Advocacy & Influence
Elementa is a signatory to the Building Services Engineers Declaration
As a core theme in our Corporate Social and Environmental Responsibility programme, Elementa Consulting are committed to a programme of education and outreach within our industry, with our clients, and in schools and universities. Elementa actively promotes opportunities for net zero on every project they are engaged on, removing technical, financial and perceptual barriers to uptake.
In 2017 we created the London Energy Transformation Initiative (LETI), a network of over 250 built environment professionals that are working together to put London on the path to a zero carbon future. Funded through our in-house Impact Fund, LETI continues to play a significant role influencing the ambition and scope of the New London Plan. As sponsors and technical advisers to the WorldGBC’s Advancing Net Zero programme we have supported the development of pathways to net zero carbon that are being adopted around the world. We share our deep knowledge of net zero design widely – including speaking at green building conferences in Canada, South Africa, Dubai, Jordan, and across Europe.
The current focus for our research and development program is the detailed evaluation of the carbon footprint of MEP systems to inform systems selection – with the first round of results published in CIBSE Journal. Our network of STEM Ambassadors is working with local schools to inspire the next generation of engineers to enter a profession with a clear purpose and passion for addressing the climate emergency head on.
