In April 2020, Jacobs released its Climate Action Plan, detailing our aim to achieve and maintain 100% renewable energy, net zero carbon for the company’s operations and business travel in 2020 and carbon negative for its operations and business travel by 2030. We look forward to supporting BGCP and the City in achieving their carbon neutrality goals.”

“We welcome Jacobs’ decision to become a supporting member of Bristol Green Capital Partnership. This is a challenging time for all organisations working on social and environmental issues in Bristol and we hope that other locally-based businesses will take similar steps to support the local environmental and social ecosystem if they have the resources to do so.”
