GLP, investor and developer of logistics warehouses and distribution parks, today announces that it has delivered the first net zero carbon development to be officially verified as Net Zero carbon for construction in line with the UKGBC Net Zero Carbon Buildings Framework Definition.
The development, known as Magnitude 313, was developed at GLP’s flagship logistics park Magna Park Milton Keynes. It is GLP’s 6th building to go through the Planet Mark accreditation scheme and part of its strategy to reduce the carbon footprint further.
GLP is committed to achieving continual improvement not only in terms of how efficiently it constructs buildings but in the specifications it sets out and the materials used. However, on the development of Magnitude the project team went a stage further to undertake more detailed, deeper assessments of the build in order to maximise the efficiency and sustainability credentials of the materials, resulting in significantly lower levels of embodied carbon.
