Winstone Wallboards is developing a carbon reduction plan to help tackle one of the greatest challenges of our time - climate change.

Dubbed ‘30 by 30’, the company vows to deliver a 30 percent carbon reduction by 2030, in line with Fletcher Building, who as a group have committed to reduce emissions 30 percent by 2030 from a 2018 base year.

The move highlights Winstone Wallboards’ resolve to play its part in helping to create a sustainable future, not just for the business itself, but for all New Zealanders.

That includes helping to keep climate change below 2°C, which is what the latest climate science believes is necessary to meet the goals of the Paris Agreement. More specifically, we need to limit global warming to well below 2°C above pre- industrial levels, and pursue efforts to limit warming to 1.5°C.

These science-based targets provide companies with a clearly defined pathway to future-proof growth by specifying how much and how quickly they need to reduce their greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.

Winstone Wallboards’ Sustainability strategy focuses on what is most important to the business and to others - people, communities, and customers - and where actions will lead to meaningful change. Importantly the strategy extends on what the organisation has already put in place and deepens its commitment to people, sustainable products and carbon emission reduction.

Winstone Wallboards (GIB) is a proud sponsor of Design Experience Series 2020.
