To achieve this they implemented the Verified Carbon Standard (VCS) programme and offset their 2020 carbon footprint by planting 120 trees in the South East of the UK, whilst having a paperless office and providing a Cycle to Work Scheme.

As part of urban’s commitment to BeMore inclusive, the brand has partnered with the Stephen Lawrence Charitable Trust (SLCT) to launch the #BeMoreInclusive programme; designed to support young people from under-represented backgrounds into architecture and to help built environment employers to access a more diverse workforce. The team also takes part in annual charity events to raise money for the SLCT, such as the Three Peaks Challenge, running the London Marathon and walking 75 miles from Portsmouth to the SLCT headquarters in London in 25 hours.

BeMore Inclusive

“When I joined the STR Group, I never dreamt that I would be backed as greatly as I have been.  Being given the autonomy to create urban, our architecture brand, is without a doubt my career highlight to date. The business believed in my ideas, visions and values, and subsequently nourished these in a way very few businesses do, and now I’m proud to say that we have one of the best defined, most uniquely positioned architectural recruitment brands in the world.”
