We are committed to reducing our carbon footprint and that of our customers by the regionalisation of the business and the minimisation of fuel usage

  • Site waste is minimised
  • Waste is correctly stored, transferred and disposed of
  • Vehicles are driven in a manner that is fuel efficient, prevents accidents and avoids nuisance
  • Nuisance to the public is minimised, or where unavoidable due to emergency or essential works, that notification and compensation plans are implemented
  • Suitable and effective arrangements for emergencies such as fire, spillage or pollution of land, air or water are made
  • The use of recycled and recyclable materials is promoted
  • Wastewater, ground waters or diverted surface waters are correctly managed and permitted
  • Vehicles, plant and equipment are chosen in consideration to their energy efficiency
  • Vehicles and plant do not release black smoke
  • Materials, substances and equipment are procured with consideration to reducing environmental impact or that with control do not present an unacceptable risk
  • Office activities minimise resources use through procuring recycled or sustainable forested paper, reusing and recycling paper, using energy and water efficiently; and effecting the most efficient method of commuting to work.
