    Protecting and enhancing our world.

We are keen to set the highest sustainable standards.

Our objective is to achieve net zero carbon for all of our directly controlled greenhouse gas emissions by 2030. Our commitment to supporting the environments we work in is reflected by three principal objectives which are:

Reducing our greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions

To consistently reduce the amount of GHG emissions we produce and implement innovative ways to achieve the lowest possible level of emissions – to ultimately reach net zero carbon.

Consuming resources responsibly

To proactively reduce our resource use and waste creation through improved design and processes, and by implementing circular economy principles.

To be a steward of nature

Henry Boot are committed to protecting and enhancing the environment in all business operations and are proud of our achievements to date and our people’s expertise and enthusiasm in making this happen.

In June 2021, we published our NZC Framework (see below) which sets out 3 focused objectives that our Group will strive to achieve:

  • To achieve NZC for our directly controlled GHG emissions (Scopes 1 and 2) by 2030.
  • To enhance our understanding of our indirectly controlled GHG emissions and deliver reduction solutions.
  • To empower our people and partners to take positive action to collaboratively decarbonise.
