Our responsibility

We exist to optimise customer experience. 

MINIMISE ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT.

Agilité was purposefully established to redefine the spaces we work in – but we also recognise that our industry needs to evolve as well. That’s why we’re constantly to integrate more sustainable working practices in all that we do.

According to research by Bimhow, the construction sector is thought to contribute to 50 percent of climatic change, 40 percent of drinking water pollution, 23 percent of air pollution and 50 percent of landfill wastes. Our industry’s collective vision should be for a sustainable built environment that mitigates and adapts to change – and there’s no better time to start.

Putting it into practice

As a certified B Corp™, we belong to a community of for-profit companies committed to redefining success in business. Our certification recognises that we are meeting high standards of social and environmental impact and leading a global movement for an inclusive, equitable and regenerative economy.

Based on a vision of creating a community of for-profit companies that are committed to redefining success in business, the certification furthers Agilité’s obligation toward operating as a force for good and normalising sustainable business practices in all we do.

This certification isn't the culmination of our efforts though, it's a stepping stone toward continual improvement – and our ESG Manifesto acts as a formal publication of our progress and plans.

Building a responsible supply chain

We’ve never wanted to simply subcontract our work and risk jeopardising the integrity we strive so hard to deliver. We therefore work alongside construction specialists who care about people and the planet just as much as we do. That’s why we’ve spent so much time developing trusted relationships throughout the supply chain, in every country we’ve established a presence.

And when we expand into a new geographical market, the same search for potential strategic partners, unfolds. It’s the only way we can guarantee projects meet the standards we’ve set for ourselves, time after time.

With our sustainability consultancy partner, A Beautiful Green, we conducted a detailed supplier analysis to understand where we stood regarding sustainability within these partnerships. It helped us see more clearly where we needed to improve and where we wanted to strengthen valuable collaborations. As for now, we have a responsible purchasing policy and ask each one of our suppliers to sign and comply with our supplier code of conduct.

Projects we support

Protecting the world’s water

We are deeply committed to affecting positive change through our own initiatives. We know the knock-on impact construction can have on the oceans and our planet’s water isn’t something that can be left unchecked. That’s why we’re proactively working towards reducing those negative impacts in our own operations and services.

What’s more, we’ve also committed to donating a percentage of our profits each year to help projects which we believe can help the building industry to be more sustainable. Our chosen beneficiaries are:

We know the construction industry consumes a lot of water and we firmly believe everyone should have access to a clean resource. charity: water is a non-profit organisation bringing safe drinking water to people in low and middle income countries.

As a business, we know that we contribute to landfill. Therefore, it was important for us to support an initiative which is helping to put that right. This non-profit organisation is developing and scaling technologies to rid the world’s oceans of plastic.

Construction creates a vast amount of CO2, of which mangroves are a significant absorber –The Mangrove Action Project exists to preserve, conserve and restore this vital ecosystem. We were impressed by the organisation’s grassroots, bottom-up approach to mangrove conservation and restoration issues.

Agilité Solutions staff fund

What’s more, we’re also keen to support charities, projects, or initiatives that matter to our colleagues and have ringfenced a pot of money to back their philanthropic interests, too – with no caveat around the type of support we provide.

The support doesn’t solely need to be financial, either – we will dedicate time to distributing supplies, supporting youth learning, backing clean-up campaigns, or any other in-kind initiatives that matter to our team.

Reuse/recycle

During the strip-out phase of our projects, we make a point of looking for opportunities to reuse, recycle, or donate any fixings and furniture that are still in working order – as we did during our project with QBE.
