SDS marks Earth Day 2021

4th May, 2021

Thursday 22 April saw the world come together to acknowledge Earth Day 2021. The theme for this year was ‘restore our earth’ and focussed on natural processes, emerging green technologies, and innovative thinking that can restore the world’s ecosystems. In this way, the theme rejects the notion that mitigation or adaptation are the only ways to address climate change.

The south west  is renowned for its dramatic coastlines, sweeping landscapes and abundance of wildlife, flora and fauna. In fact, this is one of the many reasons why Cornwall was chosen to host the G7 Summit later this summer.

As a regional business, we were proud to make donations to a number of charities and organisations with sustainability and conservation at the heart of what they do, Bumble Bee Trust and the Soil Organisation to name but a few.

There has never been greater need to protect our ecology and reduce the UK’s impact on climate change. As building services engineering consultants, we are pleased to set an example on such an important issue by finding ways to reduce our environmental footprint, in addition to supporting our clients deliver zero carbon developments. A recent project, Clifton Hill for Exeter City Living has just been awarded the Building with Nature award, whose focus is on “high quality places for people and wildlife”.

We are proud to be working with clients who share our mission in delivering developments that will also deliver for the natural world and healthy communities, allowing people to live closer to nature.
