Net Zero Carbon Buildings Commitment

Arup joined the WGBC’s Net Zero Carbon Buildings Commitment in 2020, a global initiative aimed at achieving 100% net zero carbon buildings in operation by 2050. In joining this initiative, the firm has also committed to reaching net zero carbon in operation for all assets under its control by 2030. The goal will be achieved by a range of measures including improving the performance of its building portfolio and moving to 100% renewable electricity by 2023.

In 2021, Arup signed the updated commitment, promising sector-leading action on whole life carbon emissions. The firm pledges to go further and faster to tackle operational and embodied emissions from real estate assets, stimulating the innovative approaches, solutions and business models necessary for the entire sector to reach 2050 goals.
