sustainability and us
Our approach is to bring sustainability into all aspects of our work - from being a Green Office to carrying out Green Projects.
Key aspects of being a green business include:
Electricity supplied by Ecotricity.
Actively recycling wherever possible.
Supporting the local economy by buying local - we are members of Bristol Pound.
Unless cars are needed for site visits, we all get to work through pedal power.
We are active members of the Backfields Lane GreenStreet initiative.
All our projects are tested against key criteria and we seek to find opportunities in:
use of energy
recycled materials and recyclabilty
reduction of site waste
Projects with green credentials include:
Eco demonstration and training hub for Solarsense - this is a demonstrator project for renewable technologies.
Sustainable retrofit -'light touch' retrofit projects such as for Emmaus, where sustainability is inherent in the re-use of existing resources.
