H+H UK announces group sustainability strategy

  • 14 Jul 2021

H+H UK Ltd declares its participation in the H+H Group sustainability strategy, committing to achieving net-zero emissions by 2050.

The sustainability strategy by the Danish parent company of H+H UK Ltd comprises a comprehensive sustainability roadmap. This commits all its operations to specific performance targets which are aligned to the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDG).

Perhaps the most significant is the commitment to achieving net-zero emissions in the company’s operations and products by 2050. The target and the plan set out to achieve this goal is expected to be submitted to achieve verification as a ‘science based target’.


In preparing to plan its zero carbon journey, H+H has undertaken a life-cycle analysis (LCA) on its aircrete products in order to provide an accurate benchmark against which to measure progress. 

While on the journey to Net Zero by 2050, the company is also committing to reducing water used by 5% by 2024 and, in the same timescale, to reduce energy consumption per cubic metre by 7%.

Following the model of the UN SDG, H+H has set out four specific focus areas, considering its contribution to…

 – sustainable buildings
 – climate and environmental impact
 – safety and people
 – business integrity

Calum Forsyth, MD, comments: “In the report, H+H Group is setting out its direction for the business into the future.

“We are particularly pleased with the objective rigour on which this report is based. Aligning the Group with UN Goals, and taking a measured, scientific approach to analysing carbon emissions ensures that our results will be robust and demonstrable.”

This overarching strategy is a Group initiative and each country will take its own approach to meet the Group targets. In anticipation of this announcement, H+H UK had established a working group to focus on re-shaping its operation. As each work theme is agreed, H+H UK will be announcing its action plans.
