I’m Emma McNicholas, Regional Director at OOBE in Newcastle. Let’s explore something more than just a trend but a significant catalyst for businesses: ESG (Environmental, Social, and Governance) policies.

So, what’s the deal with ESG?

At OOBE, we’re all about empowering our clients to embrace ESG principles. Here’s how we make it happen:

1. Sustainable Design Solutions: At OOBE Ltd we craft landscape designs which prioritise native plants, with efficient irrigation, and green infrastructure, not only reducing environmental impact but also saving on costs.

2. Community Engagement and Inclusivity: We believe in engaging with local communities to ensure that inclusivity and social responsibility are at the core of our projects.

3. Resilience and Climate Adaptation: Our designs prepare our clients for future challenges and the changing climate.
