Sustainability

 

It is clear that the risks associated with climate change will pose serious challenges to society and our natural world

 

Sustainability has always been a major force in shaping RSHP’s approach to design, and since the practice was founded over four decades ago, social and environmental responsibilities have been enshrined in the practice’s constitution.

Today, climate change poses huge challenges, and we recognise that we cannot address these on our own. We work closely with our clients, partners, and leading industry consultants to design environmentally responsible buildings, public spaces and cities for the future that consider the health and wellbeing of the communities they serve.

As a practice, every project we work on is a direct response to its wider context. We adopt an integrated design approach, benchmark against global standards, and develop innovative, practical solutions for all our projects which minimise their long-term environmental impact; that sustain rather than pollute; that are adaptable rather than replaceable; which set new standards; and that add value over time.

We’re members of the UK Green Building Council, founding signatories of UK’s Architects Declare and are committed to the principles of the RIBA 2030 Climate Challenge.

Our in-house sustainability group raises awareness and shares knowledge across the practice so that we are all working together to bring our business and project carbon emissions down to net zero by 2030.
