As COP26 draws to a close in Glasgow this week, HNW are proud to show our support and alignment of our belief to create a #SustainableSocialLegacy through the work we are involved with. We have therefore signed up to the RIBA 2030 Climate Challenge with the aim of achieving net zero carbon for the UK building stock by 2050 and now have in place our own road-map to achieve this ambitious challenge.

HNW were an early signatory to the UK Architects Declare Climate and Biodiversity Emergency movement, and have endorsed the recent Built for the Environment report. We have operated an Environmental Management System in compliance with ISO 14001 since 2012 and have supported and trained members of our own Team to provide in-house Certified Passivhaus Designer services.

To help achieve their own 2030 targets, we have been working collaboratively with our clients since 2009 to achieve Carbon Neutral/Net Zero Carbon buildings, including:

Linden Homes and Clarion – Graylingwell Park: carbon neutral homes and CHP energy centre

Southampton City Council Green City Plan 2030 – in conjunction with AECOM and Mesh Energy

West Sussex County Council Climate Change Strategy 2020-2030 – in conjunction with Faithful+Gould

Willmott Dixon: Zero Carbon by 2030 – as a supply chain Partner

The College of Richard Collyer – Leading College for Sustainability by 2023 as part of the Climate Action Roadmap for FE Colleges

We look forward to working with all our clients, consultants and friends on this journey to achieve the Climate Challenge targets.

None of the above could be achieved without the guidance provided by:
