Sustainability means maintaining the earth’s limited resources and environmental systems while creating and sustaining quality of life for everyone, everywhere now and in the future. In other words, we need to use resources in responsible and resilient infrastructure, with financial stability to support strong communities both globally and locally, for generations to come.
FSD’s most tangible way of contributing to a sustainable society is by addressing sustainability aspects in the projects we deliver.
Our supply chain is regularly reviewing alternative sources of supply that have a positive impact on the environment, and we strive to use as much sustainable product as we possibly can within the current market restraints.
Among the aspects that we consider in our designs and services, are the following key areas:
- embodied carbon and efficiency in energy use;
- materials use and efficient waste management;
- impacts on the local and wider environment;
- the effects of climate change;
- the overall lifetime cost of a project; and
- improving the resilience.
In living up to these principles in our project delivery and project management, we will increase the resilience of built infrastructure.
FSD are Members of The Chartered Institution of Wastes Management (CIWM). This is the professional body which represents over 7,000 waste professionals working in the sustainable resources and wastes management sectors.
We utilise The Supply Chain Sustainability School to help us develop and improve sustainability competence in the supply chain.
