John F Hunt put time and effort into research and development, to life-cycle thinking, and embed sustainability into our work plans, methodologies and procurement strategies, to achieve a balance between environmental, technological, economic and social objectives.

efficiency and innovation

Efficient use of resources to promote a circular economy and close monitoring of energy, air quality, water usage, emissions and carbon levels is carried out throughout all projects and businesses within the John F Hunt Group nationwide.

Our goal is to achieve zero carbon by 2050, through developing more efficient technologies, recycling and waste minimalization, monitored through the use of our digital SMARTWaste tool. We maximise secondary material use, lessening the demand on primary resources, so producing an increase in efficiency and improving project costs.

Innovation is essential for the positive development of our business and the protection of our surroundings by creating maintainable solutions, our aim being to encourage resolutions that balance economic, environmental and social issues. This also creates added value for our clients, employees, subcontractors and the community in which we work.

Our Targets

As part of our ambitions to become carbon neutral, we have set the below minimum targets, which will assist in achieving the UK’s Net Zero targets

  • Halve our greenhouse gas emissions before 2030
  • Achieve net zero emissions before 2050
  • Disclose our progress on a yearly basis

28.3% reduction in emissions in the past year

Carbon Saving

All ‘waste’ material from John F Hunt project sites across the UK, qualifies for carbon savings when it is reused, repurposed, or recycled.

It doesn’t really matter if the material is second hand or not, simply that it arises as waste from the project it was purchased for.

Examples of John F Hunt’s carbon saving measures

Waste diverted from landfill

Circular Economy

In the UK, construction, demolition and excavation account for 60% of material waste generation, therefore, it has been John F Hunt’s mission to transition to a Circular Economy where as many items as possible are reused.

We partnered with Globechain, to help us increase our material re-use rate whilst making a positive impact on charities and small and medium-sized enterprises (SME’s) in the process.

Social Engagement

Our aim is to support the local communities and businesses that we come into contact with through our work, to engage with local employment and supply chains to maximise their involvement in our projects. Although our physical presence on site is often short, we try to identify residents needs and help them achieve their community goals.

Through our workforce we endeavour to set people on good career paths through the provision of training, work experience, graduate courses and apprenticeships, helping break through personal barriers to lead to better life chances.
