Environment

As a responsible contractor, J Coffey takes environmental management very seriously and we appreciate just how easy it is for any contractor to have a detrimental impact on the local environment, ecology and people who live close to active sites.

We are accredited with ISO 14001:2004 & FSC Certification, currently implementing ISO 50001 for Carbon Emissions and BRE’s SmartWaste system for monitoring waste streams. In support of this we undertake routine and regular detailed environmental inspections of our live project sites. This not only monitors the environmental status of our projects, but more importantly provides a basis to promote continual improvement.

Across the business, we have followed an environmental procurement process that ensures all the materials we buy come from suppliers who practice high levels of environmental stewardship. We work hard to reduce waste through the careful selection of materials and components, and use recycled secondary aggregates and soil when possible.

Being environmentally aware also requires us to be mindful of our approach towards sustainability. This applies to everything we do and in every phase of our work, and you can find out more about our sustainability processes and culture by looking at the content in this link.
