Inspiring Others

We put people first. We’re proud to make a difference to our people, collaborators and the communities within which we operate, through our projects and social value activities.

We offer paid volunteering leave as part of our employee benefits package, in the form of either two days of volunteering in the UK or a week of volunteering abroad. Our team often volunteers within schools and universities to help children and students gain an understanding of engineering.

Environmental Commitment

As part of our Environmental Management we have committed to the following objectives:

Reduce Civic Engineers’ carbon footprint

We have introduced a number of initiatives to achieve this goal such as a Green Warrior group who are responsible for coordinating our efforts to improve our green credentials in each of our studios. We encourage staff to walk, cycle or use public transport for their commutes to work and do not have a fleet of vehicles; we positively try to reduce the amount of travel required for meetings by making effective use of Skype and other forms of video conferencing. All our 4 Studios are purposely located in easy access to a train/tube or metro station and have facilities to store bikes and showers to use after a cycle ride to work.

We have also signed up for a Green energy audit to look at ways in which we can reduce our energy consumption in each of the studios.

Reduce Waste and Improve Recycling

Recycling is an easy way that individuals and teams can make a difference to improve our environmental credentials. Each of the studios offer recycling facilities for food, plastic, cardboard and paper; employees are widely encouraged to recycle their waste. We have also committed to reduce the usage of non-disposable cups and actively encourage employees to use reusable cups instead. Additionally, defunct electrical items and printer cartridges are also recycled. We also try to reduce the amount of packaging for any deliveries that are made and also try to select local suppliers who do not have far to travel. It is important to us that our suppliers also take their environmental responsibilities seriously.
