OUR COMMITMENT TO A SUSTAINABLE FUTURE
Cushman & Wakefield is taking bold action to protect and promote sustainable value. Our sustainability strategy commits to tangible sustainability goals across the following three focus areas: we drive net zero, we accelerate progress, and we create positive places.
We recognize that the services we deliver for our clients directly impact the world, which is why we strive to make sustainability core to everything we do.
Cushman & Wakefield has had our emissions reduction targets and net zero commitment approved by the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi) External Link as consistent with levels required to meet the goals of the Paris Agreement.
Our Science Based Targets and Net Zero Commitment
- Target #1: Reduce greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) across our corporate offices and operations 50% by 2030 (from a 2019 base year).
- Target #2: Engage our key clients, representing 70% of all emissions at our managed properties, to set their own science based targets by 2025.
- Target #3: Reach net zero value chain emissions (scopes 1, 2 and 3) by 2050.
