Our sustainability journey

As we design, construct and refurbish the buildings for tomorrow with our clients across specialist industries, we recognise our shared responsibility to positively impact our environment, peoples’ lives and increase our efforts to build better.

We understand the pressing and responsible need to reduce our carbon footprint and are committed to transparently continuing our journey towards achieving net zero emissions.

A more sustainable construction sector

We are a fast-growing, agile business operating in an ever evolving and challenging industry. We are committed to taking proactive steps to decarbonise our business activities using innovations and technologies.

As the world grapples with the challenges of climate change and resource depletion, we will focus our efforts on reducing our environmental impact to build a greener future.

We're proud to hold sustainability as a guiding principle in everything we do, with a commitment to green building credentials, renewable energy, circular economy principles, and more.

Our sustainability approach

Our internal teams are working with external expert partners, conducting a thorough review of our emission sources. We are working together on a pragmatic and practical net zero strategy with a comprehensive plan that sets ambitious, but achievable, targets to reduce our Scope 1, Scope 2, and Scope 3 emissions.

Education, innovation and coaching our teams on working sustainably are at the heart of Sweet Projects’ sustainability objectives – ensuring our colleagues and partners understand how and why sustainable practices are the right thing for us to do.

Our objective is to work at the forefront of sustainable construction practices, innovative technologies, materials, and construction methods, with the aim of making the buildings we work on more energy-efficient and environmentally friendly.

Across our projects, we advocate sustainable options at both the design and construction phases, consistently reviewing the use of clean energy and low carbon resources and promoting a circular economy.

Our actions support our local communities and will work towards improving our environment by contributing towards biodiversity gain.
