Environmental Sustainability

The costs of running a land or building asset in environmental terms may be reduced by the decisions that are made in the construction or improvement phase of a project.

Running the building or land also provides major opportunities to manage an asset in a more environmentally sustainable way.

This will always require education and awareness work with all users of land and buildings, preferably towards agreed targets that can be monitored and results fed back if there is still room for improvement. Better environmental practice can also include any supply chains to a building or landscape so that more sustainable (and sometimes ethical) supplies can be used to reduce environmental impact.
