We care about the environment in which we live and work

We recognise the impact we can have as a product of what we do, through our corporate actions, the projects and solutions we deliver, and through our thought leadership. Our aim is to fully integrate low carbon thinking and management throughout our business, and to drive continuous improvement and innovation over the longer term. We are continually challenging how we can create better solutions with enhanced environmental benefits, that align with project, client and community outcomes.

Our declaration

Stantec UK is committed to making a positive impact. We recognise the importance of raising awareness of the climate and biodiversity emergencies, alongside contributing positively to society, and averting climate breakdown through our projects.

We are a signatory of the UK Pledge to Net Zero and ICE 13 Point Pledge, part of the United Nations Climate Change Race to Zero. We delivered on our promise to achieve operational carbon neutrality in 2022, a key step in our phased process to achieve science-based, operational net zero.

Our teams are committed to designing sustainable, resilient communities, mitigating the effects of climate change, helping biodiversity, and supporting the transition to a carbon-neutral economy.

Our designs contribute to equality in society, delivering social value by building better places and communities—improving the lives of those who live, work and study in them.

Together, we will champion a creative, technology-forward, collaborative approach to tackling climate change throughout our operations, project work, and our industry.
