OUR JOURNEY TO NET ZERO
Velta is passionate about using resources sustainably – maximising recycling rates, protecting the environment and reducing the carbon we produce.
Using innovation, technology, and collaborative partnerships, we manage our energy consumption, waste, and the carbon impact of the construction materials and machinery we use.
Our net zero journey is set out in our Sustainability Roadmap. It outlines our targets and milestones to achieve net zero carbon emissions by 2050.
BUILDING TODAY FOR TOMORROW
NET ZERO CARBON EMISSIONS BY 2050
Velta uses sustainable and locally sourced materials, reducing transport-related emissions. We build partnerships with suppliers and manufacturers that share our commitment to eco-friendly practices and the adoption of low-carbon alternatives. By advocating sustainable material choices, Velta contributes to a greener construction sector.
We use renewable energy sources including solar panels to power our sites, reducing reliance on fossil fuels. Our energy-efficient machinery and automated systems, optimise our energy consumption throughout the construction process – not only minimising our carbon emissions but also improving operational efficiency, resulting in cost savings and enhanced project timelines for our clients.
SAFEGUARDING THE ENVIRONMENT
Velta has implemented a range of measures to safeguard the environment and minimise our ecological impact. We conduct thorough environmental impact assessments before commencing any project, ensuring the preservation of natural habitats and the mitigation of potential risks. We actively promote biodiversity conservation by incorporating green spaces, sustainable landscaping, and the preservation of existing flora and fauna into our construction projects. Additionally, Velta takes proactive steps to minimise pollution by adopting effective waste management practices, reducing water consumption, and utilising environmentally friendly construction materials.
SUPPORTING THE CIRCULAR ECONOMY
Velta champions a circular economy model by reducing waste, recycling, and upcycling. Construction waste, a significant contributor to carbon emissions, is carefully managed through our efficient sorting and recycling processes. We actively seek opportunities to repurpose materials, diverting them from landfills and minimising the need for virgin resources. Through collaboration with local communities and waste management organisations, Velta has forged partnerships that facilitate responsible waste disposal and support the circular economy principles.
