Our Environmental Commitment – 30% reduction of carbon emissions by 2030
At Comfortech®, we are committed to the New Zealand environment and as part of Fletcher Building, a leading building products, construction, and distribution business we take our environmental responsibility seriously. We understand the need to address carbon emissions and mitigate the impacts of climate change.
Fletcher Building was the first in our industry in Australasia to set a Science-Based Target (SBT) for carbon reduction and is on track to meet this target of reducing our combined Scope 1 and 2 emissions by 30% by 2030. Emissions for FY22 were 1.1 million tCO2e which is a 12% reduction from our baseline year of FY18.
Better houses, products, and infrastructure
Over the past two years, there has been a clear focus on offering products with sustainability certifications to customers, playing our part to decarbonise the building sector and supporting our customers’ own sustainability goals. These products are featured in the LowCO house and across other construction projects.
