At Resapol, sustainability and environmental responsibility are core values that drive our business practices.
Over the past 23 years, we have embarked on a journey to reduce our carbon footprint and minimize our environmental impact in all areas of our operations. We remain committed to this journey, continuously updating and developing our targets and aspirations as we progress.
As part of our efforts we have set goals that align with CO2nstructZero, a framework for sustainable construction. In November 2020, the Government published its 10-point plan for a Green Industrial Revolution that set out a path to Net Zero by 2050. CO2nstructZero is the construction sector’s response that sets out how the industry can collectively meet the ambitious targets. We believe that by adhering to this framework, we can help to drive positive change in the construction industry and promote a more sustainable future for generations to come.
Our sustainability journey so far has been focused on key areas that reflect our commitment to social, environmental, and economic sustainability whilst also aligning with CO2nstructZero.
