The Sustainability Sector Interest Group (SIG) exists to promote best practice in sustainable practices in the built and natural environment. It does this through a programme of meetings throughout the year, and through engagement with key stakeholders.
Objectives of the Sustainability SIG
- Identify and promote best practice in the field of sustainable development in the built environment
- Demonstrate the breadth and value of sustainable solutions offered by ACE member companies
- Engage with key stakeholders including DEFRA, the Homes and Communities Agency, and significant property developers
The sustainability developments group held its first meeting on 11 September 2001, and has continued to explore the issues surrounding sustainability ever since. Now known as the Sustainability SIG, the group explores the role of sustainability across multiple sectors. This could include carbon reduction through to food sustainability in terms of ensuring that supply occurs in a manner that does not result in negative externalities being imposed on future generations. As a growing part of design and consultancy globally it is important that the UK reacts in a manner that places it’s expertise at the forefront of such issues.
