Science Based Target

Advocacy & Influence

BDP is a signatory of both Architects Declare and Engineers Declare.

Since 2013, BDP has reduced their annual energy consumption consistently through a series of targeted interventions, reducing scope 1 and 2 emissions by over 50% per capita. Building on this progress, BDP has begun to measure and monitor scope 3 emissions in their pursuance of a Science Based Target and ambition to reduce their indirect emissions. This has been aided by the successful implementation in 2018 of a Sustainable Procurement Policy and Sustainable Travel Plan. In addition to physical upgrades, key to BDP’s progress has been building a community of sustainability champions across the practice to help promote positive change internally and externally. BDP are also utilising their expertise to develop robust outcome-led design frameworks for circular and low carbon design.
