A call for real transparency
We think more transparency is an opportunity for greater control and influence over emissions. We believe that if all major contractors took this approach, there would be a more complete picture of emissions.
The exact ratio of the difference will vary, depending on each company’s delivery model.
However, including an estimate of supply chain emissions will always give a more transparent picture of tier one contractors’ emissions. It will also provide the industry’s customers with a more realistic view of the emissions impact of their projects.
Greater transparency is essential if the sector is to realistically tackle the carbon emissions it produces.
