4th February 2022
Wernick Carbon Zero 2040

We are proud to announce we will be implementing a strategy to become a carbon net-zero company by 2040.

At Wernick we understand that climate change is an urgent global crisis. Working to a clear roadmap set out within a detailed carbon management plan, we are developing ambitious policies to reduce our carbon footprint and make our products and services as sustainable as possible.

Our commitment goes beyond just complying with our legal requirements – it is being embedded in everything we do as one of our core company values, as laid out in ‘The Wernick Way’.

To ensure the company will achieve net-zero by 2040, milestones and key objectives have been identified. Some of these include:

  • All gas central heating in offices to be changed to a low emission alternative by 2024
  • All new build offices to be energy positive A+ EPC rated by 2024
  • All new company vehicles to be hybrid or fully electric by 2025

Group Chief Executive Officer, Jonathan Wernick commented, “The challenges being presented by climate change should not be underestimated and it is essential for all companies and individuals to act now to play their part in reducing global emissions. The Wernick Group Carbon Management Plan clearly sets out the steps we are going to take to reduce our emissions in the years between now and achieving net-zero by 2040. This is the beginning of a challenging but exciting journey and marks the next chapter in the Wernick Group’s almost 90 year history.”
