Amber Infrastructure Group, a leading sponsor, developer, fund and asset manager of infrastructure, real estate and sustainable energy projects, has achieved certification to the Planet Mark.
Amber Infrastructure’s total carbon footprint in the year ending December 2019 was 232.0 tCO2e, a decrease of 31.6% from the year ending 2018. The relative carbon footprint was 1.7 tCO2e per employee, a decrease of 39.9% compared to the year ending 2018.
This is Amber Infrastructure’s seventh year of business carbon footprint reporting. Amber first calculated the carbon footprint of its London and Sydney offices for the year ending December 2014 and set a target to reduce emissions by 5% annually. This year’s footprint includes emissions from electricity, natural gas, water usage, business travel, waste disposal and paper used in the offices.
Electricity emissions decreased by 53% and account for 14% of total carbon emissions. Business travel emissions decreased by 28.6%, with air travel being the biggest contributor to travel related emissions, and accounts for 45% of the total emissions.
“Amber Infrastructure Group are a model example of a modern, sustainable company. The group’s fantastic carbon reduction this year is the payoff of excellent work, driven by a desire for sustainable change throughout the company. As we all work to lower our carbon footprint, Amber Infrastructure Group should serve as an exemplar to all in the industry.”
