Our impact

We create amazing places that make a lasting positive contribution to our communities and our planet. Read more about our performance and the changes we are delivering:

Targeting net zero

Recognising that climate change poses a threat to the economy, nature and society at large, we have chosen to take action. We have signed the SME Hub Climate Change Commitment and joined the UN Race to Zero.

These are science-based targets aligned with a 1.5°C scenario and include scope 1, 2 and 3 emissions.

Scope 3 emissions include those generated from fuel and energy-related activities not included in scope 1 and scope 2, water supply and treatment related to Cora’s office and stock plots, upstream transportation and distribution related to groundworks, waste generated in operations, business travel and employee commuting. Additional material contributions will be added to the scope as we progress towards these goals.

*The boundaries of this commitment include all properties under our operational and financial control, reported as scope 1, scope 2 and a portion of scope 3 emissions compared with a FY21 baseline.

Bridging the skills gap

We recognise that our continued success is achieved through the hard work and dedication of our employees. We choose to invest in their development and to play our part to address our industry’s skills shortage.

Waste management

Our industry is inherently demanding of materials, many of which cause environmental and social impacts in their extraction, manufacture and transport. We work hard to segregate waste and ensure as much as possible is diverted from landfill.

ESG governance

Cora’s board oversees the progress of our ESG strategy and the implementation of sustainability and climate-related action throughout the company and our supply chain.

Our 2022 impact report

At Cora, we are determined to lead by example and find more ways to minimise our impact on the environment. It starts with being more transparent about the outcomes we deliver for our customers, our staff, our partners AND our planet.
