Multiplex Middle East has submitted its commitment letter to the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi).

This initiative is a collaboration between the Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP), United Nations Global Compact (UNGC), World Resources Institute (WRI), World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) and forms one of the commitments of We Mean Business, a global non-profit coalition working with the world's most influential business to take action on climate change.

To achieve the target, Multiplex's energy use and greenhouse gas emissions will be scientifically measured to certify they are in line with the latest climate science threshold.

Multiplex Middle East is the first construction company in the region and the second organization in the UAE to make such a commitment through the Science Based Targets initiative. It is one of 600+ global businesses which have confirmed their commitment to bold action against global warming.

James Grljusich, General Manager for Multiplex Middle East said "The Science-based Targets initiative sets a new standard and corresponds with our goal to align our sustainability management practices with climate science.  Developing a science-based target will not only future-proof our operations against climate change regulations but will also drive efficiencies, strengthen our relationships with key stakeholders and supply chain and support carbon reduction strategies in a region of major construction."
