Sustainability

We recognise the impact on the environment that our projects make through our ISO 14001 accredited work, and we advise our clients on the internal procedures to assist them in realising key environmental objectives, such as:

  • Minimising negative environmental and social effects in the design stage
  • Working the use of local resources, including materials with low embodied carbon
  • Ensuring effective waste management
  • Promoting the use of renewable energy where possible, reducing the reliance on fossil fuels
  • Improving he energy performance of buildings we work on

By securing Carbon Neutral status for our own company and retaining it over the past 4 years, we understand what is needed to achieve efficiency of resources including staff, travel, water and energy.

Trident has significant experience implementing recognised green accreditations including BREEAM, NABERS, WELL Standard, Cycle Score and Wired Score. Alongside encouraging clients to target a BREEAM rating of ‘Very Good’, we are currently advising all our clients to seek a minimum EPC rating of ‘B’ prior to 2030.

As you can see, we are proud to incorporate our clients’ ESG considerations, as well as our own along with the UK Green Building Council’s published guidance, into each project to futureproof them in the bid to reduce carbon emissions.

We deliver all due diligence advice with sustainability at the heart, for you to make full informed investment acquisition decisions.

The work we do accounts for a significant proportion of global CO2 emissions but we relish the challenge of contributing towards environmental improvements to the built environment on the road to Net Zero. We do this by incorporating energy saving and sustainable solutions when preparing planned maintenance programmes for individual properties and our clients’ property portfolios in order to reduce operational energy use.
