Pomerleau unveils Perspective, its ESG performance platform
2021 has given us the opportunity to take a new look at the construction industry, to re-evaluate our priorities and draw a path to achieve them. That's why we are extremely proud to launch Perspective, our new environmental, social and governance (ESG) performance platform.
The long-term impact of our actions is now the guideline for sustainable business success. The well-being of the planet and communities is a key issue in moving our industry in the right direction. The industry is at a crossroads. It must evolve to be more aligned with current and future environmental and social issues, which are constantly becoming more complex.
Francis Pomerleau,Chief Executive – National Strategies
Perspective is more than a vision, it's a roadmap to help transform the construction industry in a proactive and transparent way, as we have always done. It’s a guide to building an engaged, inclusive, and innovative community. It’s a path that will lead us to share our solutions – for the planet and for society – with everyone who would like to do the same.
Pomerleau is a forward-looking company conscious of environmental and social issues. Leaders in the construction industry have an important role to play in this transition to a Net Zero world. Our entire industry needs to work together to accelerate our transformation to ensure we do not compromise quality of life for future generations.
