Waterman underlines commitment to sustainability with PAS 2080 verification

Published 20th February 2024

Underlining our commitment to creating a Net Zero built environment, our recent PAS 2080 three-day audit was a success, and we are now verified.

The leading standard for carbon management solutions in buildings and infrastructure development, PAS 2080 is a verification scheme to assess compliance. The standard’s development has been supported by leaders across our industry.

The standard applies to new projects or programs of work, as well as the management or retrofit of existing assets and networks. This means that any new buildings or infrastructure projects should consider their carbon footprint across their entire lifecycle, from design and construction to operation and end-of-life.

Richard Brooks, Waterman’s National Lead for Civil Structures, commented: “The assessor commended our professional capabilities, both corporately and individually, and highlighted the innovative approach demonstrated in our project examples. Notably, he praised the way we are challenging the industry with our design and said it is highly unusual not to have any minor non-conformities – a rarity that sets us apart, even among tier 1 operators. This success is a collective achievement that reinforces our position as leaders in the industry.”
