We're pleased to celebrate UNESCO's World Engineering Day 2021. It's aim is to highlight engineering’s contribution to sustainability.

Sustainable business

PM Group is an active supporter of the worldwide movement toward sustainable business. As engineers and architects, our greatest value and influence is in the expertise we provide to our clients. Our goal is for every building and project to provide sustainable solutions and leave a more environmentally friendly footprint on the world. We support our clients to develop initiatives aligned to the UN Sustainable Development Goals.

The Day addresses a global need for engineering capability and strategies for implementing sustainable solutions. "As well as executing best practise design, we ensure frameworks are in place to keep sustainable developments progressing”, said PM Group’s Head of Sustainability, Barry McDermott.

“Within our 2025 strategy, we have established an Environmental, Safety and Sustainability (ESS) Group. Their remit is to coordinate and plan for the further integration of sustainability in our clients and our own business. This falls alongside our Sustainable Design Bureau, allowing us to harness our collective sustainable expertise, helping our partners install sustainable practices for a healthier world”, added Barry.

According to the World Federation of Engineering Organisations; “World Engineering Day is also about promoting engineering as a career. Choosing engineering is an opportunity to change the world for the better. In all countries, there is a great deal to be done to deal with the impacts of climate change, environmental issues, our growing cities and the challenges of new technologies including artificial intelligence.”
