HALLIDAY Fraser Munro has announced the launch of its Replanet initiative, designed to underpin the journey to carbon zero and its commitment to a sustainable future.
The architecture and planning practice revealed it has always been led by its ‘social, economic and environmental responsibilities’, but the growing climate crisis has prompted a ‘step change’ in sustainability globally.
As part of Replanet, the firm has launched a brochure, video and infographic timeline showing the journey to carbon zero emissions.
As a practice, Halliday Fraser Munro said it achieved net zero in March 2021. The business follows RIBA guidelines and added that it is mapping out the carbon journey on its new infographic that includes key dates on progress to January 2026 when net zero carbon is to be achieved on all projects with practical completion.
The firm already has Certified Passivhaus Designers’ Accreditation, which has implemented a hybrid working and green travel policy, and is about to introduce low emission cars.
MD David Halliday said, “As architects and planners, sustainability has always been at the core of what we do. The launch of Replanet is another sign of our commitment to tackling the climate crisis. The lead times for buildings are long. Tomorrow’s buildings are already on the drawing table today, and those buildings will impact our environment for decades, if not centuries, into the future. That’s why we are supporting our clients’ journeys to carbon zero now.”
