“We are committed to advancing sustainability proactively and progressively, through the work we do, in the spaces we create and in every facet of our business. Our approach is guided by an eye on the long term, a respect for our planet’s ecology and an understanding that we have a stewardship role to play, as designers, suppliers and individuals’’.
Amongst the most responsible things we can do is to provide design solutions which have a long lifespan; products and materials which last, age well and adapt. By getting the fundamental decisions right the first time, such as space planning, quality materials and adaptability; we reduce the need for energy to be spent in reworking spaces in the future. EWD do not promote a throwaway culture which contributes to landfill. Good design can, and should be beautiful. In being so it helps to secure it's own longevity, solutions which continue to please and engage us over time will endure.
EWD embrace a holistic view of technology, materiality, humanity and ingenuity. We recognize that while good design is a constant, innovation is always changing. This drives us to incorporate the latest in environmental thinking in our products and operations, to behave sustainably and responsibly. It is through focusing on the long term that we are intrinsically sustainable. We safeguard the successes we have enjoyed for future generations, this approach enriches our spaces and it is the right thing to do.
We are experienced with BREEAM accreditations should there be the requirement. Eve has undergone training with the Cambridge Institute for Sustainability Leadership and stays up to date with sustainability Best Practice.
