Identity Consult launches decarbonisation arm

The development and construction consultancy has established IC Zero, a brand committed to helping clients meet the challenges of the climate crisis.

The newly established brand will help private and public sector clients reduce their carbon footprints and achieve net zero, Identity Consult said.

Identity Consult has offices in Sunderland, York, Salford and Preston.

The team will encourage clients to invest in the future, guiding them through retrofit and refurbishment projects as well as delivering energy-saving LED and PV programmes on buildings across the region.

So far, the team has secured a host of projects across including Durham University, for which it has secured one of the government’s Salix decarbonisation grants – an initiative led by the Department for Energy Security and Net Zero – in addition to the rollout of the LED and PV installation programme across 50 health centres for Assura.

Identity Consult senior director Matty Pendergast said: “We’re incredibly proud of our new division which underscores our commitment to achieving Net Zero.

“We strive to navigate our clients through each project with seamless precision, helping reduce their carbon footprint within budget constraints. Our commitment extends to the constant exploration and incorporation of innovative materials, products, and technologies aimed at minimising energy consumption.”

In 2023, Identity Consult reported a 35% increase in headcount which now stands at 75 across its four offices.

“We look forward to harnessing the expertise of bright minds who will actively engage in projects that contribute to our clients’ endeavours in delivering their net zero commitments. The future holds great promise, and we are excited about the prospects it brings,” concluded Pendergast.
