Why SNC-Lavalin is driving full speed ahead on the road to Net Zero
It is widely accepted that society must act fast to reduce the rising impacts of climate change.
At AtkinsRéalis , and within our brands, Atkins, Faithful+Gould, and Acuity our business strategy is based around the United Nation’s (UN) Sustainable Business Goals. Our vision is to create sustainable solutions that connect people, data, and technology to design, deliver and operate the most complex projects. As a global, future-focused business, we have an obligation to establish solutions that address global challenges, from growing populations to climate change.
The regions in which we work are all experiencing climate change differently. Some low coastal regions such as those in Asia Pacific will be subject to more frequent flooding, whereas hurricanes are seen more often in the North Atlantic region for example. Therefore, we want to ensure that the activities we undertake to conduct our business are responsible and beneficial to the environment, society, and the local and global economies.
What is Net Zero?
To achieve net-zero there must be a reduction in greenhouse gas emissions and/or any ongoing emissions are to be balanced by removals. The 2015 Paris Agreement emphasises the necessity for net-zero, requiring countries to ‘achieve a balance between anthropogenic emissions by sources and removals by sinks of greenhouse gases in the second half of this century’.
From moving to a low carbon economy to adopting a sustainable business strategy, our approach at AtkinsRéalis means we can adapt to and anticipate global changes, and support our clients in delivering long-term, sustainable results.
Achieving Net-Zero in APAC
The wider APAC region, encompassing many countries, time zones, and communities, has already been experiencing the devastating impacts of climate change. In India, the seventh most vulnerable country with respect to climate extremes, a spike in weather events including unprecedented rain and flooding triggered environmentalists to call on the government to prioritise climate-proof infrastructure and buildings.
Sustainable construction is a viable option to help achieve net zero and
solve other issues in APAC.
In Hong Kong, for example, it is expected to help the city’s housing crisis. Green
building is being increasingly used in Hong Kong it drives key energy
efficiencies through the integration of green technologies, whilst
simultaneously reducing carbon.
