White Young Green is pleased to announce the launch of its new Sustainable Development initiative. Recent global concerns have caused an increased focus on sustainability in all areas of life and demonstrate the need for a more responsible and effective approach in both business activities and our personal activities.
However, there is much confusion about what Sustainable Development means in practice both in the boardroom and at operational level. WYG's aim is to deliver balanced and integrated advice on the social, economic and environmental issues, which need to be considered in all actions and which determine impacts now and in the future.
Central to its mission and values WYG has identified a need to progress towards sustainable development. The issues are to become part of the day to day client liaison and to underpin this a Sustainable Development Consultancy Group has been formed to drive this initiative forward into the market place. The Group is a leader in the sustainability field, by advising clients of options at the beginning of projects and in the context of their on going operations, developing solutions through the provision of specialist cross-disciplinary services.
WYG can offer key understandings of how to harness innovation to produce step change and with this, business opportunity. The company has a skill combination, which provides distinct advantages in the provision of Sustainable Development advice. This derives from extensive project work in the engineering, environmental, planning, socio-economic and transportation context. This is complemented by expertise in corporate strategy underpinned by an advanced approach to management system implementation and integration.
