Lambert Smith Hampton (LSH), a leading UK commercial and residential real estate consultancy and agency, has achieved Planet Mark Business Certification.
Achieving Planet Mark Business Certification is based on an organisation’s commitment to continuous improvement in sustainability in its business operations by measuring and reducing its carbon footprint, engaging its stakeholders and accurately communicating its sustainability journey.
LSH is committed to reducing its carbon emissions and sharing its journey with its community to inspire others. By working hard to put a net zero action plan in place the company is being more strategic about its environmental responsibility and will be able to significantly increase its positive impact by encouraging all stakeholders to work with them towards net zero.
“We are delighted with Lambert Smith Hampton’s continuous commitment to reducing their carbon emissions. LSH’s determination to put its best foot forward toward achieving net zero by following the Planet Mark Net Zero Programme serves as a clear indicator of its commitment to supporting a more sustainable world. By paving a clear route to this goal, LSH is placing itself as an industry leader. Something which is only possible through accountable action across the whole organisation.”
LSH is committed to reducing absolute scope 1 and 2 emissions by 95% by 2030 against a 2020 baseline and Scope 3 by 50% by 2030 against a 2021 baseline. LSH is progressing on their journey to net zero through the Planet Mark Net Zero Programme, which is aligned with climate science to limit warming to 1.5°C above pre-industrial levels.
It is crucial that the property industry seize the opportunity to further its impetus when it comes to climate change and sustainability. The built environment is a major polluter across the globe, and lessening emissions in this sector is crucial to national and global climate goals. The industry must embrace climate-positive operational processes and find sustainable solutions to its business practices.
Through Planet Mark, LSH has also helped the Eden Project – an educational charity building connections with each other and the living world, exploring how we can work together towards a better future.
To recertify next year Lambert Smith Hampton must reduce emissions by 2.5%.
A 5% year-on-year reduction is the target reduction recommended by Planet Mark.
