We have a clear and focused strategy to drive operational excellence across our businesses.

At BME we understand that Climate Change is one of the great challenges of our age. With the built environment a major contributor to global energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions, we understand that we have a vital role to play in creating a more sustainable future. We are an enabler of Europe’s transition to a more sustainable way of building.

Sustainability is at the heart of what we do, from how we manage our business, to how we work with our customers and suppliers.

Our approach to sustainability is rooted in three core areas and underpinned by clear objectives:

Reducing emissions

We are targeting:

  • Net-zero emissions in controlled operations by 2040
  • Achieving 100% renewable energy use in controlled operations
  • Continual reductions in energy consumption

Managing waste

We are targeting:

  • Zero waste in controlled operations by 2040
  • Reducing waste and increasing recycling throughout the value chain

Providing sustainable products and services
