Achieving effective environmental outcomes requires breadth of perspective and depth of experience. Arup works with clients around the world to provide environmental expertise across the full lifecycle of their projects. We work as partners, helping to research and understand environmental impacts, strengthening the performance of our clients’ proposed designs and investments.
Community of expertise
Arup advises clients with an ever-growing community of expertise, providing access to over 90 related services and effective long-term support. Our work on the UK’s High Speed 2 programme typifies our approach. Our environmental consultancy has brought together a wide range of disciplines including planning, transport, health, equality and sustainability to ensure this major national rail development delivers the best results.
Always new thinking
Clients come to Arup for imaginative solutions to environmental objectives, helping them to achieve more sustainable policy, plan and project outcomes. We helped develop the Wild West End initiative for developers and property owners, establishing a green corridor and supporting health, wellbeing and biodiversity in the heart of London.
Environmental leadership is something every business must take seriously – it helps them to thrive long-term and optimise operations to the benefit of their own bottom line and the communities they work in. ” Michael Bull Global Environmental Consulting Leader
Research that refines and defines
We help to define new technical standards for industry bodies and government. We were recently commissioned by the Institute of Environmental Management and Assessment to prepare guidance on assessing greenhouse gas emissions. And working as the global knowledge partner for the built environment for the Ellen MacArthur Foundation, we recently published ‘The Circular Economy in the built environment’ – a report into how the construction industry could adopt this revolutionary approach to sustainable production.
Insights at every step of the way
We are trusted advisors to clients from the earliest concept stages of a commission through to planning, stakeholder engagement, assessments, monitoring and commissioning and into operations. Our work on the regeneration of Stratford City demonstrates how longevity produces greater and deeper insights. For over twenty years, from the planning of phase of High Speed 1 to our ongoing work as environmental advisors to the London Legacy Development Corporation, we’ve provided technical leadership every step of the way.
