Profitable And Environmentally And Socially Sustainable Projects

Both at the design level and further in implementation strategy, know how is at the heart of how Sedgman Novopro ensures projects are carried to be both profitable but also environmentally and socially sustainable. From developing patented technologies that consume less than 50% of the energy consumed than any other process in the design stage to implementing projects with local training components to minimise mobilization of foreign workers, Sedgman Novopro has had a great track record in presenting client with projects that meets both the profitability but also the sustainability requirements.

Sedgman Novopro’s methodology to develop projects efficiently and with sound fundamentals is to use Risk Based Development Approach This method facilitates the team to perform activities generating data needed for sound decisions to be made with a thorough understanding of their impacts on economic viability as well as environmental and social sustainability. Furthermore innovative and Best Available Technologies are utilised to ensure projects developed and implemented are meeting social and environmental sustainability standards as provided by IFC guidelines. Examples of impacts of such an approach are the following:

  • Reduction of energy consumption, including CO2 emissions
  • Reduction of water consumption
  • Reduction of waste generated
  • Utilization of local labour force by application of tailored designed training programs, reducing the need to import labour
  • Use of modularization to reduce construction time and site hours, reducing numbers of people during construction

In every case the above techniques can lead to both a more sustainable but also more economical outcome. This means that sustainability and economical viability can be both achieved.
