All big changes start at home. We are therefore committed to integrating sustainable practices into our everyday processes by understanding our environmental impact areas and empowering staff members to make positive choices every day.
Our environmental management system is externally audited to ISO14001 standards. As part of this, we track our operational emissions and create mitigating solutions for our office and staff members.

At Furness Partnership we have committed to reducing the impact of the built environment by declaring a climate emergency and promising change in the industry. Structures can contain around 50% of a building’s embodied carbon, due to the use of virgin materials and associated emissions. As structural engineers, it is our responsibility to offer sustainable design solutions to drastically reduce these emissions and advocate for circular economy principles.
We are proud to be experts in building conservation and have analysed our performance to date of both new builds and refurbs for embodied carbon.
