Sustainability: Cundall

Constructing Excellence

Cundall are the first consultancy formally endorsed as a One Planet Company by sustainability charity BioRegional. In support of One Planet Living we launched a Sustainability Diploma in 2016 and will launch a Beyond Report in April this year. The Diploma will upskill and empower our staff to integrate sustainable design principles into everything we do. It gives participants the knowledge and confidence to challenge thinking and to develop practical, multi-disciplinary, affordable and innovative solutions. Consists of 13 modules, the Diploma is voluntary to all staff. The Diploma has been granted formal CPD status by the CPD Standards Office. Participants receive 10 hours of CPD for each module. 150 people are participating in the diploma, with 20% in Birmingham. To further engage middle management, each delegate’s line manager acts as a mentor, therefore learning by proxy. Cundall have created The Beyond Report, a tool which starts in April this year, will be used on every project. The report highlights specific initiatives to be explored which are tailored by project typology. This will be provided to our clients for free to try and positively influence all our projects, no matter what our scope.
