It isn’t easy to be truly ‘sustainable’. The perception is one of financial risk, of hampered growth, of stifled enterprise. Business and industry must be given every opportunity to flourish and prosper, while achieving the UK’s commitments internationally on climate change and nationally, for economic growth. This means enabling the disruptive technologies of today to enhance the quality of people’s lives and the utility of the places designed for tomorrow. This is what we mean by sustainable development.
