Shaping a More Responsible Future

In April 2021, Laing O'Rourke (LOR) announced global sustainability targets, including a commitment to shaping a more responsible future through environmental sustainability.

To achieve operational net-zero by 2030, LOR will reduce scope 1 & 2 emissions by at least 75%, with plans focused on reducing energy demand and a transition toward full electrification of operations. With purchased materials accounting for a significant proportion of the company's emissions, achieving net-zero by 2050 will rely on knowledge share, research and engagement with the supply chain, clients, and academic partners to develop new ways to reduce scope 3.
