My research project
Greening the built environment: an industry perspective
I am carrying out my Practitioner Doctorate in Sustainability (PDS) with Wates Group, one of the UK's largest family-owned construction and development companies. I am working closely with the environment team at Wates to understand how systemic barriers in the sector are preventing the creation of a greener built environment, despite a growing body of evidence demonstrating the multitude of benefits nature can bring to towns and cities.
