Slattery is committed to conducting business in a sustainable manner and strives to regularly identify, review and assess the environmental impacts of our business operations, and to assist our clients in reducing the environmental impact of their projects. We strive to incorporate quality improvements including sustainable solutions into each of our client’s projects.
We have worked on many award-winning projects that have implemented environmentally sustainable design solutions including Green Star, PassivHaus, WELS, WELL and NABERS rating and certification systems. In working with design teams to achieve ESD solutions within a project, Slattery research and price various options to enable good decisions to be made that take into account the value and cost of each design feature; allowing transparent discussion on each initiative’s merit and achieving value for money via an integrated design approach.
This is important for any project, contributing to a leading position for Australia in the global move towards sustainable societies. Slattery will work with clients to further develop sustainability goals and targets for their project and cost assessments of environmental options, allowing them to maximise their sustainability performance.
Slattery has operated a Greenhouse Gas Emissions Inventory in line with ISO 14064 since 2008. This assists us in targeting reductions in our business emissions per employee. We are currently developing an Environmental Management System (EMS) in line with ISO 14001.
Our Carbon Planning Service ensures that embodied carbon is considered and calculated early in the design phase. As sustainability is an everchanging space, our aim is simple; a continued commitment to contribute to our people and projects in a positive and impactful way to create the future cities we want to see.
The focus of the carbon plan will address and educate our clients on the embodied carbon of the various building items/ products/ materials within the development and calculate the total upfront embodied carbon for the project using Global Warming Potential (kg CO2eq) as the unit of measure.
