Our journey towards sustainability began from a sense of responsibility - as a company, as individuals, and as professionals - to limit our impact on the planet and the communities we work in.
What does sustainability mean to ISL? We believe in the sustainability framework and definition described by The Natural Step and our four sustainability principles are adapted from the natural system conditions they describe. We understand that sustainability is not achieved quickly and then completed; but a journey we are committed to take and share with our staff, clients and suppliers. ISL's journey is guided by our 2020 strategic sustainability goals and four sustainability principles.
We are dedicated to defining and sharing sustainability "best practices" with our clients. We believe sustainability does not come at the expense of budget, time or resources on any project, but should be considered a lens through which we look at all phases of any project or process.
ISL will continue to challenge the status quo and redefine the planning and design process and project success, always analyzing current and planned activities through our sustainability principles and framework.
ISL's engineers, landscape architects, planners, technologists, public consultation and management staff are all committed to growing their expertise to help clients understand and consider sustainable options at every stage of the project process.
We will evaluate our progress against our core themes and key performance indicators, helping us deliver sustainable and triple bottom line solutionsin each of our service lines and across office operations.
