Advocacy & Influence

BuroHappold is a signatory to the Building Services Engineers and Structural Engineers Declarations

We have been strong advocates for system change at multiple levels. Through our membership of Aldersgate Group we have been engaging with government on international climate change strategy and signed an open letter to the PM calling for net zero carbon legislation. Within the industry we have been on the steering group for UKGBC net zero carbon framework definition and climate emergency response planning through the Cities Programme. We led the call for Engineers Declare through Happold Foundation and have been working with C40 Cities to build the business case for climate action though research and technical assistance demonstrating the air quality, health and economic benefits.
