Protecting the environment from the effects of our daily activities is at the very heart of what we do.

As an organisation we feel passionate about making sure our activities go as far as possible to protect the public, and beyond that enhance the environment and biodiversity.

Our Sustainability Strategy, Building New Futures, sets out how we are going to achieve this and also explains how we plan to help deliver the UK Government’s Net Zero strategy. While achieving a clean growth strategy and supporting our customers’ sustainability ambitions.

As part of this challenge, we are setting ourselves ambitious targets to play our part in tackling global sustainability issues. These include reducing greenhouse gas emissions, adapting to climate change, minimising waste, and enhancing biodiversity. It is vitally important that in line with this we continue to develop and implement the technology to report on our performance to inform our onward journey. We also remain committed to working with and enhancing the local communities and contribute to a better quality of life for future generations.


We focus on providing training programmes to enable our customers to gain greater efficiency out of their equipment. This includes our Eco – Operator training scheme which links data on fuel usage and operator performance enabling, the plant operator to operate the equipment in a more efficient manner reducing air pollutants and carbon emissions.

Our GPS courses enable sites to maximise productivity and reduce the fuel usage across the work area. We are also focussing on the use of hybrid and electric vehicles within our training programme. In addition to reducing the carbon footprint of our operational activities, these actions will also help improve air quality — an issue of growing concern in the UK due to the impact it has on people’s health and the environment.

As we support Balfour Beatty to achieve their 2040 ambition of going beyond net zero carbon, our actions will be guided by the implementation of the Institute of Environmental Management and Assessment’s (IEMA) Greenhouse Gas Management Hierarchy.
