Oktra Sustainability and Compliance Manager Dieuwertje Kingma and Senior Designer Jemma Harrison discuss sustainable workplace design.
Despite temporary shut-downs and reductions in operational carbon emissions due to lockdowns across the globe, the COVID-19 pandemic hasn’t made a lasting sustainability impact. The climate crisis continues to rage on, making large-scale, permanent environmental changes increasingly necessary to make any progress towards limiting the planet’s rising temperatures.
With the construction industry responsible for almost 40% of the world’s carbon emissions, we recognise the responsibility we have to prioritise sustainable solutions in the built environment. Our Sustainability and Compliance Manager Dieuwertje Kingma and Senior Designer Jemma Harrison spoke about the importance of sustainable workplace design in our latest LinkedIn Live session, covering the components of a sustainable workplace and its associated benefits.
