Build a sustainable future for your business with our sustainability consulting services

At Sustain Quality, we provide innovative and forward-thinking solutions to construction companies, architects, and contractors that focus on environmental, social and corporate governance (ESG) strategy for organisations.

We help our clients work towards a net-zero service balanced with global sustainable goals, in a way that is tailored to their business and the industry they work in.

What is ESG?

ESG refers to the consideration of environmental, social and governance factors–alongside typical financial factors–in investment decision-making processes.

This is an increasingly popular way of making decisions that is gaining traction especially in the construction and architectural industries.

As a result, many investors are looking to incorporate ESG into their future portfolio decisions.

The Sustain Quality route to ESG

We understand that zero/low carbon strategy for organisations requires much more than just consideration of the building design and construction technology. At Sustain Quality, we help your business to adopt a comprehensive approach that includes the perspectives of the end users and occupants of a building.

Three Sustain Quality steps towards ESG

Together, we can plan and execute a sustainability strategy that can be measured and continually improved so that your business is always ahead of the curve.

We work with you to meet UK and European legislation to reduce carbon emissions and ESG to get you on the net zero pathway.

The Survey

In the survey, we take time to fully understand your business processes and assess your current Environmental, Social, and Corporate Governance (ESG) footprint.

We figure out what’s important for your business and what ESG means to you, along with reviewing your existing policies and actions related to these important issues. We’ll then be able to come up with a strong plan to help you embed ESG considerations into your business.

The Action Plan

After assessing your current situation and coming up with an action plan to embed ESG into the very heart of your business, we’ll provide support on delivering your plan in two stages:

The Eco Audit
A tailor-made assessment that will introduce beneficial ESG strategies into your business plan, while highlighting opportunities for education and engagement within your organisation for a sustainable culture.

This stage may include Carbon Counting, Life Cycle Assessment, Environmental Policy, Energy Feasibility Studies, Workshops and more.

Third Party Certification
This is a type of assessment based on third-party certification schemes such as BREEAM In-use, Reset Air, Fitwell, EMS/ISO Accreditation, GRESB, WELL building, Certified B Corporation.

Continuous improvement

Making sustainability a core aspect of your business doesn’t happen overnight, it needs to be embedded into every level to ensure success.

We’ll help you to review and challenge your business model to ensure it’s working effectively.

Keep the sustainability conversation going with your employees, measure your net zero campaign’s impact and ask for feedback so you can see where you need to go next.

ESG investing and the United Nations’ Sustainable Goals

More companies and individuals are placing importance on ESG performance in business which aligns with the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) set out in the UN’s 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. (Appendix A).

Within these goals, the UN has recognised that ending poverty and deprivation must come hand-in-hand with other strategies that improve health, education, inequality, climate preservation and economic growth.
