SBTi approves NG Bailey’s science-based climate change plan

Independent engineering and services business, NG Bailey, has become one of just 10 UK construction and engineering companies to have a science-based target to tackle greenhouse gas emissions approved by the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi).

It has had a 1.5°C near term and net zero commitment target approved by the leading environmental body and has committed to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from sources it owns and controls directly, as well as those it causes indirectly, by 50 per cent by 2031. NG Bailey has also pledged to ensure 75 per cent of its suppliers have science-based targets in place themselves by 2027.

Natalie Wilkinson, Head of Responsibility at NG Bailey said: “NG Bailey already has a long history of being a responsible business when it comes to sustainability, reducing our absolute emissions by 27 per cent to date while setting out our longer-term ambitions in our Net Positive strategy.

“However, as one of the UK’s leading M&E suppliers, we know we are at the forefront of being able to directly influence the transition to a lower carbon future. By taking the steps to have our science-based targets approved, we now not only have a clear roadmap for reducing our own emissions but can offer better lower emissions solutions for our clients, many of whom are on their own journeys.

“We know that the road ahead will be a long one, but by working together as an industry and committing to setting science-based targets, we are one step closer to making a net zero future possible.”
