Our primary objective is to minimise our environmental footprint and deliver responsible transportation infrastructure that enhances the experience of the natural surroundings, and promotes the long-term sustainability of our environment.
As such, we are committed to integrating sustainability throughout all our business practices and to considering sustainable approaches for the delivery of all works. We also strongly believe that developing a better understanding of all aspects of sustainability of any given product or process leads to improvements in the selection of the final design solution for a project.
Our sustainability and environmental policies and management systems are therefore dedicated to the preservation and protection of the natural environment, and continual compliance with all environmental regulations and government laws and codes.
We have established a toolkit of policies and directives that set out practical tools to help our people prioritise sustainable thinking into everything they do. This toolkit is a useful resource to support the Highway Construction’s sustainability training initiative, which is aimed at raising awareness of the benefits of sustainable thinking onsite.
This toolkit information on the our commitment to sustainable practices including policies covering:
- minimising water usage;
- reducing and reusing materials;
- recycling and reusing materials;
- minimising fuel and power use;
- minimising environmental impact; and
- maximising the use of materials that minimise environmental impact
