We understand our responsibility to the environment and are committed to continually improving how we not only protect the environment, but enhance it through our projects too.

Environment

We are committed to continually improving how we not only protect the environment, but enhance it through our projects too.

Our company vision is to achieve zero environmental incidents and legal breaches on all of our projects and at all premises.

We are committed to operating in an environmentally responsible manner, and believe that effective stewardship of both the natural and built environment is essential for maintaining JN Bentley as a sustainable business.

There are three impact areas on which we focus our efforts and measure performance:

Energy and emissions

We continue to actively monitor our impact on the environment and see energy consumption and the associated emissions as one key area of focus.

This particular area can be broken down into embodied emissions, such as concrete and steel; indirect emissions, such as grid supplied utilities; and direct emissions, such as on site generation, travel and transportation.

Waste management

We aim to divert over 90% of the waste we generate from landfill, and by working proactively, following the waste hierarchy, we achieved this again in 2016.

Pollution prevention

By encouraging employees to report incidents we increase awareness and gather valuable data that will help us to prevent incidents from happening again.

In 2016, performance improved significantly: 3,483 reports were logged, a total up 37% on 2015. Reports came from a broader range of people than ever before, which demonstrated an increase in awareness across the business.
