Cushman & Wakefield Commits to Reducing Greenhouse Gases Across Its Value Chain

Cushman & Wakefield on Thursday announced science-based targets to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions that are approved by the Science Based Targets initiative. In addition, by signing up to the Business Ambition for 1.5ºC campaign, Cushman & Wakefield pledges to reach net zero emissions across its entire value chain by 2050. 

The Chicago-based services firm says its science-based targets will not only reduce absolute GHG emissions from its corporate operations but will also include the facilities it manages on behalf of its clients, which include some of the world’s largest real estate owners and occupiers. 

“With buildings generating a significant portion of the world’s carbon emissions, we recognize Cushman & Wakefield plays a vital role in shaping a sustainable future for the real estate industry and beyond,” said Brett White, executive chairman and CEO of Cushman & Wakefield.
