Beyond its own journey, Equans is also committed to combining its expertise to support its clients in their own energy and net zero transitions and has helped them collectively reduce their emissions by over 400,000 tonnes over the last 5-years. The business offers a wide range of services to address every area of carbon reduction including the development of net zero roadmaps, changing of energy mix, heating, cooling, e-mobility and building refurbishment.
Jean-Philippe Loiseau, CEO of Equans UK & Ireland said: “Answering the climate emergency remains the most important challenge of our times. We are proud to lead by example through accelerating our commitment to reach net zero with the implementation of our new roadmap and by committing to the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi).
"Aside from our own actions, we also take seriously our role as an enabler for many of our customers in their own energy transition and net zero journey. They are able to benefit from the unique depth of expertise we have gained over many years in both decarbonization and the development of net zero solutions - something which remains a real differentiator within our sector. We hope that by sharing our own commitments and progress we will inspire others to themselves take enhanced action to make net zero carbon happen”
Jamie Quinn, Director of Responsible Business and SHEQ commented: "Our commitment is a reflection of the decarbonisation journey we have already taken as a business, strengthened within a framework of clear targets and concrete actions. This commitment contributes to the global movement responding to the climate emergency, the expectations from our employees, clients, and the communities in which we operate. We look forward to working with our stakeholders over the coming months and years to make net zero a reality”
