As leaders in the built environment profession, we understand the vital need to step forward with solutions to the growing global climate crisis.
We have reshaped our own business to meet these new demands. Our NewLeaf programme is a new long-term commitment to practical action rather than words, to ensure our organisation across the whole global value chain reaches net zero by 2030.
We are investing in and adopting green technologies and behaviours – working with our industry to create a greener and more sustainable world.
We are now helping our clients to understand and meet their own low carbon ambitions. by supporting our clients to create new business cases for investment to meet the challenging net-zero emission targets.
It means taking our clients beyond carbon neutrality and offsetting, to rethink strategies that underpin sustainable communities and improve the lives of the most vulnerable.
