Our Environmental Footprint
Hammerson has set out an ambition to become Net Positive in carbon emissions, water, resource use and socio-economic impacts by 2030. One of the critical steps in establishing a strategy for achieving this is to develop comprehensive and robust baseline data for each of these four impact areas. As part of this process, in August 2016 Hammerson appointed JLL Sustainability Upstream to undertake a detailed carbon footprinting exercise. This was a complex but revealing exercise that has been important in helping shape our strategy for tackling our Net Positive objective.
The Footprinting Report showcases the significant shift change in reporting boundaries as a result of the Net Positive commitment. Under Net Positive, we have significantly extended our reporting approach to include emissions from the tenanted areas of our assets.
