At FMDC we understand the importance for SMEs to play a part in responsible business. We are a member of Heart of the City, doing their online programme, ‘Foundations for Responsible Business’. With their support, we are developing activities around looking after our people’s health and wellbeing, supporting our local community and reducing our environmental impact. And this is all part of our responsible business strategy that helps our business to do well by doing good.
Besides striving to reduce carbon emissions of the buildings we work on, we want to lead by example and commit to reducing our own business emissions. We are currently in the process of measuring our carbon footprint, including scope 1, 2 & 3 GHG emissions, with a view to sign up to the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi) in 2024. The Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi) is a partnership that ensures companies’ emissions reduction targets are consistent with achieving a Net Zero world by no later than 2050 and that they are aligned to a 1.5°C future.
