The Net Zero Carbon Buildings Commitment

The Net Zero Carbon Buildings Commitment

On June 5th, 2020 Joseph Homes became a signatory of the World Green Building Council (WGBC) Net Zero Building Commitment. This commitment has been on our minds from the very beginning when we set out our Live Well manifesto and we are proud to be one of under 100 worldwide signatories to join the cause. We are committed to ensuring all the buildings we own, occupy and develop will be energy positive by 2025.

Green Building Councils (GBCs) are present in 70 countries around the world and are leading the movement when it comes to building healthier and more sustainable environments. They aim to deliver on the Paris Agreement by eliminating the buildings and construction sector’s emissions by 2050.

“As a certified B-Corp, one of Joseph Homes most important stakeholders is the planet, and we take our mission of building better homes for a better world seriously. We believe that the built environment has the potential to be a big part of the solution to the climate emergency, and we are proud to be working towards this goal.”
