructure companies, wanted to gain approval for science-based targets, including complex Scope 3 GHG emissions, to drive emissions reductions within the business, and to show their ongoing commitment to being a responsible business. At the outset of this process, the client had assessed Scope 3 emissions on a limited basis. IMS worked closely with the carbon team at Morgan Sindall Group to agree the appropriate methodology, assess the impact of Scope 3 emissions across all of the companies’ divisions for each of the 15 GHG categories and develop a submission that was put to the Science Based Targets Initiative (SBTI).
Because no other UK construction companies had submitted, or had approved, Science Based Targets, Morgan Sindall Group and IMS were very much setting the bar for Scope 3, both with the SBTI and the industry peers.
THE SBT SUBMISSION WAS SUCCESSFUL.
Morgan Sindall Group is the first amongst its industry peers, and one of only three construction companies globally, to adopt and gain approval for long-term greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions reduction targets.
