There is a particular responsibility to the environment in the urbanizing world, as increasingly scarce clean water and warming temperatures pose a rising challenge to basic habitability. So we are a purpose-led firm, embracing the challenge to alter the culture of development from doing well – to doing well, while doing good.
Our sustainability professionals draw from a diverse range of planning, analysis, technology and public policy disciplines, to balance the economic and ecological considerations of development.
Informed by research we improve the management of project lifecycles – from project identification, site selection, feasibility, design and construction, to facilities management and commissioning. And with this research we are uniquely able to demonstrate quantifiably improvement in performance over baseline projects.
Our sustainability conversation doesn’t stop at conservation. KEO is advancing standards for public safety, commercial standards, public policy and process so that people in a rapidly urbanizing, modernizing and expanding world can live more agreeably with each other, and the environment.
Each core member of our sustainability team possesses multiple international and regional accreditations, including LEED, Estidama, CEEQUAL, WELL, BREEAM, and the Global Sustainability Assessment System (GSAS) certification.
