Carbon neutral Brighton & Hove

Brighton and Hove City Council launched a carbon neutral programme for the City to reach carbon neutrality by 2030. Brighton & Hove declared a Climate and Biodiversity Emergency in December 2018 alongside an ambition for the city to be carbon neutral by 2030.

Based in Brighton we are an blended architecture and interiors practice and dedicated signatories of Architects Declare, a network of professionals concerned about the concurrent threats of climate crisis and ecological collapse, and as such have sustainability principles at the heart of our practice.  

The debate around environmentally responsible design and standards is rapidly evolving and we pride ourselves on being at the forefront of this conversation through research and development of design practices and product development. Importantly, Stickland Wright understand that the underlying principles of sustainable design run parallel to the integral features of high-quality architecture and design. 

These principles, such as robust detailing, use of natural light, and adoption of appropriate technology are common practice to the whole team and the application traverses our entire portfolio. We have substantial inhouse expertise on innovative low-energy design and seek out opportunities to work on deep green projects with clients. Our ephebic oath – ‘We will transmit this City not only not less, but greater, better and more beautiful than it was transmitted to us.’ Stickland Wright will continue to advocate for the highest standards and aspirations for a built environment that addresses the myriad challenges of our age.
