Our independently audited, science-based carbon targets will be a step in the the right direction - and we are as dedicated to learning on our journey as we are to reaching the destination.
To hit our targets, we are building and implementing a plan that aligns with our business strategy, supports firm-wide ESG goals and includes our entire Hines portfolio 1.
Most importantly, our plan will be public, so investors, developers, engineers and building managers across our industry can use it to guide their own carbon-reduction efforts.
To reach our net zero targets, we will seek to implement custom plans that include one or more of the following tactics:
- Reducing energy demand through operational efficiency
- Increasing reliance on renewable energy
- Utilizing circular systems to reduce energy waste and enhance system efficiency
- Advancing carbon capture
- Analyzing electrification impacts and removing fossil fuel use from our portfolio
