We are working to minimise our impact on the environment throughout the construction of the project and are working in line with Balfour Beatty’s new Sustainability Strategy. We are looking into how we can reduce our waste and energy consumption and are promoting this on site to raise awareness of our commitment. We welcome suggestions from our workforce on any innovations that could support our goals.
We have implemented measures around site and are working with our energy management team and central sustainability team to ensure are protecting the environment. Some of the actions we have taken are:
- LED and PIR lighting to reduce carbon emissions
- Low carbon plant and machinery on site
- A substation on site to remove the need for generators
- Promotion of Earth Day to raise awareness among our workforce
