Renewable Energy

Sustainable sources of energy from renewable resources … wind, water, the sun, biomass and geothermal energy … is inexhaustible and clean.

Renewable energy products and services constitute a rapidly growing segment of the international marketplace.

The costs of technologies to capture that energy are rapidly falling and becoming economically competitive with fossil fuels, while reducing the risk of climate change. Investing in renewable energy creates jobs, fosters economic growth, and improves energy security for countries that lack domestic fossil fuel resources.

Increasing the share of energy from renewable sources can reduce greenhouse gas emissions and local pollution; insulate countries from fuel price volatility; and improve those countries’ balance of payments.

 

Renewable energy is becoming increasingly cost-competitive.

Some recent scenarios estimate that renewables will contribute more to a low-carbon energy supply by 2050 than nuclear power or fossil fuels using carbon capture and storage.

Hydro, geothermal and bio-energy have long been competitive where limited financial resources are available, and now wind and solar are also economically attractive in many locations.   Supported by strong enabling policies at the public level and robust investment from the private sector, renewable energy could supply a much larger share of the world’s energy by 2035.

Capture

Sustainability strategy

Our aim is to be a leading sustainable business, trusted and respected by our stakeholders for the ethics we adopt and the products and services we supply. Our focus is on delivering products and services that meet the requirements of resilience, low carbon construction and the circular economy.

Our approach is built around six topics which underpin our sustainability policy and performance indicators:

  1. Enabling sustainable development – partnership and product development
  2. People and communities – zero harm in the workplace; creating sustainable communities and working with our stakeholders
  3. Carbon and energy – climate change and energy use
  4. Waste and raw materials – sustainable consumption and production
  5. Water and biodiversity – water conservation and enhancing the natural environment
  6. Quality processes and systems – management systems for continual improvement.

We have clear targets within these topics and report annually on progress and performance.

 

Managing sustainability

Our safety, health and environment functions are managed within a single sustainability department to provide increased focus both internally and externally. The department delivers a professional regulatory and advisory service to all business lines, audits, and leads the drive to develop a trained and competent workforce.

 

Action plan

As party of our overall business action plan we will:

  • provide training and guidance for employees to understand our key objectives, encourage them to take responsibility for performance and improve competency
  • continue to develop and implement our sustainability strategy and ensure compliance with legislation, accurate reporting and continual improvement
  • publish annually a report on the prior year’s performance
  • implement a stakeholder review process and continue to develop our strategy to meet stakeholder interests
  • develop new products that enhance our credentials and the sustainable built environment meeting the needs of our customers
  • achieve and develop our sustainability targets and lead by example.
