Integral Group’s commitment to Corporate Social and Environmental Responsibility (CSER) is guided by our Deep Green mission to leave a legacy of positive impact on the world. As a professional services business, we lead by example supporting clients to move toward a more sustainable and just built environment. Through our operational footprint and handprint of our projects, we aim to improve the lives of employees and the communities in which they live and work.
Integral is much more than a few individuals. It’s a firm born from the idea that together we change the world through our collaborative efforts.” – Kevin Hydes, Founder + Chair
We are proud to release our 2020 Corporate Social and Environmental Responsibility (CSER) Report. This document is the fourth publicly released annual report on our commitment to the Planet and our People through our operations across the firm. It includes an introduction to our firm, our values, and shares our CSER performance data for the 2020 calendar year.
We track CSER performance across five categories: (a) environmental footprint, (b) justice, equity, diversity + inclusion (JEDI), (c) health + well-being, (d) education + impact, and (e) safety + resilience. Please visit our CSER Performance Dashboard here which allows you to examine our data more closely, with year-on-year trending as well as more granular data breakdowns and comparison capabilities.

The CSER Report also aligns with the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which are a global call to action to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure that all people enjoy peace and prosperity. Through our own operations, we directly address 14 of the 17 SDGs.
Our CSER initiative is rooted in our intrinsic desire to move the building industry to operate in resonance with the natural systems of the Earth. The way we make that happen is to operate (walk the talk) in alignment with the deep green and equitable principles and systems which we design for our clients. We believe when we all do our part to manage what is within our direct control, and advocate for others to do the same, we will collectively transition humanity to live in balance with the available resources on the Earth. – Megan White, Chief Sustainability Officer
