SAVILLS UK HAS A COMMITMENT TO BE NET ZERO BY 2030

 “Nine Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) have been chosen as the framework for the Savills UK sustainability strategy as they give a common language for sustainability reporting to our key stakeholders. As a company, we have looked at the 17 SDGs and aligned ourselves to nine, chosen as they are deemed to be those where Savills can make the biggest impact. Our net zero commitment builds upon the work we have already done to reduce our business’s carbon and wider environmental impacts over several years. For example, in 2020 our UK emissions were reduced by 36% compared to our 2018 benchmark, work which was also recognised by the Financial Times who listed Savills as a European Climate Leader 2021. The net zero challenge belongs to us all and we welcome sharing best practice as our business, along with the wider real estate industry, continue to transition into a greener economy.” Lizzie Jones, Head of CSR at Savills UK
