In making this commitment, we are proud to be recognised by Business Declares and the United Nations Race to Zero campaign, as a signatory of the SME Climate Commitment.

Setting a 4-Pillar Climate Strategy

Sustainable Acoustics places climate strategy at the heart of our company strategy, to mobilize our entire business model for the 1.5°C ambition, remain competitive and true to our vision. Pillars 1 and 2 of our strategy focus on reducing our own emissions and that of our value chain, including emissions from company pensions. Pillar 3 integrates climate into our business strategy and includes our aim to provide the best acoustic solution advice for the climate to our market by benchmarking our recommended materials against sustainability indicators and enabling our consultants to recommend products which empower customers to make positive decisions for the climate. Pilar 4 describes how we will contribute to the 1.5°C ambition beyond our own business. This means, for example, influencing government policy, supporting industry initiatives, and making sure organisations our company belongs to do not counteract our company’s own actions. Specifically, we work across our industry as members of a sustainability strategy working group, and are creators of a nationwide acoustic survey network aimed at reducing emissions associated with business travel.

We welcome conscious collaborations across the built environment. We are not claiming to be perfect, and we enjoy learning and collaborating with others. Through our membership of Business Declare, we aim to locate more contacts and customers we can work with and for to enable us to fulfil our company purpose of enhancing wellbeing, sustainability and the 1.5°C ambition across the built environment with our acoustic consultancy service mix.

Ultimately, we are guided by the principal of abundance, our aim being to join with others to create more opportunities for decarbonisation, innovation, and business growth by giving our focus, energy, and financial investment to generate a flourishing human society in balance with nature.
