Environmental, Social and Governance Policy

Our Commitment to Sustainability

It is Zetta Scope’s mission to operate the agency in a sustainable and responsible manner.

We believe that interior design can make a positive impact, not only on the aesthetics and functionality of spaces but also on the environment and the communities we serve. At Zetta Scope Interiors, we are committed to embracing Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) principles in everything we do.


Environmental Responsibility:

We are dedicated to minimising our ecological footprint and promoting sustainable practices throughout our design process. We emphasise the importance of designing for durability. That means designing buildings and structures that are durable and built to last. This minimises the need for frequency replacements. It should reduce the need for renovation, which in turn minimises waste generation.

From utilising eco-friendly materials and implementing energy-efficient solutions, to incorporating biophilic design elements that connect people with nature, we strive to create spaces that are environmentally responsible and contribute to a healthier planet.


Social Impact:

We understand the importance of spaces in shaping human experiences and well-being. That's why we prioritise creating inclusive and accessible environments that cater to diverse needs and enhance the quality of life. We collaborate closely with clients, considering their unique requirements and incorporating elements that promote comfort, productivity, and a sense of community. Additionally, we actively seek opportunities to support local artisans and craftsmen, fostering economic growth and preserving traditional skills.


Governance and Ethics:

Ethics and integrity are at the core of our business practices. We are committed to upholding high standards of professionalism, transparency, and accountability. Our clients can trust us to deliver exceptional designs and manage projects with utmost honesty and fairness. We also prioritise open and clear communication, ensuring that our clients are informed and involved throughout the entire design journey.


Partnerships and Collaboration:

To further our ESG objectives, we actively seek partnerships and collaborations with suppliers and contractors who share our commitment to sustainability and social responsibility. By working together, we can create a positive ripple effect, driving meaningful change in the industry and beyond.


We firmly believe that integrating ESG principles into our interior design services allows us to create spaces that not only inspire and delight but also contribute to a more sustainable and equitable future. Join us on this journey towards responsible design, and let's shape spaces that leave a lasting impact.


How We Work


When working on a sustainable office project, Zetta Scope Interiors is guided by a set of principles that promote environmental responsibility and social impact. We conduct life cycle assessments for your projects to evaluate the environmental impact of materials and design choices. By considering the entire life cycle of a building, including construction, use, and disposal, we can identify opportunities to minimise waste and maximise sustainability.


From the outset, we are considering the carbon impact of our projects and the whole-life cost and value of your interior design. It’s a mindset we’re happy to share. Sustainable choices should be more cost-effective in the long run. Here are some key principles that guide us on these types of projects:


●Energy Efficiency:

Our designs focus on reducing energy consumption by incorporating energy-efficient lighting, appliances, and HVAC systems. Maximise natural light and consider utilising daylighting strategies to minimise the need for artificial lighting.


●Sustainable Materials:

We select eco-friendly and sustainable materials, such as recycled or reclaimed materials, low VOC (Volatile Organic Compounds) paints and finishes, and renewable resources. We prioritize materials with low embodied energy and those that can be recycled or repurposed at the end of their lifecycle. Our paints and finishes are eco-responsible. We avoid chemicals that can be allergic to people, affect indoor air quality and ultimately harm the wider environment.


●Indoor Air Quality: 

We design with indoor air quality in mind by specifying products and materials that have minimal off-gassing of harmful chemicals. Ensure proper ventilation and consider integrating indoor plants to improve air quality.


●Waste Reduction and Recycling:

We Incorporate waste reduction strategies by promoting recycling and implementing waste management systems during the design, construction and occupancy phases. So for example we use durable furniture with removable fabric covers that can be revamped rather than replaced in any future makeover.


We also encourage the use of recycling bins and educate occupants on the importance of recycling. We are considering this right from day one and we incorporate elements designed to be dismantled and re-used or recycled  to avoid disposal costs.  We encourage adaptive reuse and renovation of existing structures whenever possible. By repurposing existing buildings, we help to reduce the demand for new construction materials and decrease the amount of construction waste generated.


During construction development we will actively work with developers and contractors to create the waste management strategy and plans for the construction sites. We collaborate with contractors and stakeholders to implement effective strategies for waste segregation, recycling, and responsible disposal. We understand that these strategies encourage the use of recycling facilities and ensure that construction waste is diverted from landfills.


●Water Efficiency: 

We design and integrate water-saving fixtures and technologies, such as low-flow faucets, dual-flush toilets, and water-efficient irrigation systems. We advise on incorporating water filtration systems to reduce the use of single-use plastic water bottles.


●Biophilic Design:

Creating green indoor spaces are a core element of the Zetta Scope Interiors design aesthetic. We Incorporate biophilic design elements that connect people and spaces with nature. Indoor plants, natural materials, and views of green spaces are all elements that can enhance well-being, productivity, and the overall experience within the office.


●Flexibility and Adaptability:

Our designs consider spaces that can be easily reconfigured and adapted to changing needs over time. We use modular furniture systems and flexible layouts that allow for future modifications and reduce the need for complete renovations.


●Inclusivity and Accessibility:

We design spaces that are accessible to individuals with diverse abilities. We use universal design principles, such as accessible pathways, adjustable workstations, and inclusive restroom facilities.


●Community Engagement:

Zetta Scope Interiors is committed to engaging with the local community and supporting local artisans, suppliers, and contractors. We look for opportunities to contribute to the local economy and social development as part of our sustainable community principles. We try to prioritise working with local manufacturers, suppliers, and artisans. By sourcing furniture, finishes, and materials from nearby sources, we can significantly reduce the distance they need to travel, thereby minimising transportation emissions.


●Education and Awareness:

We understand that every engagement is an opportunity to educate clients, occupants, and stakeholders about the importance of sustainable design practices. Whatever the engagement channels, we raise awareness about the environmental and social benefits of sustainable offices and encourage responsible behaviours and practices. Being a sustainability champion is important to us, and in the architectural space we advocate for sustainable building codes and regulations that promote recycling, waste reduction, and environmentally responsible construction.


We want all of our employees to be sustainability champions and as our workforce expands, we are committed to providing ESG policy training and education including, on green building principles, sustainable design strategies, and certifications such as LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design). This will enable our workforce to integrate sustainability into their designs and make informed decisions regarding energy efficiency, materials selection, and environmental performance.  Ours will be a culture of lifelong learning and positive participation.

By following these principles, we design and create sustainable office spaces that prioritise environmental stewardship, occupant well-being, and long-term sustainability.

Our Commitment to NetZero 2030


Zetta Scope Interiors employs several strategies in an effort to reduce transportation-related carbon emissions including:


  • Regional Suppliers: Where local options are limited, we look to regional suppliers and try to choose suitable suppliers that are located as close as possible to our project sites. We see this as important for reducing transportation distances and costs compared to national or international suppliers.


  • Digital Catalogues and Samples: Where possible we utilise digital catalogues and samples Instead of requesting physical samples that require shipping. We can use online resources and virtual representations to evaluate finishes, textures, and materials.


  • Consolidated Orders: Where possible we combine multiple furniture and finish orders into larger shipments whenever feasible. Consolidating orders reduces the number of transportation trips required, leading to decreased emissions per item.


  • Warehouse and Distribution Centres: We are committed to working with suppliers who have warehouse or distribution centres near our project locations. This allows us  to access their inventory quickly and reduces the need for long-distance shipping.


  • Green Transportation: As part of our commitment to education and awareness we encourage our suppliers to adopt greener transportation practices. We prioritise collaboration with companies that utilise electric or hybrid vehicles, prioritise efficient routing, and offset their carbon emissions.


  • Collaboration with Local Craftspeople: Our commitment to community engagement supports the engagement of local craftspeople and artisans to create custom furniture or finishes if possible. Not only does this support the local economy, but it also reduces the carbon footprint associated with transporting ready-made items.


  • Virtual Design Presentations: The advent of Covid-19 highlighted how well this can be executed. We utilise technology to conduct virtual design presentations and consultations whenever possible. This minimises the need for in-person meetings that require travel and reduces associated emissions.


  • Sustainable Material Selection: We consider the environmental impact of materials when specifying furniture and finishes. We prioritise products made from sustainable or recycled materials, as well as those with low embodied energy or certifications indicating eco-friendliness.


By implementing these strategies, we can significantly reduce transportation-related carbon emissions while still delivering exceptional interior design solutions for our projects.


Our commitment to Sustainable Partnership


As we solidify our ESG commitments we recognise the importance of crafting a sustainable supply chain and building partnerships with like-minded organisations throughout the design ecosystem.


We  look for suppliers that hold recognized environmental certifications such as Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certification for wood products, Cradle to Cradle (C2C) certification for materials with a focus on circularity, GREENGUARD certification for low-emitting indoor products, or Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED), to ensure their sustainability credentials.


These certifications indicate that the supplier's products meet certain environmental and sustainability standards.


We encourage our suppliers to demonstrate a commitment to energy efficiency and reducing their carbon footprint. We ask about their efforts to optimise energy use in their manufacturing processes, as well as any renewable energy initiatives they may have in place. We recognise that suppliers that measure and report their carbon emissions are more likely to be conscious of their environmental impact.


We look for transparency and accountability in all aspects and will actively seek out those suppliers who can provide transparent information about their supply chain, including the origin of materials and components.


Transparency helps ensure that suppliers are accountable for sustainable practices throughout their entire production process.


We assess the contractors’ and suppliers' commitment to social responsibility and look for companies that adhere to fair employment practices, support their employees' well-being, and prioritise diversity and inclusion. Suppliers that have social responsibility policies and participate in community development initiatives demonstrate a holistic approach to sustainability.
