At Rydon, our approach to sustainable development is based around three key areas; Communities, Environment and People.
Rydon has a long track record of forming close bonds in the communities where we work through our dedicated Resident Liaison team. Our specialist Resident Liaison team acts as the interface between members of the community and Rydon, ensuring mutual understanding and respect for each party’s needs and interests.
Recognising that residents and the local community should play an instrumental role in any project, we welcome information, local knowledge, support and feedback throughout the preparation and development stages. At Rydon’s site offices, our resident liaison officers operate an open door approach and encourage residents to provide feedback, both positive and negative, and to indicate their levels of satisfaction in respect of site staff and subcontractors.
Many of our sites are also affiliated with the Considerate Constructors Scheme, an independent body which regularly monitors our site activities.
Rydon Group strives to make a positive contribution to the world we live and work in. We continually focus on the reduction of waste, energy, and carbon emissions through our operations relating to buildings, transport and industrial processes.
The Rydon Group holds the Environmental Management System accreditation ISO 14001:2015 which ensures we minimise how our operations impact the environment, comply with applicable laws, regulations, and other environmentally oriented requirements. In doing so, Rydon takes steps to consider risks, evaluate operations and scrutinise the sustainability of our supply chain. We ensure products and services selected are responsibly sourced and have minimal impact.
Rydon aims to reduce environmental impact, to protect the environment and improve environmental performance. Good environmental management can reduce the risk of regulatory fines and often identifies opportunities to save money.

Social sustainability involves identifying and managing business impact on people. The quality of Rydon’s relationships and engagement with its stakeholders is critical to a sustainable business. Directly or indirectly, Rydon affects employees, contractors in the supply chain, customers and local communities, and it is important to Rydon to manage these impacts in a positive way.
Rydon Group has focused its social sustainability agenda on foundations we believe to be crucial to the sustainability of our industry, including training and up skilling our workforce, reducing unemployment rates, community and stakeholder engagement, and being considerate constructors.
