Reaching for high standards.
Being conscious of our footprint is important not just for our planet, but also for business – namely the people who work at Welcome Building® and their health, happiness and productivity.
It’s why we’re striving for the very highest level of certification in sustainable building design, both in the way we operate and how we want those inside to function and feel.
Running Net-Zero all day
Targeting EPC rating 'A'
Through clean solar energy, thoughtful low carbon materials, and low-energy building services – we'll achieve a 40% reduction in CO2 emissions.
