Their latest responsibility report is packed with great insights on circular goal setting - from ‘elephants in the room’ to wins & fails along the way.

We're a B Corp!

Speaking of which, what’s really put a spring in our step is that we’re now a certified B Corp. That means that we’re very proud to be 'walking the talk'.

What we've been reading & listening to this month:

  • Great listen: 'Climate salon' - Dezeen’s shiny new podcast series on collaboration to reduce the environmental impact of building and designing.

Stay positive!
