The Environment

Carey Building Contractors maintains a proactive policy when it comes to sustainability.  We ensure where possible, that there is minimal demand on the Earth’s natural resources.

We establish at the contract stage of each project what waste management resources are required.  A plan for recycling and waste prevention is prepared and implemented addressing the issues of  waste prevention, reuse of waste, recycling of waste and a reduction of toxic emissions.

We are committed to leading the Industry by minimizing the impact of our activities on the environment.  Where there is an opportunity, our purchasing department chooses recycled and sustainable products.  This can include the use of low carbon cement, natural materials for insulation and recycled concrete and plastic.

All site personnel are trained in the good practice of protecting the environment.  Any sub-contractor employed on site is notified in advance of their responsibility to remove their waste and debris from the location.  In all aspects of the business we promote the careful selection of materials which compliment our environment.

The key points of our strategy are to:

  • minimize waste by evaluating operations and ensuring they are as efficient as possible
  • minimize toxic emissions through the selection and use of its fleet and the source of its power requirement
  • actively promote re-use and recycling

We also pay careful attention to the control of waste management.  This can include the reduction and separation of waste and materials on site. Company policy also ensures that we only engage licensed waste management disposal companies to remove this waste.
