Our Sustainability

We Are the Custodians of the Tidal Thames


Sustainability is based on the concept of leaving the earth in a better state for nature, people and economics, than we received it and we are committed to this for the tidal Thames as its custodians. We are also continually working hard to improve our own operations and reduce our impact on the environment as the climate, world and work we do also changes.
We will achieve Net Zero by 2040 or sooner, and have committed to more than halve our carbon emissions by 2025. We will reduce our particulate matter and nitrogen oxide emissions to at least 90% by 2050.
We have been reducing our energy usage by improving energy efficiency of our buildings. installing renewables and exploring the likely mix and demand for energy in the future.
Resources are finite. Adopting Circular Economy principles, using renewable, reclaimed and recycled materials and dealing appropriately with any remaining waste.
The 17 SDGs are a shared blueprint for peace and prosperity, for people and the planet. We have assessed all the work we do against the UN SDGs.
