Sustainable Engineering and Design believes that volunteering plays a key role in economic regeneration, therefore the SED team gives volunteer time and money to worthy causes and charities.
The SED team values the passionate camaraderie with other organizations and enjoys sharing in the team spirit with other volunteers.
