PDT Architects sustainability policy statement

PDT strives to make a difference environmentally in the construction industry, and thereby positively contribute to the wider community. We do this by creating a culture of sustainability at PDT where people habitually think, act and implement sustainability in all areas of the business.

PDT strives to make a difference environmentally in the construction industry, and thereby positively contribute to the wider community. We do this by creating a culture of sustainability at PDT where people habitually think, act and implement sustainably in all areas of the business.

We are committed to benchmarking our internal operations and project based services above ESD industry best practice, and base level government guidelines. We endeavour to do so by:

  • Embracing sustainability as a fundamental core design driver for all projects;
  • Continually assessing and reducing our carbon footprint by implementing, monitoring and surpassing sustainable operational initiatives. This has been applied to our new premises, which has been submitted for a 5 Star Green star Office Interiors V1.1 rating accreditation.
  • Providing staff with on-going professional development and encouraging opportunities for all industry stakeholders to participate in green education and knowledge sharing through support of in-house and external programs;
  • Capturing an increasing percentage of new project work in the green building sector; and
  • Producing successful sustainable projects with outcomes that exceed client expectations.
  • PDT architects endeavours to record its sustainability plans, objectives and benchmarking. All monitoring of progress is to be assessed annually to enable reporting for third party perusal. This policy and all procedures relating to are to be maintained on the pdt ESD intranet, and training provided as required to ensure all staff understand its requirements and implementation.

PDT  is committed to working with the construction industry and local communities to improve the environmental quality of the built environment in Australia. It is our belief that with the full support of our staff and industry partners, this policy can be successfully achieved.
