We acknowledge the biodiverse locations in which many of our projects are delivered, and remain committed to minimising our impact on the environment.
Strong environmental performance is essential to the ongoing success, growth and sustainability of our company. Promoting an environmentally aware culture through training and communication; demonstrating leadership and commitment to applying best-practice in environmental management across our operations; and continually improving our environmental performance and efficiency, is fundamental to our business strategy and operating method.
Our environmental management systems are certified to ISO 14001, the internationally recognised standard for environmental management, and we also hold platinum status with the Australian Steel Institute Environmental Sustainability Charter.
In addition to our project sites, we continue to implement environmental best-practice at our fabrication and assembly facilities in Perth and Newcastle. Along with our traditional and established controls, we continue to seek new opportunities to improve our environmental performance, focused on resource and energy efficiency through:
- reducing supplier packaging and improving recycling rates, in turn reducing waste going to landfill
- investigating the feasibility of investing in renewable energy
- continuing to measure and monitor our inputs (energy, water and materials) and outputs (waste and emissions), allowing us to understand our current impacts on the environment and monitor performance over time.
