What is sustainability?

Sustainability can be defined as meeting the needs of today without compromising the needs of future generations. Sustainability is about organisations adopting a balance of Social, Environmental and Economic objectives and goals.

Sustainable Construction

The UK construction industry is changing. Following the lead of the wider CSR-focussed business community, Clients, Architects, Engineers and Contractors alike, are now totally focused on sustainable construction. In 2005 the UK Government set out its goals for sustainable development in its UK Sustainable Development Strategy. Later in June 2008, in association with the Strategic Forum for Construction, the UK Government published The Strategy for Sustainable Construction. The strategy states that by 2012, 25% of all construction products used in UK Government construction projects should be responsibly sourced. This balance of governmental and market pressure is emanating through the UK construction industry supply chain. Clients are increasingly required to demonstrate the environmental performance of buildings and structures to their stakeholders through assessment frameworks such as BREEAM, LEAD and CEEQUAL. These assessment methodologies can also require manufacturers and suppliers to demonstrate the sustainability performance of their products and services through certification schemes such as FSA, BES6001 and the UK CARES Sustainable Reinforcing Scheme.
