TPES recognise that we are directly responsible for the office we operate from and indirectly for the environmental impact arising from the construction and operation of the buildings we help to design.
We encourage our staff to consider reducing their own carbon footprint and our Engineers to help our clients develop sustainable designs.
Our staff are encouraged to walk, cycle and use public transport where practical and if not, promote car sharing.
With the operation of buildings accounting for more than 40% of the carbon emissions in the UK it is vital that we use our expertise to encourage sustainable design. As consultants we have the opportunity to influence the development by making sure building projects are sustainable throughout their life-cycle, during its construction, its occupancy and demolition.
We ask clients to consider the impact of their buildings and infrastructure, to reduce their carbon footprint, increase resource efficiency and improve quality of life.
