Lendlease reveals decarbonisation roadmap for Asia
This is in support of achieving Absolute Zero Carbon by 2040.
Lendlease launched the Mission Zero Roadmap for Asia, as the company moves toward its goals: net zero by 2025 and absolute-zero carbon by 2040.
Steps were detailed in the roadmap as Lendlease expands across Asia. These include the reduction of Scope 1, 2, and 3 emissions across Lendlease’s assets.
The scope 1 emissions are direct emissions from Lendlease-owned and controlled resources. These are produced directly from fuels burnt. To combat this, alternative onsite fuels and increased use of electric construction plants.
Meanwhile, scope 2 emissions are indirect emissions from the generation of purchased energy from a utility provider. Steps to lower this include the increase of renewable energy to 100% by 2030, the increase of onsite solar generation on assets, and the integration of renewable energy infrastructure on new developments.
Finally, the scope 3 emissions are all indirect emissions that occur upstream and downstream of Lendlease’s value chain through a review of materials and services procured. Initiatives include investing in research and development and the collaboration with suppliers to eliminate embodied carbon in construction materials. Tenants will also partner with the company to reduce their emissions and develop next-generation green leases.
