SUSTAINABILITY

Howard Civil Engineering is committed to a responsible and progressive approach to environmental sustainability.

SAFETY

ENVIRONMENTAL SUSTAINABILITY

We pride ourselves on our determination to reduce the environmental impact of our work, and we continually invest in new technologies and monitoring systems with the aim of ensuring our future operations are kinder to the planet.

As a minimum, we aim to responsibly source our materials, implement comprehensive waste management policies (in line with WRAP protocol), and monitor and control noise levels on specific sites. We operate a comprehensive environmental management system that is accredited to ISO 14001:2004 standards.

FURTHER INFORMATION

WASTE AND FUEL USE

Our comprehensive system of reusing materials helps us to minimise the amount of waste produced, and anything that cannot be reused is always separated and recycled where possible.

In 2022, we will be welcoming 19 new NRMM stage 5 engine excavators to our fleet, which will reduce the emission of Oxides of Nitrogen by a whopping 90%.

We aim to reduce the fuel consumption and emissions of our fleet and we are currently using fuel made from hydrotreated vegetable oil (HVO) on our Gateway 36 site, which we are aiming to roll use of this fuel out across all sites by the end of 2022.

Our determination to be kinder to our plant continues in our head office. All waste generated in our head office is recycled or diverted from landfill, and it is our aim that the building will be completely powered by solar by the end of 2022.
