Net Zero and Future Ready

WSP in the UK are committed to achieving carbon neutrality in our own UK operations by 2025 and to becoming Net Zero across our global value chain by 2040. We’re Proud to be the first company in our sector to make such ambitious commitments to limit the effects of climate change.

If governments and society do nothing to reduce carbon emissions, the future will bring irreversible damage to our climate and environments. 

Through our Future Ready Programme, we see the future more clearly through key trends in climate change, society, technology and resources and challenge our staff to work with clients to advise on solutions that are both ready for today and for the future.

For HS2’s Curzon Street Station in Birmingham, we held a Future Ready workshop to consider how to meet the client’s requirement for achieving operational net zero and reducing lifetime emissions by 50%.

The workshop resulted in measures such as engineering flexibility into the station for a future connection to the Birmingham District Energy Scheme. Bespoke design workshops identified more than 40 opportunities to cut carbon, including reducing paving depth by 38%.

We will work together with our clients and partners to tackle more green projects, harnessing tools to make lower carbon design choices, and building on our team’s skills in low carbon thinking.

At WSP, our approach to being Future Ready includes our commitment to cut our carbon footprint.
