British Builders has today committed to eliminating waste and carbon from its operations by 2025, well ahead of the Government's own environmental targets. The company has committed to three bold targets to help ensure it does zero harm to the environment:

  1. Zero waste from British Builders operations by 2025.  We aim to reduce and then eliminate the production of all waste created from our on-site operations.

  2. Zero carbon from British Builders operations and operational vehicles by 2025. We aim to reduce carbon emissions from Scope 1 and 2 operations and to become carbon neutral.

  3. Positive impact on nature from all operations. We aim to enhance the natural environment wherever we operate and to increase the value and community benefit of natural environments.

    To achieve this, British Builders will take a number of meaningful and challenging actions, for example switching to an all-electric commercial vehicle fleet, eliminating single use plastic from its operations and supply chain, investing in sustainable building techniques, organising sustainability placements for graduate and apprenticeship staff, planting up to 5,000 trees annually and ensuring that all our sites or frameworks deliver at least one nature enhancement project such as local conservation work.

    British Builders has a track record of success in addressing challenging and complex issues. BB has achieved industry-leading performance in health and safety, following the launch in 2016 of its ambitious five-year programme to achieve Zero Harm in safety by 2020. The target-led programme led to a sea-change in culture and behaviour and a huge drop in the frequency rate of accidents (AFR), with the last recorded figures showing the RIDDOR AFR down 26 per cent from 2017 at 0.035 equivalent to a 70 per cent drop over five years.

Donald Smith, Managing Director, said:

We have established bold, ambitious, deliberately stretching targets for creating zero harm to the environment by 2025 because we believe that by committing to something extraordinary, we can achieve something extraordinary.  Together with our partners, we will reduce waste and carbon, and improve our natural environment for generations to come.

We have a responsibility to reduce and eventually to reverse the impact were having on our planet and we are determined that everyone in the British Builders family will do what is necessary to make a real and lasting difference.
