Laing O'Rourke's Renewable Energy Sourcing Philosophy

Laing O’Rourke has set short and long-term targets for decarbonising its activities. The company plans to be operationally net zero by 2030, by reducing Scope 1 and 2 emissions by 75% and offsetting the remainder with carbon offsets. A significant part of this is achieved by sourcing renewable energy and energy attribute certificates. By 2050, Laing O’Rourke aims to be net zero.

The production of renewable electricity is certified by Energy Attribute Certificates (EACs). These are the accepted legal instrument through which claims of renewable energy generation and consumption are substantiated in the global renewable energy market. There are different types of EAC for different regions of the world, and they are all in compliance with the quality criteria set by the Greenhouse Gas Protocol in the latest Scope 2 guidance document.
