Sustainable Thinking

As one of the country’s leading environmental consultants and contractors we are acutely aware that the outcomes of our projects and how we work have the potential to deliver a positive impact on the natural environment.

We therefore champion environmentally friendly products, services, approaches, and choices in every aspect of our works. This includes, but is not limited to, the almost exclusive use of renewable energy, the selection of biologically sensitive plant, machinery and fuels, the skilful use of environmental management and measurement equipment through to running a paperless office and the sourcing of local equipment, produce, foods and services in all our offices and on-site where this is logistically possible.

We are committed to reducing our direct carbon footprint and that of our supply chain. This includes being a net generator of energy, combining multiple solar arrays across our built estate with highly efficient biomass heating systems fuelled by our own local native woodland, which is sustainably harvested and managed.

We are continuously challenging the industry norm by making choices to remove and reduce single use plastics in our work and that of our supply chain.

We believe in targeting zero waste to landfill and help achieve that by utilising an extensive recycling programme in our offices and across all our sites, as well as housing our own wormery at our head office (dealing with our group organic and compostable waste).

We are also providing homes for wildlife and insects and are registered beekeepers, working towards a combined apery of 100 hives by 2022.

We are committed to working beyond remediation, prioritising the environment implementing Nature Based Solutions and in the process leaving a positive change on the natural and built environment.
