|Buildcorp consistently goes beyond legislative and regulatory environmental standards to minimise any negative impacts on the environment that might result from our workplace activities and projects.|
We use an Environmental Management System (EMS) in accordance with global best practice guidelines: ISO 14001:2004. Our EMS is applied across our business. Through ongoing review, training and auditing we ensure that it is both well understood and adopted throughout our day-to-day operations.
Buildcorp is committed to protecting the environment. In our hear office, we minimise our reliance on non-renewable resources, by using solar power, sensor lighting, effecient water systems and recycling programs, which both reduce our environmental footprint and operational costs. However, our head office is only a tiny proportion of our total environmental footprint, which we view as extending to every project site. It is here that environmental management is most critical, requiring rigorous assessment, planning and management as well as mitigation strategies.
Since 2005, we have had fewer than five environmental incidents over the 730+ projects completed in that period.
