Sustainability is about placemaking
Our goal is to be a modern business generating long-term value by creating successful, sustainable places where people aspire to live and work. We are committed to being a responsible business which thinks about the long-term. We seek to not only reduce negative impacts but to maximise the benefits our activities can bring to create a positive impact. Our aim is to be world-class within sustainability, both in terms of designing sustainable places and running our business efficiently and considerately.
Operational Carbon Neutral
Darling Associates have achieved operational carbon neutrality, as certified by Plannet Zero, rebalancing our operational greenhouse gas emissions for 2021. We are aware that offsetting is not the solution, however, this is the first step in analysing and taking responsibility for our outputs, with a commitment to a minimum 5% reduction year-on-year towards 2050. Darlings have invested in Gold Standard carbon credits from a project protecting the Amazon Forest including a habitat for high conservation value species as well as a wind farm project in Karnatka, India, reducing the local reliance on coal generated energy.
