In 2016, we reduced our carbon emissions by 10%, giving a total reduction of 52% since 2010, a significant achievement. Our carbon intensity, the ratio of carbon emissions to Group revenue, decreased by 16.6% to 12.0 (2015: 14.0). We achieved a carbon disclosure score of A- with CDP – an organisation that encourages companies to measure environmental impact – under their new grading structure and were the only company in the UK index to score so highly.
Overbury was a lead sponsor and development partner of SKA HE, an environmental assessment tool developed by the RICS for application to refurbishment in the higher education sector. In 2016, Overbury was also invited to become a member of the SKA technical committee. Since the launch of the tool, the division has achieved a bronze and a silver rating on two of its higher education projects.
In 2016 we diverted 96.2% of our waste from landfill which is a significant improvement on our performance in 2015 (90% diverted).
Our priorities for 2017 are:
