Sustainability

Protecting our legacy

Our Promise

Designer Group has thought long and hard as to what we want to be remembered for. We are privileged to be a part of some of the most iconic buildings in the world and are trusted with feats of intricate engineering challenges.

Because of this, we want to tread carefully. We want to work with the environment not against it, ensuring health, safety and sustainability are always at the forefront of everyone’s minds at every stage, of every day. We want to have a maximum impact on protecting the future. This will be our legacy.

Environmental management

We are leading the industry in becoming dramatically more sustainable, working towards low-carbon efficiencies and greener construction.

As a responsible business, we are always finding new ways to reduce the impact of our operations on the environment and society. We have ambitious targets for delivering projects to high environmental standards and we select and use suppliers and materials that contribute to this goal.

Designer Group is committed to:


Using only materials that can be traced to sustainable sources from our reputable and approved supply-chain.

The removal of all single-use plastic – we have a water-fountain on every site to reduce plastic bottle waste.

Phasing out hazardous materials where there are viable alternatives.

Developing and implementing a ‘Zero Carbon’ policy, reducing our environmental impact.

Increasing resource efficiencies, with a view to eliminating waste to landfill.

Increasing our turnover in the renewables sector and BREEAM certified projects.

 

Values

Our values ensure that we deliver better solutions for our clients with integrity and transparency. Many of our projects can last over many years and we are committed to managing the environment not just on our sites, but in the surrounding areas too.

We have a team of environmental professionals that provide insight and support to our projects so that we can deliver exemplary environmental management and meet our clients’ sustainability ambitions.

Renewable sector capabilities

For over a decade Designer Group has helped its clients achieve their vision of a cleaner energy future, through the design and build of ‘Engineer-Procure-Construct’ (EPC) project delivery. Managing all elements of the project from design, through procurement, construction, commissioning, and maintenance.

From wind to solar, biomass to waste-to-energy incineration, Designer Group put innovation first, making significant positive contributions to the world we all live in.

Our long-term vision on sustainability is demonstrated through our work in Africa and the USA, where we are delivering large scale biomass power plants, progressing the Group’s renewable energy and industrial capabilities.
