Recognizing that our construction industries have a direct impact on our environment, Bird Heavy Civil Ltd. is committed to a proactive Environmental Policy that promotes the practice of sustainable development that meets our needs today while taking into account the needs for tomorrow.
Believing in the philosophy of Reduce, Reuse and Recycle, we recognize that we have a responsibility to minimize, and eliminate where possible, the impact of the waste, emissions and green house gases that are generated as a result of our construction activities.
While the first step to continuously improving environmental performance is awareness, we can improve the efficient use of resources and thus minimize any potential negative impacts our activities may have on the environment. Such is accomplished through the education of using best practices to prevent and reduce pollution and waste. In addition, by assessing our impact on our communities' ecosystems and evaluating future risks, we design work methodologies that mitigate the impact our projects may have on the environment today and its potential effects in the future.
The development of the Environmental Protection Plan is intended to present a systematic and organized approach to the protection and preservation of the environment. Adherence to this Plan ensures that all projects are completed with the utmost regard for environmental awareness. Complete and active participation in this Plan by all employees at every level is necessary for the environmental excellence the company expects. Federal, Provincial and Municipal Environmental Codes of Practice and legislation as well as client standards also govern our environmental initiatives.
To further illustrate our commitment to sustainable development, Bird Heavy Civil Ltd. is fully committed to supporting the communities in which we operate. We believe in participating in community sponsored events and contributing to both charitable and social initiatives. Fuelled by innovative training and hiring practices, particularly of under represented groups; Bird Heavy Civil provides an opportunity for economic growth and employment that produces a higher quality of life and social progress. Just as we are committed to protecting today’s environment for tomorrow’s generations, we are also committed to the economic and social vitality of the communities in which we operate.
