Net zero carbon in operations

by 2035

Collaboration and teamwork are embedded into R G Carter's culture and their hundred-year history of construction expertise.

They believe building open, honest partnerships with clients and the communities in which they work helps to create better buildings and better opportunities for everyone, whilst also making them great people to do business with.

Working across Cambridge, Norfolk, Peterborough and Suffolk via our Regional Construction framework, R G Carter provide design, engineering, construction, and project management services across a variety of sectors including education, health, defence, R&D, commercial, retail, industrial and housing. They are also one of the largest Passivhaus housebuilders in the UK.

Sustainability has for many decades been at the heart of everything they do, and their teams continue to work hard to create, revitalise and renew the very best places and spaces for the benefit of future generations.

Climate change is the responsibility of us all and they recognise their own continued role in decarbonising the built environment. Working with their stakeholders, supply chain and employees, they believe they can help make a difference and have therefore set out their carbon reduction roadmap to achieve net zero in their operations (Scope 1 and 2 emissions) by 2035.

As a family business, leaving a positive legacy in their communities is at the heart of what they do. Social value has enabled them to demonstrate their long-term passion and commitment for engaging with the local community, as they continue to facilitate social mobility, encourage local employment and create a sustainable environment for all.

Their values define their friendly culture, where people and teamwork are key to their success; great people make great projects. They invest in all their employees, encouraging loyalty and a sense of pride, and always strive for excellence in all that they deliver.
