Our new business is called IC Sustainability. The IC stands for Inner City, our target areas, but is also intended to be a play on 'I See'.
This business is helping our customers (currently individuals) look at their use of natural resources; the amount of water and power they consume, how they get around, keep cool & warm, where they buy their food and the type of food they buy, their immediate environment such as their garden and living area. In fact, we look at their whole lifestyle and suggest ways they can lead the same lifestyle whilst leading a more sustainable lifestyle.
We perform an audit for the customer, noting all the above, then offer possible ways to improve the sustainability aspect, reduce their utility bills and save money. We also offer project management services to act on the recommendations if required.
Our driving force is using the definition of sustainability as follows;
"forms of progress that meet the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their needs"
