Providing a positive contribution to the social and economic elements of sustainable construction, and conducting business in such a way that minimizes any potential adverse effects on the environment.
As an ISO14001 accredited organization with a formalised Environmental Management System, we stand committed to working alongside our clients toward common environmental and sustainable targets.
The key principals that LCL adopts to minimise the construction footprint and environmental impacts are within an Environmental Management Plan (EMP) that is delivered for all projects by the Environmental and Sustainability Manager and implemented by the Project Team.
The EMP for the project aims to identify, mitigate and monitor potential environmental issues that may arise during the construction phase, and ensure compliance with all relevant authorizations, contractual requirements, and resource consents. Additionally, it demonstrates the key environmental and sustainability drivers that LCL implements for each project.
