Sustainability is not a buzzword at Como. We have a genuine commitment to minimise our impact on the environment. Sustainability is as important to us on a project as safety and quality, time and budget.

In recent years, we have set—and met—critical targets to improve our sustainability performance through best-practice construction, additional client services, an expanded communities programme and greener internal activities. We have done all of this in part because it's good for business. More importantly, we have done it because it's the right thing to do.

At Como, we have dedicated environmental team that works closely our leadership to ensure we set project targets and stick to them.
