Sustainability

Protecting the planet is no longer a choice, but an obligation

In an increasingly environmentally conscious world, we’re all under pressure to realise ambitious eco-friendly commitments – without breaking the bank. It’s a challenge that will endure for generations to come.

In the ever-evolving landscapes of regulation and technology, understanding the wider impact of our work is paramount. Working with a partner that understands these touchpoints releases the pressure valve, providing the confidence needed to meet green commitments to our planet and communities.

Our people are industry leaders in delivering unbeatable environmentally sustainable and socially responsible spaces, and helping clients monitor and dramatically improve their performance and impact.

Whether bringing a sustainable future to a tired office block or delivering a hyperscale datacentre in half the usual time, we operate at every stage of the lifecycle.

With certified spaces from the most advanced and internationally recognised global benchmarks for sustainability like LEED, BREEAM and DGNB, we consistently help clients achieve exceptional results – ensuring everything we do leaves a lasting legacy. With our DGNB certifications in ‘Gold’ and ‘Platinum’ we fulfil the highest level of sustainable spaces, user comfort and use of resources nationwide.

"The aim shouldn't be to minimise damage to the environment, but to ensure that every action we take leaves a net gain to society."

Debbie Hobbs, Group Director for Sustainable Business, ISG

Time for revolutionary change: Aiming for net gain

With the steps we are taking as a business to commit to a sustainable future, we are dedicated to ensuring that we accelerate this change as soon as we can, incorporating Environmental Social Governance (ESG) criteria in all our projects, creating high-quality and sustainable spaces and applying social responsibility in our relationships with our employees, suppliers and contractors and in the communities in which we operate. As a member of the Institute for Corporate Governance (ICG), we also want to actively contribute to positive corporate governance by bringing our ideas of internationality, diversity and transparency. With this ambition, and our stakeholder engagement activities, we are focused on four core areas:

Environmental management | ISG

Environmental management

Our aim is to continue best practice in managing environmental issues, but also ensure we develop a 'net gain' in biodiversity on larger projects and start targeting water reduction at our sites.
Climate change and carbon | ISG

Climate change and carbon

We are committed to achieving net zero carbon emissions by 2030, and introducing an internal carbon tax by 2024 that can be used to fund sustainable innovation projects across our business.
Circular economy | ISG

Circular economy

Our circular economy policy aims to stretch our business, ensuring we develop our own ISG Materials Passport linked to our BIM models for all larger projects, and commits us to reusing materials as much as possible.
Social value | ISG

Social value

We want to go further than just achieving client KPI's. We are committed to achieving a minimum of 25% social value on every project, compared to the contract value, as costed by the Social Value Portal.
