LEED Gold Biopharma research and office facility
Climate science indicates we must reduce our greenhouse gas emissions to Net Zero by mid century to limit climate risks and prevent catastrophic human disaster. Buildings represent approx 40% of total global carbon emissions, including the materials used to construct them and energy used to operate them.
As society transitions to Net Zero, decarbonisation of buildings is an urgent requirement.

Sustainable solutions that ensure environmental protection and economic benefit.
Creating better spaces to work, in harmony with our natural environment.
PM Group can support smart planning and decision-making from the earliest stages of your sustainable building project. This, together with intelligent and integrated sustainable design thinking, can set your building’s carbon emission trajectory towards Net Zero and mitigate future emissions - even as your business grows.
At PM Group, our vision is to work with our clients to build a more sustainable world. This is enshrined in our Corporate Strategy and in our ISO certified work practices.
“The decisions we make now can secure a liveable future. We have the tools and know-how required to limit warming.” IPCC
One size does not fit all. These principles of decarbonisation can only be successfully implemented through solutions bespoke to the building function, and recognising the infrastructure of the building's location.
Sustainable building design can achieve significant carbon and operational cost savings. It should be considered a business investment opportunity.
Just some of our recent project work in this area:
We worked with a leading global pharmaceutical company on a breakthrough carbon benchmarking study to determine the whole lifecycle carbon of their new manufacturing facility. The results allowed our client to understand the most significant carbon sources in their pharmaceutical manufacturing facility. This facilitated reducing not just the client's scope 1 and 2 operational emissions, but also their scope 3 embodied carbon footprint.
PM Group acted as the nominated LEED AP, Principal Designer and Construction Manager for new laboratory and office development on a clients existing site. The building attained LEED Gold certification. Key achievements included a 54% reduction in interior lighting energy; 52% reduction in indoor water use; 12% reduction in embodied carbon in construction, and 95% of construction waste recycled.
Our team completed an extensive study on behalf a multinational pharmaceutical client to develop a strategic Decarbonisation Plan and Net Zero Roadmap for their manufacturing facility. A full energy balance was prepared and benchmarked against both industry standards and best practice. Optioneering and technical analysis of decarbonisation solutions was prepared including capital investment assessment. Solutions identified a potential for 75% reduction in carbon emissions.
Our specialist Environment and Sustainability service team works with our clients to achieve their ESG / Sustainability goals and Science based reduction targets.
