Save to shortlist Saved to shortlist Apply now

At Arup, we design and deliver ground-breaking icons through our work in infrastructure, building design and specialist technical services. Independent in ownership and spirit, we're a global firm of designers, planners, engineers, consultants and technical experts who use our skills to make a positive difference in the world.

Arup's sustainability experts provide support to internal and external building design teams to enhance the environmental performance of our projects. We provide environmental assessment services which allow clients and external stakeholders to benchmark the environmental performance of their buildings and work with organisations to change their approach to embedding sustainability into their projects. Our experience encompasses new and existing buildings of all types in countries around the world. We use the UN Sustainable Development Goals as a framework to define how we can take action on our projects to affect change.

The sustainability team is embedded in an integrated building design team which delivers complete building services for projects of all types. Many clients want to find balance between commercial performance, usability, comfort and sustainability. Such balanced solutions demand coordination, requiring the team to communicate and collaborate frequently with clients, design teams and specialists within the building sector.

By thinking beyond standard solutions, we help clients achieve their sustainability aspirations – from internal targets to third party ratings such as LEED®, BREEAM and the WELL Building Standard.
