CCC is committed to taking on its share of
responsibility in terms of reducing global
greenhouse gas emissions so that global
warming can be limited to the international
standard of 2 °C (3.6 °F). This will also help the
countries within which we operate to achieve
their targets and uphold their commitment
towards the 2015 Paris Climate Agreement under
the United Nations Framework Convention on
Climate Change. Accordingly, we developed a
Camp Sustainability Manual (for more details
refer to page 0) to identify sustainable options
on CCC’s projects, offices and camps. This manual
contains numerous sustainability initiatives
that help us use energy and water as efficiently
as possible as well as reduce our carbon and
water footprint. In 2015, we also launched a CCC
Sustainability Awareness Campaign to increase
awareness among our employees as well as save
on water and electricity consumption.
We strive to continuously improve our
operational efficiency and environmental
performance.
The projects highlighted below have demonstrated
outstanding percentage of GHG emissions reduction
in 2015 by implementing numerous emission
reduction initiatives and using renewable energy:

Greenhouse Gas Emissions
Direct carbon emissions (Scope 1) are being
measured since 2012 whilst indirect carbon
emissions were included from 2014 onwards. Due
to the nature of our business in the construction
sector, we stay flexible regarding the number
of offices and projects that are featured in the
sustainability report. We report our carbon
intensity based on the man hours worked.
We base our carbon footprint accounting
on the Greenhouse Gas Protocol (GHGP).
This is a corporate accounting and
reporting standard for the carbon footprint
inventory.
