We are committed to activities which promote both the wellbeing of all employees and the communities in which we operate. This ranges from simple initiatives such as the regular provision of fresh fruit in our offices, to internal mental health awareness campaigns, supporting charities, community projects and individual staff member’s charitable activities.
In our new Manchester Office, we have gone a step further by designing our new fit out to WELL standards. Unlike other accreditation systems, which focus on buildings, WELL focuses on people. An evidence and performance-based system for measuring, certifying and monitoring features that impact human health and wellbeing in the built environment, WELL’s assessment focuses on the concepts of air, water, nourishment, light, fitness, comfort and mind.
Our Commitment to Climate Action
In 2021 we joined the World Green Building Council (WorldGBC) Net Zero Carbon Buildings commitment. As part of this commitment, Hilson Moran will implement a detailed roadmap to reduce carbon emissions and increase renewably sourced energy within occupied assets – including a pledge to only occupy assets that are net zero carbon in operation by 2030.
As environmental engineers, we recognise that our carbon footprint is small in comparison to the construction and refurbishment projects we work on every day. We commit to lead by example, promoting best practice in low energy design, ensuring occupant health and wellbeing, and enabling buildings to operate as the design intended.
Signing this Commitment is the latest step in Hilson Moran’s response to the ongoing Climate and Biodiversity Emergency, following the launch of our Climate Manifesto in April 2021.
