UN Race To Zero

WSH joins the Race To Zero

We are delighted to announce our parent company, Westbury Street Holdings (WSH) has signed a landmark pledge, committing to the Business Ambition for 1.5°C, which will see us joining the UN Race to Zero, setting a science-based net-zero target, making a critical contribution to limiting the impacts of climate change.

Director of Sustainable Business across WSH, Mike Hanson, will be leading our commitment to setting a science-based target in line with the Paris Agreement to reach global net-zero emissions by 2050 in order to limit global warming to 1.5°C.

Mike Hanson said: “In the year of COP26, and on World Environment Day, our commitment to setting a SBT is an important milestone. We have committed to the highest level of ambition in the short and long-term. I am also delighted to announce that we have formally joined the Zero Carbon Forum, a collaborative programme across the hospitality industry, to deliver a roadmap to net-zero.”

Passionate about building a more sustainable future, WSH achieved ISO 14001 certification for its environmental management system in 2007 at the same time as Carbon Neutral Company status; the business held this certification for 10 years before committing to 100% renewable electricity in 2018 alongside Carbon Neutral Fleet and Business Travel.  Our award-winning food waste management programme ‘Food Waste Costing the Earth’ has saved over 61,000 tonnes of CO2e since 2014.
