There is no doubt that the climate crisis is the challenge of our time that underpins all others. At Ingleton Wood we use our technical skills to tackle both our internal carbon footprint and the external advice that we give to our clients.
Our internal goal is to reach net zero emissions by 2030. Through externally validated work on our Carbon footprint and ESOS assessment we are developing a science based, evidence backed strategy to get us there; in our position as industry leaders we must make sure we are not making unsubstantiated statements or claims, nor using offsetting to greenwash our own figures.
Our external goal for the next 5 years is to continue to develop a Value For Money (VFM) sustainability offering that meets the needs of our public and private sector clients. We know we can use our multidisciplinary approach to great effect here, making sure our advice is practical and financially viable, as well as meeting the sustainability requirements of our customers.
We are following the development of the Net Zero Carbon Building Standard with interest, as well as the performance targets stated in the RIBA 2030 Climate Challenge, and the work of other cutting edge organisations such as LETI. We will continue to be actively involved in relevant organisations such as CIBSE, RICS, and RIBA as well as working cooperatively with clients and local stakeholders such as Local Councils, Academy Trusts and NHS organisations.
Ultimately we believe in the widest definition of sustainability, following the 1987 UN Brundtland Commission statement that “Sustainable Development is development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs”.
