Our Commitment
Sustainability

Our drive to reduce our impact on the environment starts at the top with our senior management team and extends right through our business into our supply teams.

As responsible corporate citizens, we encourage sustainable practices in our construction approach. We also encourage our subcontractors and suppliers to investigate and operate sustainable alternatives to existing working practices. Our teams are further encouraged to actively seek out opportunities to measurably improve our environmental performance from the amount of waste we send to landfill to reducing our carbon emissions. 

We incorporate environmental management and best practices in all our business processes. JC Group of Companies provide a framework and clear procedures and practices for reducing and offsetting adverse environmental impacts of our construction and business activities. 

Our environment and sustainability strategy is focused on six key areas of activity:
 

  1. Waste and recycling: reducing the amount of construction, excavation, demolition and packaging waste we send to landfill by segregating and recycling materials wherever we can.
  2. Pollution: minimising our carbon emissions from construction processes and air, water, soil and noise pollution around our construction sites.
  3. Sustainability: implementing design and construction best practices which emphasise the long-term affordability, quality and whole-life efficiency of a building. In principle, we consider the occupied life of a building as being of higher priority than its construction.
  4. Procurement: using sustainably sourced building materials whenever possible, including hardwoods and reclaimed products, and minimising the environmental impact of goods and services consumed by our company.
  5. Awareness and Communication: reducing environmental risks and encouraging best practice among our staff, clients and supply chain through effective multi-media communications and awareness programmes.
  6. Training: ensuring every member of our site teams is fully trained on the environmental hazards of a live site, hazard prevention and procedures for hazard control and containment. Also ensuring that staff receive appropriate training to identify and apply environmental best practices in the workplace.
