The NJL team met up with POW UK at this year's PropSki event in Chamonix and have now signed up to the POW Pledge, committing to be net zero as soon as practicably possible, targeting building, fuel and employee habit changes as being key to meeting this ambitious target.

POW UK help passionate outdoor people become effective climate advocates to achieve systemic solutions to climate change, protecting our world today and for future generations. 

The POW Pledge is a science led and action focused programme delivered by POW UK that guides businesses through 8 steps to reduce their emissions. Their toolkit provides a climate action framework and recognises those setting strong Net Zero targets, developing each business a bespoke roadmap that is both ambitious and achievable.

NJL already work with many clients on new development projects where seeking to achieve net zero or reducing carbon use is part of their overall longer term target.

The NJL team work on many significant projects in the UK, advising on over 10,000 residential units, 8 million sq.ft of logistics space, and major urban regeneration projects alongside major developers such as Peel, Caddick, Tritax, Bloor, Northstone, Story, UKLP, Trafford Housing Trust, Vistry, Miller Homes.

Ongoing projects already in the pipeline, including signature office schemes and regional scale logistics are aiming for BREEAM Excellent and/or net zero targets in the coming years, and NJL are agenda setting with their clients on such targets on a day-to-day basis. Emerging housing schemes they are working on are targeting Future Homes 25 (being 80% towards net zero by 2025); ongoing expansion of MediaCityUK will be putting net zero targets at the front of the agenda having already achieved operational net zero emissions on some buildings, and more of NJL’s clients are taking forward major carbon reduction or net zero commitments in the coming months.

Nick Lee
, has been keen to align with a charitable organisation linked to promoting and achieving zero carbon objectives and sees POW UK as a perfect fit. “We share the same passion for the outdoors and the mountains within the NJL Team and have seen how climate has rapidly affected that environment over the years. This was exemplified at PropSki recently with glacier retreat being starkly exampled in Chamonix. We have seen the remarkable rise of the net zero agenda in property between pre and post-covid times and we firmly believe we should be helping lead the agenda alongside clients who are making strong zero carbon commitments. Our smaller scale as a business means we can change many of our operational processes early on and hence we believe we can meet our ambitious target.”

The NJL team will be working with POW UK on the implementation of their POW Pledge over the coming months but will also be working with their clients on achieving wider net zero objectives on an ongoing basis and promoting the POW UK brand and message.

Dom Winter, Programme Manager at POW UK welcomes the partnership, “It is fantastic that NJL have recognised the interests of their staff and the alignment of these with their business responsibilities and charitable objectives. We are excited to start working with a team who are as enthusiastic about the outdoors as they are about ensuring their business takes action against the climate emergency. It’s time for all businesses to help protect the environment they depend on. This is the change we need.”

Will Chambers of PropSki said, “PropSki has always aimed to provide an inclusive, affordable, accessible environment for the property industry to meet and network. We are thrilled that this extends beyond business contacts and that PropSki provided the opportunity for a partnership with enduring impact between POW UK and NJL Consulting to develop. Due to Covid-19 and changing French regulations the January event was left in doubt until just a few days beforehand but we managed to proceed with 70% of planned attendees and still raised over £21,000 to split between our charity partners.”
