This is EVORA’s seventh year of business carbon footprint reporting and certification to Planet Mark. It first calculated the carbon footprint of its London, Birmingham and Bolton site operations for the year ending August 2020.
EVORA’s total carbon footprint in the year ending August 2020 was 34.9 tCO2e, a decrease of 3.5% from the year ending 2019 when normalised. The relative carbon footprint was 0.61 tCO2e per employee, a decrease of 44.7% compared to the year ending 2019 when normalised.
EVORA’s Social Value contribution in the year ending 2020 was £61,197. It reported on 17 Social Value measures with the top three contributors being initiatives to support staff working remotely, providing training opportunities and providing access to multidimensional wellbeing programs.
“This year’s Planet Mark certification has been challenging for many reasons, but it’s fantastic to see EVORA thriving in spite of changing circumstances. As a team of sustainability professionals, their know-how is undisputed, but this knowledge is coupled with a palpable passion to drive change. EVORA’s Planet Mark certification shows a willingness to apply its expertise to its own operations and walk the walk on sustainability. I applaud the company’s efforts in reducing its carbon footprint this year.”

The built environment contributes 20% of all the United Kingdom’s carbon emissions. With 97% of the nation’s building stock needing to be adapted to meet global climate targets, the industry finds itself in dire need of action and leadership.
