At OAC, being “better” is everything. Finding better outcomes, better processes, and better experiences to deliver our clients the best possible outcome. Which means we’re always striving to improve where people live, work, learn, and play. Sustainable practices are at the core of fulfilling this mission – and now we’re making our most significant impact yet to help build a sustainable future.
We’re excited to announce that OAC has become a signatory of The Climate Pledge. Co-founded by Amazon and Global Optimism, The Climate Pledge is a commitment to net zero carbon by 2040. It forms a cross-sector community of companies and organizations, working together to crack the climate crisis and solve the challenges of decarbonizing our economy.
We’re proud to join The Climate Pledge and the 300+ like-minded companies working together to combat the climate crisis and protect our shared planet. Making this commitment is an important reflection of our passion and purpose for making better happen – for our community, and more importantly, our planet.
Why are we doing this?
Our projects impact more than the people they serve – they impact our planet’s health. That’s why OAC has committed to becoming a carbon neutral company by 2023, and is setting aggressive yet achievable goals to reach this. Committing to The Climate Pledge will only help us create sustained momentum in getting there.
Climate action can’t wait. As innovators and problem-solving experts in the construction industry, we must do our part in reducing or eliminating the greenhouse gas emissions we produce. Both internally, and externally.
How will we get there?
Under The Climate Pledge, OAC is committing to 3 areas of action:
- Measure and report greenhouse gas emissions on a regular basis.
- Implement decarbonization strategies in line with the Paris Agreement through real business changes and innovations, including efficiency improvements, renewable energy, materials reductions, and other carbon emission elimination strategies.
- Neutralize any remaining emissions with additional, quantifiable, real, permanent, and socially beneficial offsets to achieve net zero annual carbon emissions by 2040.
To fight climate change, we need to take bold action. By signing The Climate Pledge, we’ve agreed to do just that. Join us in celebrating this major achievement and follow along on our journey as we make better happen for our communities and planet – together.
