CArbon Reduction Plan

Bermar Building are pleased to be committed to achieving Net Zero emissions by 2035.

For many years, Bermar has been taking action to reduce carbon emissions from onsite and off-site activities and created guidelines for travel, waste management and energy use.

Huge strides have been made with diverting waste from landfill, promoting fuel efficient travel and investing in the planting of trees to off-set residual carbon emissions.

Through a combination of energy efficiency, water conservation, supply chain collaboration and employee engagement, we can aim to achieve Net Zero carbon emissions by 2035.  Bermar Building will continue to take further action to increase energy efficiency and water resources used on construction sites, reduce carbon emissions and retain its place as a sustainable and environmentally conscious firm in the construction industry.  We are proud to launch our Carbon Reduction Plan.
