Infrastructure services and engineering company Amey has joined the Business Ambition for 1.5°C Campaign, the global movement of leading companies working to limit global temperature rise.
This campaign brings together the world’s largest group of companies committed to working to climate targets based on the scientific evidence. It also means Amey becomes part of the UN backed campaign – Race to Zero.
Amey already has already committed to achieving an absolute reduction in its emissions by 80% by 2035 based on a 2019 baseline and to be be fully net zero by 2040
“Committing to set science-based targets is crucial if we are to collectively limit global warming to 1.5°C,” said Amey’s Chief Executive Officer Amanda Fisher. “I am delighted that Amey has joined this campaign. This ambitious goal to halve global emissions by 2030 will permeate through all that Amey does, from providing innovative solutions, to supporting clients to reach their own carbon reduction targets, through to creating more environmentally sustainable infrastructure for the communities we serve.”
Amey says evidence so far suggests that following a 1.5°C compliant business model is possible and has positive impacts as the global economy undergoes a transition to a net-zero future.
Amey will work with SBTi to validate and report on these targets.
