iDCC Services, an established family run building contractor specialising in construction, maintenance, and refurbishment, has achieved Planet Mark certification.
This is iDCC Services’ second year of business carbon footprint reporting and Planet Mark certification. Since certifying to Planet Mark, the company has set a target to reduce emissions by 5% annually.
iDCC Services’ total carbon footprint in the year ending December 2020 was 167.2 tCO2e, a reduction of 5%. iDCC Services’ total carbon per employee in the year ending 2020 was 11.9 tCO2e, a reduction of 5%.
iDCC’s carbon reduction is the equivalent of preventing 22,000 road miles from being driven.
“Congratulations to iDDC Services for achieving its annual carbon reduction target for 2020. In a difficult year for so many businesses, it is always encouraging to see continued efforts to bring climate action to life. The iDDC team has set its sight on real change over the coming years, and this past year was an important stepping stone on that journey. I take great pleasure in helping companies realise their climate goals, and iDDC has been a tremendous partner to work with.”
At iDCC, sustainability is an integral part of its business. The company believes in supporting local communities and conducting business in the most sustainable and socially responsible way. Its bold action is echoed through its supply chain, having pledged to a number of ambitious targets. These include becoming carbon neutral by 2025 through conversion to an electric fleet, operating its head office on 100% renewable energy and improving its procurement processes. It also has a zero-harm policy that aims to identify and reduce its main environmental impacts. The company currently has an 89% recycling ratio – diverting over 450 tonnes of waste away from landfills.
The construction industry is one of the world’s largest polluters. In the United Kingdom, the built environment is responsible for nearly 20% of the nation’s carbon emissions. Sweeping changes must be made to the industry in the face of climate change, from on-site practice to creating sustainable and circular supply chains.
As part of the Planet Mark certification, iDCC has committed to making a year-on-year reduction.
