R G Carter Environment CSR

Environment

Sustainable design, energy use, minimising waste, protecting the environment – these are all at the top of our priorities list.

We monitor water consumption, air and water pollution and waste to landfill to make sure we are meeting our targets. We consistently divert 92% waste away from landfill.

We are continuously searching for more sustainable methods and materials.

Wherever possible R G Carter work towards the BREEAM (Building Research Establishment Environmental Assessment Method) standards for the buildings we construct. We often achieve BREEAM ratings of ‘Excellent’ and ‘Very good’. Our highest rating to date is 85%.

We always consider the health and well-being of the occupants of our buildings and amend designs to minimise future energy consumption.
