CLIMATE CHANGE & GLOBAL WARMING
At Signbox we have begun to make steps to evaluate our company’s carbon output and to understand where we need to make changes, what our carbon emission are and how we can offset them and in doing so become a more socially responsible and sustainable company.
This includes re-evaluating ourselves and our supply chain and taking a closer look at all the materials we are using.
The actions of responsible companies will play an increasingly important role in responding appropriately to the climate emergency. Drastic action is required to combat global warming so we must all be accountable for the part we play and try to implement sustainable alternatives wherever possible.
THE STEPS WE ARE TAKING
THE CONSTRUCTION INDUSTRY
The Construction Industry is responsible for 40% of global GHG emissions. The major contributors are materials used, heating, cooling and lightly of buildings and infrastructure.
Parts of the construction industry are already taking a lead in addressing these challenges. Globally, the World Green Building Council has issued a Net Zero Carbon Buildings Commitment by 2030 and advocates for all buildings in operation to be net zero in operation by 2050.
We all have an important part to play to ensure we live and run our businesses in a more environmentally conscious and sustainable way, and we need to start making these changes today!
The climate emergency demands action from all of us. We need to get to net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050 and everyone has a role to play,”
Niklas Hagelberg, UNEP’s Climate Change Coordinator.
We are dedicated to reducing our carbon emissions and have built our business model canvas around achieving this goal. For more information about the activities we are undertaking get in touch to discuss.
