Duke Austin & Co Pledge for Net Zero Emissions

Duke Austin & Co Ltd announced today that they have become one of the first companies to join the SME
Climate Hub, a new ground-breaking one-stop-shop climate action platform for small and medium-sized
enterprises (SMEs) to curb carbon emissions, build business resilience and take climate leadership.

Duke Austin & Co Ltd has become one of the first signatories to the UN-recognised “SME Climate
Commitment”, which forms part of the SME Climate Hub. In making this commitment, Duke Austin & Co
Ltd has pledged to halve its carbon emissions by 2030, achieve net-zero emissions by 2050 and to regularly
report on progress towards these aims.

On the logic behind the company’s decision to join the initiative, Company Director, William Austin said
“Since moving to our offices at The Observatory, we have been committed to reducing our carbon
footprint. Installing ground heat source heating, by using hybrid and full electric vehicles we have
signalled our corporate intent for over 14 years. We very much welcome this Global Initiative enabling
us to join with the many smaller businesses who wish to ‘do their bit’. Our management is becoming
more supportive of reducing travel by close association with regional partners, and by using modern
communication methods to engage remotely with those with whom we work. Together, we can make a
real difference.”
