We're committed to creating places that protect natural resources and encourage physical and mental wellbeing
Our approach to sustainability revolves around minimising our environmental impact and amplifying the positive impact that we make on the world by leveraging our people, our products, and our expertise.
Industry impact and why working sustainably matters
The three pillars of sustainability
Our approach to sustainability involves us looking at three factors
that together create a guiding light to a better future and align with UN sustainable development goals.
The impact our organisation has on the natural environment considering factors such as carbon footprint, management of waste, usage of resources, impact on air quality and biodiversity.
The impact our organisation has on employees, clients, suppliers and communities considering health, well-being, social value, diversity and inclusion.
The impact our organisation has on economic value, creating employment, generating innovation and continuing to drive a thriving business.
Our sustainability strategy
We’re focussing on 4 key areas
Waste and resource efficiency
In 2022 we’ll be taking steps to measure our carbon footprint. By doing this we aim to understand where we can minimise our impact. We commit to publishing our findings and our plan to reduce our direct and indirect emissions to meet the government’s goal to reach net zero by 2050.
Setting targets is an important part of our sustainability strategy and ensures we remain accountable to our goals. We monitor key performance indicators throughout our projects to report on progress and drive continual improvement.
