Tyler Grange bosses have had a long-standing commitment to environmental policies and believe that development is a key source of social mobility to level-up communities across the country.

The four-day week firm works with UK architects, housebuilders and developers to ensure that construction projects are delivered with optimal benefits to people and the environment.

To reduce its carbon footprint, Tyler Grange has made its supply chain and business practices more sustainable.

Simon Ursell, managing director of Tyler Grange, said: “We’re obviously absolutely thrilled to have been invited to become one of the select sponsors for the All-Party Parliamentary Group on ESG. 

"And we’re very proud that the brilliant work we’re doing to operate most sustainably has been recognised by our invitation to join. 

“As a B Corp certified organisation, we’re part of a global community that believes business should be a force for good.

"We’ve always been committed to treating our people, our communities and the environment as they should be treated, and we have a responsibility to help other businesses to do the same. 

"By joining this advisory board, we have yet another opportunity to help create a more sustainable and inclusive economy and the many benefits this will bring."

Alexander Stafford MP, founder and chair of the advisory board, said: “The board is delighted to engage with businesses who are committed to driving forward ESG policy.

"Tyler Grange has shown they share our passion for ESG and is an innovator in this space. 

"I look forward to working with Tyler Grange to continue to develop, assess and implement ESG reforms, and I am delighted to welcome them to the board.”
