Sustainability

Creating resilient places and positive legacies

CPB Contractors understands that with every project we deliver we have the opportunity, together with our clients, partners and the communities where we work, to build a better future.

Our sustainability approach is based on five priority areas where our influence and impact are greatest, ensuring our local actions support the global ambitions of the UN Sustainable Development Goals and the Paris Climate Agreement to address global warming. 

GHG Emission Reduction

Reduce GHG Emissions to minimise the climate impact of our operations.

Sustainable Design

Design for resilience, adaptation and environmental and social benefits.

Sustainable Construction

 

Manage our resources and activities to minimise impact and enhance the natural environment.

Community Legacy

 

Implement positive legacies to benefit communities where we work.

Workforce Legacy and Safety

 

Foster talent, diversity, inclusion and wellbeing to develop a high performing and sustainable workforce.

 

We are working to achieve the following sustainability outcomes across our business. 

Our environmental sustainability targets include:

  • 20% reduction in Scope 1 & 2 emissions by 2025, from a 2019 base
  • Net zero Scope 1 & 2 emissions by 2038
  • Net zero Scope 3 emissions by 2045
  • 90% of project waste diverted from landfill (excl. contaminated waste)
  • 10% of project water recycled/reused

Our net zero approach:

  • Avoid unnecessary energy or material use
  • Reduce emissions by using efficient and low emission equipment
  • Replace high emission materials and energy with low emission and renewable alternatives
  • Offset emissions by purchasing carbon credits

Scope 1 emissions are primarily from fuels we consume.

Scope 2 emissions are primarily from the electricity we consume.

Scope 3 emissions are the indirect emissions associated with our activities including material manufacturing, waste disposal, transport and travel.

Our circular economy approach:

  • Avoid activities that generate unnecessary waste
  • Replace raw materials with recycled alternatives
  • Reuse & Recover construction and demolition waste
  • Recycle waste and materials
