IRIS Sustainable Development

In 1987, the World Commission on Environment and Development (Brundtland Commission)  presented the concept of ‘Sustainable Development’ in its report. The concept defined as "development which meets the needs of current generations without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs", has helped to shape the international agenda and the international community's attitude towards integration and a balanced consideration of social, economic and environmental goals and objectives in both public and private decision-making.

At IRIS, we are aligning our strategy with this concept and definition. With our proven track record in developing and managing large scale projects around the world, we are proactively advocating, promoting and implementing best practices in sustainable design and construction.

Our mission is to sustainably uplift environmental, economic and social well-being for today and tomorrow by transforming different landscapes with creative solutions that minimise environmental impact and maximise energy efficiency.

In commercial projects such as eco-resorts for example, we deliver sustainable designs that provide project owners with a triple bottom line benefits: employee well-being, environmental stewardship and operating cost reduction (people, planet, profit).

Our approach to sustainable development:

  • Planning well designed and sustainable communities for both rural and urban settings
  • Supplying environmentally-friendly, high-quality buildings and structures
  • Using recycled and locally sourced construction materials, which reduce environmental impact and carbon footprint
  • Connecting communities and ensuring community wellbeing - covering natural, social, cultural and economic aspects of life
  • Protecting and regenerating local ecologies
