Built Environment

From individual assets to entire portfolios and industry-wide transformation, we work wherever we can affect positive change. We address sustainability across the entire asset lifecycle, from planning and design through to operations and deconstruction. We work with developers, asset owners, manufacturers, builders, government and industry bodies to ensure a collective effort towards achieving sustainable industry outcomes. 

The built environment’s impact on nature and people is significant, including contributing 40% of global green house gas emissions (World Business Council For Sustainable Development).

We must rapidly transform the way our buildings, infrastructure and cities interact with our ecosystems, supply chains and communities.
Edge has the technical and strategic built environment sustainability skills to help clients (big and small) plan, design, construct and operate sustainable assets, portfolios and supply chains and help create industry change.

We help our clients and the wider industry to achieve greater sustainability and resilience across their assets, portfolios, organisations and supply chains. 

We deliver sustainability services for built environment clients from developers to asset owners, manufacturers, builders, asset managers, government agencies and industry bodies.
