At Tungsten, we are committed to implementing and improving our base specification, processes and procurement practices to consciously lower the negative environmental impacts of development while improving economic and social outcomes.
Our 'big box' units target and contain the following features as standard:
We recognise that with the development of real estate comes a responsibility to deliver environmental and social benefits to our occupiers, their workforce and local communities in which we operate.
- Reduce the carbon emissions in our buildings by 50% by 2030 relative to a 2012 baseline
- Ensure all new construction meets an EPC rating of A
- All timber used on construction projects is documented as ‘legally sourced and sustainable’ as per the UK Government Central Point of Expertise on Timber (CPET)
- Primary construction materials will only be sourced from manufacturers that operate within a recognised Responsible Sourcing Certification Scheme (RSCS)
- Reduce water consumption in our buildings by greater than 25% of the current regulatory guidance
- All appointed main contractors will operate within a recognised Environmental Management System (EMS)
Procurement has a significant impact on our performance as a business and it is vital that we effectively manage the social, environmental and economic impacts equitably. That is why Tungsten Properties is committed to delivering sustainability through its procurement activities relating to materials, works and services being provided.
