A prestigious property investment and development company in Birmingham has pledged to become net zero by 2050.
Calthorpe Estates has taken the BPF (British Property Federation) Net Zero Pledge, which sees the business and its portfolio commit to a carbon net zero journey while also sharing knowledge, experiences and learning with other BPF members.
Known for its placemaking in Birmingham, the decision follows Calthorpe Estates’ newly-launched Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) policy, which focuses on robust commitments to the environment, people, and local places – including reducing carbon emissions, improving access to green space and supporting local communities.
Haydn Cooper, CEO of Calthorpe Estates, said: “Our aim is to create exceptional places and this includes a need to focus on sustainability and environmental action. We are delighted to have signed up to BPF’s Net Zero Pledge.
“The commitment follows a robust new ESG policy for Calthorpe Estates, and several projects to help us meet the 2050 goal alongside the BPF. We look forward to sharing our progress with other members, and learning from those on a similar journey.”
Calthorpe Estates is a property investment and development company, creating and developing spaces in Edgbaston to live, work and relax. The premium 1,600-acre Estate managed by the company is home to thriving commercial, medical, leisure, residential, and educational communities.
