Our sustainable development strategy is to design, build and operate sustainable buildings and structures, taking into account the expectations of all our stakeholders including clients, partners, employees and the community.
ACTITUDES: 4 PRIORITIES 12 COMMITMENTS
To help meet the challenges of sustainable development, Bouygues Construction Australia is supported by a global initiative called Actitudes. This approach to business is supported by our Executive Management and defines our approach to business being organised around 4 Key Priorities and 12 Commitments. Its progression is measured against defined Key Performance Indicators linked to each commitment, with performance monitored via our internal reporting processes.
This approach is integrated into every stage of the project life cycle, from design to operation ensuring design optimisation.
INNOVATING FOR SUSTAINABLE CONSTRUCTION
To anticipate and move with the dynamic changes that affect our working practices, Bouygues Construction places sustainable construction at the heart of its research programs. The focus of this program is the energy efficiency of buildings, the lowering of CO2 emissions, resource and materials use, biodiversity, interior air quality, the eco-friendly behaviour of users and eco-design.
DESIGNING HIGHLY ENERGY EFFICIENT PROJECTS
Our aim is to adopt eco-design principles to reduce the environmental impact of our projects to a minimum whilst ensuring user comfort and optimising the life cycle. To align with our global target we aim to use environmental certification such as BREEAM®, LEED and HQE® on over 50% of all orders for buildings to promote this agenda.
RESPECT FOR THE ENVIRONMENT
During the construction phase, we strive to lower the environmental impact of our projects to a minimum and reduce the impact on the local community. We achieve this objective via implementation of our Environmental Management System which is accredited to ISO 14001 Environmental Management System Requirements. Our Environmental Management System is underpinned by the implementation of 11 Global Environmental Standards which detail our standardized approach to managing 11 strategic environmental risks.
We are also committed to recognising excellence in environmental management which is demonstrated by our Ecosite Certification Program. This program utilises an audit and assurance program to measure performance against our Global Environmental Standards. Projects are awarded a Ecosite Label when they attain a standard of excellence in environmental management.
