Coombs’ climate commitment

Coombs’ climate commitment

The A.G. Coombs Group has committed to achieving net zero Scope 1 and Scope 2 operational emissions by 2030. The building services specialist will work with its value chain, industry partners and customers to achieve net zero Scope 3 emissions by 2040.

“Climate change is the most critical challenge facing the world today,” A.G. Coombs says. 

“Through their construction and operation, buildings are responsible for nearly 40 per cent of annual global CO2 emissions. The A.G. Coombs Group is committed to minimising its emissions impact.” 

The company says the world must move from a “best endeavours” carbon-reduction process to a definitive and transparently accounted for elimination approach. 

“It is important that A.G. Coombs as a significant provider in the Australian property and building construction industry’s supply chain has a strong process in place to be part of this transition,” says A.G. Coombs Group managing director Russell Telford, “including a clear commitment to a net zero operating position.”
