Mott MacDonald becomes first UK consultancy to achieve independent PAS2080 certification

Mott MacDonald has become the first consultancy in the UK to receive PAS2080: Carbon Management in Infrastructure certification. The certification is an assurance of Mott MacDonald’s capacity to apply the requirements of PAS2080 to the design of UK infrastructure projects in the transport, water, energy, communications and waste sectors.

Championed by the Construction Leadership Council and the Green Construction Board, PAS2080 was developed to bring a joined-up approach to the way industry manages whole-life carbon emissions and delivers solutions that reduce costs through lower carbon use.

The rigorous third-party verification recognises the continuous work done by Mott MacDonald and embodied in its endorsement of the 2013 Infrastructure Carbon Review. It recognises the consultancy’s internal and external leadership on carbon reduction, governance of its own process and collaboration with clients to provide ambitious yet practical low-carbon solutions.

Davide Stronati, Mott MacDonald’s global sustainability leader, said: “This certification is a tremendous achievement and acknowledgement of our effort, leadership and expertise in low-carbon solutions. Carbon assessment is now a mandatory part of how we develop options for major UK infrastructure projects. As part of our work in this area, we have created the Carbon Portal, a design optioneering tool linked to building information modelling technology which our teams use to assess carbon in a matter of minutes. We also continue to organise our annual Carbon Crunch conference to share best practice in low carbon journeys and solutions with other infrastructure stakeholders.”

Terry Ellis, global practice leader for carbon management at Mott MacDonald, added: “We are seeing an increasing interest in low carbon solutions from UK clients on their major infrastructure projects. The UK is clearly leading in this field, but recently our global clients in areas including the Middle East, Singapore, Australia and South Africa are also asking for advice on their low carbon journeys."
