Raising the bar


As we work towards our 'must get' position (net zero) and beyond to our 'want to get' position (carbon positive) the office sector needs to increase its ambition and urgency. Accordingly, we have increased the targets that we help signatories move towards. CitySwitch’s vision of best practice is that office-based businesses:

  • commit to switching to 100% renewable energy by 2021
  • commit to achieving a 5-star NABERS energy rating (with Green Power)
  • make a plan by 2021 to achieve net zero before 2050

We know many existing signatories have developed new strategies and goals since joining, and we’re asking everyone to update us on their commitments.

New options in the ‘Manage My Info’ section of the login portal will allow you to let us know wherever you are at with these refreshed targets.

As always, your CitySwitch Program Manager is here to help, so if you have any questions regarding the new targets or logging into the portal to update yours please get in touch. Even if you’re at the beginning of moving your targets to best-practice, the commitments refresh can be a catalyst for getting support and starting the process of developing a plan.

Importantly, it also lets us advocate and demonstrate the growing demand for more energy efficiency, renewables, wellness and carbon positive places and services.
