Regional contractor achieves CarbonNeutral® status

Our role

  • CarbonNeutral® status is a voluntary standard which enables organisations to demonstrate the progress they are making towards net zero and aligning with climate change mitigation.
  • Our Sustainability team carried out an audit on the company’s greenhouse gas emissions and advised on carbon reduction measures across the business.
  • Our audit supported Russell WBHO’s findings and recommended additional activity to help achieve some targets even earlier than planned. 
  • We also worked with Climate Impact Partners, which supports more than 600 projects worldwide, to help Russell WBHO in their investment in three schemes which align with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.


  • The accreditation is the first major milestone in the company’s journey to becoming net zero by 2038.
  • Russell WBHO has pledged a future reduction in greenhouse gas emissions by a number of methods including transferring to a green energy supplier, installing solar panels at the Trafford Park headquarters and on the roofs of project site facilities, improving office lighting and heating efficiency, and decarbonising further by transferring site generators from diesel to biofuel. This is expected to reduce CO2 emissions by at least 77% by 2030, the halfway point in the Net Zero by 2038 strategy.
  • The Russell WBHO team will also maintain a long-term commitment to the sustainable sourcing of materials, and employing local labour and sub-contractors.
