Our Approach to Environmental Sustainability

Environmental sustainability is a key element of our CSR, Sustainability, and Carbon Footprint policies, and concern for the environment and promoting a broader sustainability agenda are integral to Encon’s professional activities and the management of the organisation. We promote good sustainability practice, to reduce the environmental impacts of all our activities. For example for each development Encon plants 5 trees in Welsh Forests via the Carbon Footprint “Plant a Tree scheme”, in order to offset Carbon Offset Omissions, combat climate change and create space for wildlife.


In 2019, Encon established a Carbon Zero Taskforce. We are working across our business and supply chains to adapt and make changes across our business to continually reduce our carbon footprint.

Our Commitment

Sustainability Education

As part of our Construction Education Programme we offer local school primary schools the opportunity to take part in a Bug Hotel event using recycled materials collected on site and by the school.  

The event is not only great team building event, but an excellent opportunity for pupils to learn about sustainability. New for 2021 is secondary school carbon literacy training, and family orientated environmental sustainability projects.
