In 2019 we made the positive commitment to being a Net Zero Carbon business. Our internal ‘Green Team’ do a fantastic job of continually challenging our energy and waste reduction targets and are well established in monitoring and offsetting the impact our business has on our planet.
At Threesixty we also have the responsibility, through the design work we do, to support the delivery of environmentally conscious buildings and places. Our Green Team has expanded to develop the skill, knowledge, and experience of ‘sustainable design’ and ensure our practice is one that puts conscious environmental design at the fore of every project. In addition, our commitment to being a B Corporation accredited business legally ensures that we do everything we can to minimise the negative impact our designs have on the environment.
We have a defined and compelling strategy to train our staff in the matters of Sustainable Design. It is a wide-ranging topic with many design influencing factors. Our Architects are leading and training on subjects such as Carbon in Construction, Passivhaus, Social Sustainability, Retrofit First, Circular Economy and keeping up to date with ever developing Policy and Legislation.
We are now applying this knowledge to our projects, developing strong connections with Consultants who share our ESG values, and working closely with our Clients to support them in achieving their sustainability targets. This includes delivering our first RIBA 2030 Challenge building, designing a series of projects targeting net zero operation standards, and supporting Scottish Enterprise and Construction Scotland Innovation Centre on Sustainability led research projects.
Designing sustainably is an essential practice for all. We’re always happy to share our knowledge and expertise, so please do get in touch if there is anything you would like to discuss.
