Planning towards a sustainable future

We hope that you find our Carbon Modelling a useful approach so that together we can better understand your Scope 3 emissions, find decarbonisation opportunities through design and deep supply chain collaborations, and report and track your progress towards agreed targets.

Please join us on the journey.

Our collaborative approach has extended beyond our clients and project stakeholders to embrace the planet itself. We recognise that safeguarding the interests of clients and preserving brand integrity must also align with our responsibility towards the environment.

This is why sustainability threads through everything we do.


towards net zero

“We’ve made it our purpose to help people not only connect with branded spaces around the world but also to ensure these connections have a lasting positive impact on our planet.”

  • Paul Sparks – Director of Sustainability

it matters

As organisations look for ways to reduce carbon emissions and strive for net zero, there is limited consistency and guidance on how to account for down stream Scope 3 emissions.

In typical built environment settings, signage ranks very high in terms of embodied carbon. In this table, based on a retail network, signage ranks as the second highest in terms of embodied carbon.


Our Embodied Carbon Calculator was developed in conjunction with Federation University and matched grant funding through the CSIRO.  It considers materiality, manufacturing processes, and the associated logistics between sourcing and processing and the final installation.

Utilising this valuable tool, our Carbon Modelling will help you measure and understand the carbon footprint of the corporate signage within your property portfolio.

to circularity

The linear economy, where products are made, sold and end their life in landfills, is no longer a sustainable model. We also realise that recycling alone cannot create a more sustainable future.

To reach net zero, we need to change the way we use products and materials; therefore, the circular economy aims to:

1_Design out waste and pollution

2_Keep products and materials in use longer

3_Regenerate natural systems

In a circular economy, we stop waste production in the first place.

The circular
design model

No one organisation can solve the climate crisis. The circular economy requires new and previously unexplored collaborations, and together, we can find the innovation necessary to test, scale and drive the necessary transformation at pace.

Design, along with sustainable supply chain functions, are at the heart of the circular economy.  We have developed methodologies to extract the potential for a circular economy within our projects and the stakeholders required to achieve it, and then we have the experience to see them through with design and deep client and supplier collaboration.


The fastest way to circularity and lower CO2e is to reuse existing materials wherever possible.

Seeking alternatives to our standard materials can help to identify and harness low-carbon products.

Exploring waste streams that can transform into valuable material resources can also increase the ability to reduce landfills.

modelling report

Carbon modelling will provide you with the foundation for planning with reduced carbon emissions front of mind and sitting alongside budget and programme.

The level of detail provided in the report can vary to suit your context while always helping to identify areas to focus on and opportunities for improved circularity.

We can help you find a place to start:

1_Determining the scope of the carbon assessment

2_Calculating the carbon footprint of existing or proposed assets

3_Circularity strategies, workshops and design

4_Setting benchmark targets and tracking future projects
