chapmanbdsp makes net zero commitment

Today we are launching The chapmanbdsp Sustainability Charter, with a commitment to becoming a net zero carbon business in the UK by 2025.

We aim to demonstrate this against measurable science-based targets and by aligning our ambitions to the United Nation’s (UN) Sustainable Development Goals.

Last year, we published our commitments on the environment. Today, we are going further, setting out a vision to be a global leader in the design of beautiful, sustainable places, that protect people, nature and the planet and a mission to become a leading net zero carbon consultancy.

This vision is amplified in The chapmanbdsp Sustainability Charter, which reflects our deep commitments to people, nature and the planet.

Our 12 targeted commitments are spread across four themes and are aligned with the UN’s Sustainable Development goals. In addition to our annual reporting on Earth Day, we are also committing to posting monthly charter updates on our website.

The charter aligns with our core values and sits alongside our ISO14001 and social value objectives. It is also reinforced through The chapmanbdp Way, a staff guide to the philosophy and principles that underpin the business.

Commenting on our new charter, Susan Hone-Brookes, Director of Sustainability at chapmanbdsp, said: "It’s been an absolute pleasure working with the team to deliver this charter. It represents quite a pivotal moment in the history of chapmanbdsp.

"The changes made this year will strengthen our resolve to drive towards our goal of establishing ourselves as a global leader in the design of beautiful, sustainable places. I’m very much looking forward to working with everyone over the coming months and years to deliver our commitments."

Ray Upjohn, Chief Executive of chapmanbdsp, added: “We are extremely excited about this charter, as it aligns our business strategy and path to net zero carbon with our delivery of sustainable projects around the globe.”
