Sustainable development involves balancing the need for growth and development against the need to protect the environment now and for future generations.

Sustainability deals with issues such as energy consumption, pollution, global warming, water usage, etc., and our experience with both Capital and Whole Life Costs allows us to provide practical, up to date advice on sustainable development. 

The advice and guidance we provide is founded on knowledge of research and nationally-promoted assessment and guideline criteria.   BREEAM best practice criteria for EcoHomes, retail, offices and industrial premises, Environmental Impact Assessments, strategic environmental assessments, considerate constructor’s schemes and the best practice guide to environmental management in offices, published by the BCO, and the Code for Sustainable Homes are indicative of the variety and range of assessment criteria currently applicable.

Rider Hunt acknowledges that it has social as well as financial accountability and the organisation constantly aspires to improve its corporate social responsibility to those affected by its activities. Comprehensive social responsibility and sustainable development guidelines are implemented for our core supply chain in line with best practice.

Throughout our business we endeavour to embrace forms of development and practices that are ecologically sound, viable in terms of economics, socially just and culturally appropriate.

Rider Hunt staff are constantly encouraged to think about the impact upon all our futures of their decisions in both their professional roles and their personal lives.
