To effectively tackle climate change, which has led to an increase in changeable weather events, we must collectively minimise our impact on the environment by adopting effective sustainable practices. To achieve this, we have implemented the following strategies across our organisation, including:
We are committed to achieve Net Zero by 2030, in line with the UK Government’s Net Zero Strategy. We will achieve this through the implementation and delivery of measurable commitments to reduce our scope 1, 2 and 3 emissions.
Our approach is underpinned by our robust Environmental Management System (EMS). This has been designed in accordance with the best practice standards of ISO14001 and guidance from Building Research Establishment Environmental Assessment Method (BREEAM).
To minimise our environmental impact, our Carbon Reduction Plan outlines our commitment to comprehensively reduce and minimise:
Drawing on our EMS, we maximise sustainable practices throughout each stage of our delivery programme through the following strategies:
To reduce demand for resources and minimise accumulating waste, we adopt Circular Economy principles and design out waste. We select supplies with long lifecycles that are highly durable and can be repaired, upgraded, reused and recycled.
To minimise the impact on our environment through our supply chain we maintain stringent sustainable procurement practices: This ensures that all supplies are manufactured and delivered sustainability in accordance with BREEAM guidance and ISO14001 standards.
Providing a positive workspace for our clients, we adopt the WELL Standard throughout our design and delivery model. We maximise health, wellbeing, connectivity and mindfulness through our design choices. Our strategies include maximising natural light and accessibility and facilitating a comfortable temperature and environment.
