As the appetite for sustainable products, buildings and spaces has grown, we have seen an explosion in the number of sustainable credentials and certification schemes available. One question I get asked is, "which accreditation or assessment scheme is the best, and what should I use on my project?"

On a recent trip to the Netherlands, we had the opportunity to meet with colleagues from across the BAM Group to learn about and share BAM's experience of building with circular economy principles. The setting was one of our flagship circular projects.

With winter having now arrived, the tree planting season has begun! National Tree week is from 25 November to 3 December, and we’ve seen many people from across our business using their two volunteering days to get outside and help plant some trees.

I think working at BAM made me realise that I need to be more open-minded about opportunities I would not necessarily have considered at first.
