Securing accreditations with a cost-effective approach
RPS has extensive experience developing sustainability strategies and preparing sustainability statements for significant UK projects across a range of industry sectors.
Our team adopts a holistic and dynamic approach to sustainability recognising that it has many cross-cutting themes which are often borne out in Planning, Design, Commercial, Environmental, Technical and other project choices. Therefore, the sustainability of a project should not be judged in isolation and it is essential that interrelated project decisions are captured through a logical and transparent assessment and reporting mechanism.
Our sustainability team works with other RPS specialists in Planning, EIA, HIA, Transport and other environmental disciplines to enable us to undertake the project sustainability appraisal in a technically consistent manner. We work with wider project teams to agree sustainability options.
