Building with Conscience



Sto leads in the field of sustainability in modern construction, through raw material selection, recycling of packaging and embracing new technologies. Together, these factors improve our system designs and help us towards our sustainability targets.

What constitutes sustainability?

"Is it sustainable?" is a frequently asked question in the construction industry, but without an official industry definition the answer can often be down to a loose interpretation. Rarely is the answer a simple yes or no.

We at Sto have considered this matter carefully and developed our own stance on the issue of sustainability:

"The point at which the needs of Social, Environmental and Economic factors intersect for a mutually beneficial outcome."

The short-term needs of commerce and the community have to be balanced against long-term issues such as energy consumption. It is the impact of our consumption habits which concerns us. It is our aim that all consumption leads to long-term improvements in social, environmental and economic spheres.
