With latest figures showing that on a global scale, buildings and construction are responsible for almost 40% of all carbon emissions, and the construction sector uses 50% of all materials extracted from the earth, it has become imperative that companies work to improve the sustainability of their operations.
Here at Brett Landscaping we are committed to our mission for positive change through sustainable operations, resilient supply chains, and our commitment to driving social and environmental change.
We have introduced the Greenscape strategy to give direction to this mission. The strategy consists of core initiatives ranging from environmental to also include social and economic factors.
Key environmental considerations for Brett
In addition to the above, we have increased our use of recycled concrete and water, we have 3 weirs and a silt-buster at the Cliffe site, and we have also introduced rainwater harvesting at our Poole site.
Sustainability plan for the future
Our current plans include further pollution reduction from our manufacturing and logistics operations, while continuing to monitor and reduce our use of carbon.
Packaging is also a big focus for us, and we have committed to further reduce the amount of plastic used and review the grades of polymers over the next two years.
In 2023 we intend to expand our renewable energy projects over the other sites across the Brett Group.
We have built some strong relationships to assist us in our mission, creating sustainable partnerships with MPA Precast, Interpave, and The Pallet Loop.
Brett actively monitors the supply chain to ensure that our suppliers are working to provide a moral code for the treatment of workers across the World.
Our projects are compliant with RSP guidelines, and we have maintained excellent status against BES 6001 Responsible Sourcing of Construction products.
