Advocacy & Influence
John Sisk & Son is a signatory to Contractors’ Declare.
Sisk recognises that immediate action is required to transform their operations and support the global effort to reduce carbon emissions. By working with the Achilles Carbon Reduce Programme, they intend to affect a paradigm shift in their approach to energy use, moving away from the carbon intensive energy used in their processes by using renewable power, batteries and alternative fuels.
They are committed to working with others, such as UKGBC and IGBC on advocacy, and calling on governments for stronger action towards a carbon neutral built environment. Additionally, influencing clients through their use of innovation and digital technology to identify and implement carbon reduction measures.
Their 2030 Sustainability Roadmap is transparent and focuses on real targets and practical actions. They intend to deliver these targets working collaboratively with their supply chain, actively engaging, learning and sharing support and advice. They acknowledge the key part these partners play in achieving their target ambition to become a carbon neutral business by 2030, without the need for offsetting.
Sisk have committed to the Science Based Targets initiative, ensuring their ambitious targets support efforts to limit global temperature increases to 1.5⁰C.
Since 2020, Sisk have been a carbon neutral certified business through the use of renewable energy and offsetting their unavoidable emissions through internationally accredited carbon reduction schemes. Sisk will continue to measure, manage and reduce their own emissions, and by including additional Scope 3 emissions in their carbon intensity targets, also help their supply chain partners achieve their own ambitions.
