If you are successful in being appointed, this will be reviewed periodically throughout your employment. 

Arup's sustainability experts provide support to internal and external building design teams to enhance the environmental performance of our projects. We provide environmental assessment services which allow clients and external stakeholders to benchmark the environmental performance of their buildings and work with organisations to change their approach to embedding sustainability into their projects. Our experience encompasses new and existing buildings of all types in countries around the world. We use the UN Sustainable Development Goals as a framework to define how we can take action on our projects to affect change.  

The sustainability team is embedded in an integrated building design team which delivers complete building services for projects of all types.  Many clients want to find balance between commercial performance, usability, comfort and sustainability.  Such balanced solutions demand coordination, requiring the team to communicate and collaborate frequently with clients, design teams and specialists within the building sector.
