The crisis of climate breakdown and biodiversity loss are two of the most serious issues of our time. Buildings and construction play a major part, accounting for nearly 40% of energy-related carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions whilst also having a significant impact on our natural habitats.
The field of engineering faces a huge challenge as it looks to shift the way we work to continue to meet society’s needs, but in an environmentally friendly way. We are passionate about improving our environmental performance, both within our work and the running of our practice. We are proud of our existing sustainability initiatives but there is much more that can be done to tackle the climate crisis by working together to select sustainably sourced materials, recycle building components, identify the repair and reuse options within existing buildings, and produce low embodied carbon and low energy designs.
We are committing to strengthen our working practices to create engineering outcomes that have more positive impact on the world around us.
