"This is a story of our changing planet, and what we can do to help it thrive…” David Attenborough
For years it has been permissible to minimise negative environmental impacts. Frankly, this is not good enough, we believe every intervention humans make in the landscape should be regenerative. With our expertise and commitment we can help ensure this is true for you.
Environmental Management Plus - ISO 14001
ISO 14001 Environmental Management Systems (EMS) is a terrific standard, and many, many organisations are certified under it. Yet very few use it to its potential. We can help you squeeze more from your EMS by truly incorporating 'a lifecycle perspective' and responding to changing 'environmental conditions in balance with socio-economic needs'.
More than just a buzzword, the circular economy represents a paradigm shift;
- from the 'take, make, dispose' model and its environmental degradation;
- to a model where 'waste' does not exist, and the economy resembles a perpetual motion machine requiring nothing but sun light.
Work with us to understand the implications of the circular value chain, industrial symbiosis, increased durability, product personalisation, lifecycle ownership, dematerialisation and sharing for your business.
There are few places on earth without a compelling and unique human history, a history that belongs to and defines all of us. Work with us to ensure these stories are articulated, interpreted and enhanced within your project and organisation to create an empowering sense of place and identity for locals and visitors alike.
Planning & Liveability
Communities are often disappointed with their experience of growth. With our knowledge of sustainability and the planning system we can help create cities with happier more productive inhabitants. Ensuring safe, attractive, socially cohesive, inclusive, and sustainable cities that feature affordable & diverse housing, convenient public and active transport to destinations, and the ubiquitous presence of nature.
Ecological Value Creation
The good thing about humans having made such a mess, is that opportunities to enhance degraded places are everywhere. Work with our ecological experts to create and enhance natural places and features on your next project and reap the ecological service benefits that come with it (aesthetics, habitat, clean air, fresh water, productive soil, pollination, carbon sequestration, reduced temperatures and happier people).
