Environment

back to social value

We are committed to minimising the environmental impact of our activities, and have successfully retained our Environmental Management ISO 14001 certification for over a decade.

Sustainability is a key element of our business approach in both our office and site operations. To reduce our carbon footprint, we have on-going initiatives to improve fleet efficiency and energy consumption in our buildings. We are already reducing our carbon footprint by changing the way we procure material and employing local people.

Our sites provide a host of environmental challenges, such as the vast quantity of timber pallets used to transport equipment to site. To ensure this precious resource does not end up in landfill we have partnered with Community Wood Recycling. Their innovative approach includes recycling timber by upcycling it into furniture and converting it to biopellets for energy production. They also provide training, jobs and volunteering opportunities for people marginalised from the labour market, with hundreds of people benefitting from this initiative annually.
