Collins has partnered with Grosvenor on their pioneering Net-Zero Mentoring Programme as part of our own commitment to building better and more sustainable environments.
The partnership is one element of the Collins Sustainability Roadmap to 2025 to ensure we continually minimise the environmental impact of our operations year on year.
By joining the programme, Collins has committed to achieving the gold standard of climate pledges to accelerate our ability to measure and monitor our carbon footprint. The scheme has been developed along with 37 other SMEs including architects, building surveyors, contractors, security, recruitment, construction and maintenance firms.
Over the next eight months, the organisations involved will gain support across workshops, clinic sessions and 1:1 mentoring in calculating baselines, setting an action plan, and achieving a validated Science Based Target. The SBTi's Corporate Net-Zero Standard is the world's first framework for net-zero target setting in line with climate science, to help limit global temperature rise to 1.5°C.
Last week, Collins’s Head of Sustainability, Anisha Mayor, attended the first session of the eight-month programme where the tools and resources available to help complete the programme were introduced. The workshop was interactive with an opportunity to learn from Heart of the City, Grosvenor’s sustainability experts, and other SMEs on the programme.
Anisha Mayor, Head of Sustainability at Collins Construction, said: “We are delighted to be working alongside Grosvenor on our carbon reduction journey. As a company, we are making a conscious effort to reduce our carbon emissions and have set our own ambitious internal targets.
Over the past three years we have off-set our scope two and three emissions, which include our head office, sites, and business travel emissions, with certified reduction schemes and we continue to work closely with our clients and supply chain to minimise the environmental impact of our operations. By partnering with Grosvenor and achieving a Science Based Target, we will strengthen our carbon strategy even further to ensure an industry-leading approach.”
