RSK: Global Leader in Sustainable Solutions

Our family of more than 200 environmental, engineering and technical services businesses work together to provide practical solutions to some of the greatest challenges societies have ever faced. 
RSK is enabling clients around the world to do their bit. We operate in most sectors of the economy, including many of those most critical to future global sustainability, such as water, energy, food and drink, infrastructure, urban development, mining and waste. With our integrated offering across research and development, consultancy and on-the-ground application, we can deliver a complete solution that is unrivalled in the market, and drives a ‘just transition’ to a resilient and net zero future for all.

RSK is proud to be an industry partner in the Energy House research, as it supports our commitment to the SDG’s and complements our commitment to deliver market leading sustainable solutions for our clients. Our involvement with the Friends programme recognises the importance of involving and informing the community in the drive to build net zero homes. We are delighted that our contributions will support the development of new skills in green technologies and build a pipeline of future talent which will enable us, and all those involved in new home development, to meet our carbon reduction targets.

It is well documented that the need for a skilled workforce within the sustainability sector is critical, and by partnering with higher education establishments on projects such as Energy House, it ensures students have the awareness and skills needed within priority areas such as renewable energy and net zero. This is something that is also in line with RSK’s own 2030 growth plans.

It is vital that the workforce of the future is aware of the transition to new approaches within house building and energy provisions so that the homes of the future will be fit for purpose and are also well positioned for future moves towards net zero design.

Haydn Keen, Business Development Director for Property and Construction at RSK, says: “Since 1989, RSK has been delivering environmental and engineering services to support clients around the world to minimise their impact on the planet.

“Our long-term vision is to become the world’s largest and most trusted provider of sustainable solutions. To achieve this, RSK has aligned its service offering to the Sustainable Development Goals – a universal call to action to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure that all people enjoy peace and prosperity. These goals have helped to shape our own internal practices and global footprint and are the driving force behind the diversification of our offering.”
