environmental & social
We influence business decisions early in design by managing project induced environmental & social risk in a positive way.
As the world moves towards a lower-carbon circular economy, energy companies are under increasing pressure to transition towards sustainable energy sources through the reuse, repair and recycling of materials to reduce the consumption of finite resources and minimise waste. Environmental and Social Performance (E&S) is critical in this transition, as it helps our clients demonstrate their commitment to sustainability by addressing potential impacts of their operations on the environment and local communities throughout design. Raising awareness of environmental and social risks early in design support business decisions towards a more sustainable solution moving forward.
