Sustainability is at the heart of our design approach. We audit projects against global standards as well as our own, more comprehensive, Responsibility Framework. To build sustainably requires us to design holistically, driven by our unique integrated approach. Every project starts with fresh thinking, leading to innovative solutions that are tailor-made to site, user and climate.
As an environmentally driven studio, we aim to practice what we preach. Over recent years we have developed an analytical framework for our own office, based on our bespoke Foster + Partners Responsibility Framework (FRF). This covers ten sustainability related themes - Wellbeing, Community Impact, Energy and Carbon, Mobility and Connectivity, Resources, Water, Land and Ecology, Social Equity, Planning for Change, and Feedback - and informs our CSER policy.
