HOW WE ACHIEVE IT
Sustainability in the workplace is a crucial aspect of modern business practices. It involves adopting environmentally friendly and socially responsible measures to reduce the ecological footprint of a company’s operations while also considering the well-being of employees and the community. Estilo Interiors, as a leading company in commercial fit out projects, is committed to sustainability in every aspect of its operations.
Environmentally Friendly Materials and Practices: Estilo Interiors places a strong emphasis on using sustainable and eco-friendly materials in its commercial fit-out projects. This includes the use of recycled or renewable materials, low-VOC (volatile organic compounds) paints, and energy-efficient lighting systems. These choices reduce the environmental impact of the construction process and result in healthier indoor air quality for the occupants.
Energy Efficiency: In line with its commitment to sustainability, we incorporate energy-efficient designs into all our projects. This includes the installation of energy-efficient HVAC systems, insulation, and smart building technologies that optimise energy consumption. These measures not only reduce operational costs for clients but also contribute to a lower carbon footprint.
Waste Reduction: Waste management is a critical component of sustainability. We actively seeks to reduce waste during the construction process. This includes recycling and repurposing materials, as well as responsible disposal of construction waste, providing full site waste management plans to our clients. The goal is to minimise the impact on landfills and promote a circular economy.
Green Certifications and Compliance: Office fit out companies play a crucial role in creating environmentally friendly and sustainable workspaces. To ensure our projects meet the highest environmental standards, we work with our clients at each stage with a view to achieving one of, if not more of the recognised assessment methods: SKA, BREEAM, WELL, and LEED. Each method has its unique strengths and advantages, making them suitable for different project requirements. Organisations seeking comprehensive sustainability and wellness goals may find BREEAM or LEED more suitable, while those specifically focused on fit-out projects could benefit from SKA. WELL is ideal for organisations placing a high priority on occupant health and well-being.
Carbon Footprint Reduction: Carbon neutrality is a growing focus for many companies. Estilo Interiors takes steps to reduce its carbon footprint by considering a multitude of factors. It actively encourages the use of public transport or carpooling among its employees and subcontractors to minimise the impact of commuting, alongside hybrid working policies to allow employees the ability to work from home if the need dictates. Whenever possible, we also source materials and labour locally. By doing so, we contribute to the reduction of transportation-related emissions associated with long-distance sourcing.
Employee Wellbeing: Sustainability in the workplace extends to employee well-being. Estilo Interiors prioritizes the health and comfort of its team members. This includes providing ergonomic office furniture, creating spaces with access to natural light, and fostering a supportive and inclusive work culture.
Community Engagement: Beyond its internal operations, Estilo Interiors is committed to giving back to the community. The company supports local charities including Property for Kids and other initiatives that align with its sustainability goals. This not only benefits the local community but also helps in our goal to be a socially responsible organisation.
Continuous Improvement: Sustainability is an ongoing journey. We continuously review and improves our sustainability practices. This includes staying up-to-date with the latest advancements in sustainable construction and design and actively seeking feedback from clients and partners to identify areas for improvement.
By actively embracing workplace sustainability, Estilo Interiors not only benefits the environment and the community but also provides its clients with spaces that are not only aesthetically pleasing but also environmentally responsible. This approach aligns with the growing demand for sustainable and eco-conscious design and construction, making Estilo Interiors a preferred choice for clients who value sustainability in their projects.
