New social sustainability framework launched

CLES has been working with construction organisation Laing O’Rourke to support the development of a social sustainability framework.

The framework is designed to inform all projects which Laing O’Rourke undertakes and ensure that construction brings maximum benefit for local economies and in addressing social and environmental challenges in the places in which they are working.

Developed over the course of the last eight months, the framework is unique and will enable impact to be both identified retrospectively and projected into the future.
