Our Environment

Protecting the environment is important to everyone.

At EVT, we pledge to make change happen by implementing sustainable practices across our group, both now and in the future.

What it means to us

Sustainable Design

Sustainable design is the approach to creating products and services that consider the environmental and social impact from initial design phase through to the end of life.

For us this means:

  • Sustainability as part of the design process for capital works projects ​
  • Optimise energy efficiency for new builds and fit-outs

Sustainable Practices & Procurement

EVT adopts sustainable practices and procurement to reduce our carbon emissions, minimise waste, minimise our use of natural resources and procure products in a sustainable way.

For us this means:

  • A focus on recycling and waste management
  • Minimising and eliminating single use plastics where possible
  • Renewable energy procurement
  • Sustainable procurement strategy

Transparency & Reporting

Transparency and reporting means communicating clearly and openly, and then reporting on our environment initiatives.

For us this means:

  • Reporting on scope 1 & 2 carbon emissions ​and assessing scope 3 carbon emissions
  • Climate risk and resilience assessment ​
  • TCFD reporting​
  • Working with independent experts to achieve best practice and certification

View our Goals

“We live, work and play from cities to mountain tops, from deserts to the sea. So, we tread lightly, innovate for tomorrow and champion our planet. We recognise the scientific consensus on climate change, and we are conscious in the actions we take to address it now and in future.”

Jane Hastings, CEO EVT
