Our overall commitment is to be a trusted employer and partner to create high performing workplaces, with a 30-year history of delivering over £1 billion in contracting work and a focus on building strong relationships with like-minded supply chain partners.
What you need to know about ESG and how we help our clients
Our fundamental objective is to assist our esteemed clients, whether they are occupants or providers, in attaining and preserving a competitive edge through the utilisation, lease, or sale of their workplaces. Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) considerations have rapidly progressed from being a desirable attribute to a crucial aspect for both business and property viability, with shifting legislative mandates, changing contractual obligations, and evolving market expectations driving the ESG movement forward.
To support our clients in realising and sustaining a competitive advantage, we have crafted our services to offer a comprehensive understanding of these pressures and to provide opportunities for growth through our thorough ESG services framework.
We invite you to explore our "ESG Good to Know" booklet, a concise and informative guide to all things ESG. This guide covers the essential ESG certifications, legislation, frameworks, reporting platforms, relevant organizations, and definitions, providing you with a comprehensive understanding of the ESG landscape.
