We are committed to supporting a sustainable future for all our staff, clients, consultants, visitors, and the wider community through employing practices to minimise our carbon footprint. We also endeavour to balance our economic, environmental and social responsibilities to ensure all our activities have a positive impact on the communities in which we live and work.
In order to ensure possible environmental impacts are adequately managed, we have developed and implemented a Group Environmental Management System. It outlines how we will assess Environmental aspects and impacts, fulfil our obligations to employ sustainable practices and maintain a focus on continual improvement. This ensures we continue to introduce innovations such as developing our Custom Engineered Building system, reducing the amount of steel used by up to 30%, and creating a steel paintline system that uses recycled water.
We develop a specific Environmental Plan for all our projects in line with relevant legislation and any client requirements. These plans define the targeted standards and how they will be implemented, monitored and controlled throughout the duration of the project. We also focus on developing innovative design features that utilise sustainable energy resources, looking for opportunities to use recycled materials and minimising ongoing maintenance costs.
Our Environmental Management System is certified to the standard AS/NZS ISO 14001:2004, certified by LRQA, an internationally accredited certification body.
