We need resilient, net zero cities

Resilience of places and people must be strengthened as we eliminate emissions from the ways we live and work.

The transition to clean energy is underway

But we need to move faster. Replacing fossil fuels with zero carbon and low emission alternatives is an urgent priority for all economies and sectors.

We're acting now

Nature already has the answers

We just need to listen. Nature-based solutions are affordable and scalable; they have a powerful role to play in decarbonising the built environment.

Transport can pioneer decarbonisation

We need to adopt a system-wide, multi-modal approach that leads to zero-emission transport options for all.

Arup’s journey to net zero

It’s imperative that businesses with a public sustainability focus practice what they preach. So we’re being fully transparent about every action required for us to hit our 2030 net zero target.

After a full internal review of our business processes, we determined that a 30% reduction in emissions was required for us to hit net zero.

Our strategy is grounded by science-based goals for full-value chain emissions, while we compensate hard-to-decarbonise emissions with certified greenhouse gas removal.
