Our Work

We help businesses and public bodies create better places and improve the way they work. We apply our expertise in a highly practical way because we want our work to inspire people to live happy, healthy lives with the natural limits of the planet.



Work With Us

picto-place

Sustainable Places

We generate practical and deliverable ideas for sustainable places, and work in partnership to make them happen. We have 20 years’ track record in delivering solutions for better housing, neighbourhoods, and local amenities, working with developers, housing associations and local authorities in a community- and commercially-minded  way.

Sustainability Action Plans

We work in partnership with companies and the public sector to co-create sustainability action plans using our One Planet Living framework. An action plan helps to establish a vision for sustainability and identifies practical steps to realise this vision through a series of short and longer term actions and targets.

Products & Circular Economy

We advise the home retail and built environment sectors on product sustainability and new business opportunities provided through the clever re-use of materials and production systems, applying bioregional, One Planet Living and circular economy thinking. We devise clear and accurate messaging to customers and homeowners.
