The target is set out in the company’s Roadmap to Absolute Zero Carbon, detailing how the business intends to achieve its environmental targets in Europe.

Lendlease says it will be Net Zero Carbon by 2025 for Scope 1 emissions, produced directly from the fuels it burns, and Scope 2 emissions from the power it consumes. It will then be Absolute Zero Carbon by 2040, eliminating all emissions, including Scope 3 generated indirectly from its activities, without the use of offsetting (paying for credits).
