Sustainability is at the forefront of our thinking

As engineers, we are conscious about the influence we can have not only in structures and buildings, but also in the environment and wider society. We take this responsibility very seriously and as such adopt a whole-hearted approach to working sustainably.


Green Team

Symmetrys has expanded our dedicated sustainability performance team to really help build on the work we have completed to date and to really push this agenda to the max. Be that how we behave and operate as a company, or how we specify and behave as engineers.

Our Climate Response page serves to document our progress on tackling the climate emergency both inside and outside of the office, and our journey to net-zero.
