From the buildings it work with to the offices the team resides in, the whole supply chain is evaluated for the purpose of environmental gains. The company also has a well rounded view of sustainability, one that pushes beyond carbon, to incorporate the value of communities and social sustainability. But underpinning all of this is a tremendous decrease in carbon footprint. I’m proud to work with Stanhope and hope to continue seeing such fantastic progress.”

Certification story

Stanhope has made a number of commitments to sustainability in addition to its Planet Mark certification. The company aims to reduce its carbon footprint in line with a World Green Building Council Net Zero Commitment and grasp the opportunity to make a positive social contribution where possible. The Stanhope has to be ‘Climate Positive’ from last year. For 2019-2020 onwards, Stanhope has elected to offset its emissions following advice from UKGBC; via carefully selected Gold Standard certified offsets, twinned with woodland carbon capture certified through the Woodland Carbon Code.

Real estate is one of the largest contributors to climate change in the UK. Buildings emit a huge amount of carbon, from the emissions of construction, through occupational emissions, to the emissions created through design. Measuring and cutting carbon must include a whole lifecycle approach to sustainability. Sustainable real estate companies have a huge opportunity to lead the industry in best practice as society revolutionises its building stock to meet its climate goals. 

Future targets

As part of the Planet Mark certification, Stanhope has committed to making a year-on-year reduction.
