Our ESG strategy


Tide is committed to acting responsibly both through our own business operations and through the delivery of exemplar projects.

As a sector, the built environment has a crucially important role to play in reducing greenhouse gas emissions, both from construction activities and throughout a building’s operational life. We also understand that our work has a critical role to play in addressing not just the climate crisis but also the UK’s urgent housing shortage.

Furthermore, resource efficiency and biodiversity enhancement opportunities need to be realised. Similarly, the UK housing crisis, underpinned by a shortage of supply and an increased demand, requires rapid, socially responsible and innovative resolution.

Our Approach to ESG | Tide

1. Enhancing our communities


We are creating the sustainable communities of the future. Volumetric development can unlock constrained inner-city sites and transform them into future-ready neighbourhoods which are delivered to the highest performance standards.

We engage closely with communities for the long-term, but we also understand that social responsibility starts at home, ensuring that all our staff work in a clean, safe and healthy construction environment. Our factory-based model via Vision Volumetric promotes long-term, stable employment.

3. Championing the sector

We will continue to lead the industry in the adoption of modern methods of construction (MMC) and raise awareness of its environmental, social and governance benefits. We work closely with institutional partners, government, national bodies and consultants advocating for the volumetric sector’s key role in creating a more efficient construction industry and to help solve the UK’s housing and construction crises.

Our projects and construction methods are also being recognised globally for their contribution to sustainable development. The Financial Secretary of the Hong Kong government and his team visited Ten Degrees to learn about volumetric delivery, and we have won a number of key of awards globally including Council for Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat Awards in Chicago.
