Pomerleau is proud to announce that the company has recently certified its environmental management system which covers all our operations from coast-to-coast. ISO 14001:2015 is one of the most internationally recognized environmental standards that an organization can use to enhance its environmental performance and manage its environmental responsibilities. This certification comes in wake of the release of our first Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) report and platform, Perspective.
This certification is the culmination of over two years of joint work with Operations to structure and standardize the way we manage the environment on our projects.
Geneviève Roy,Vice President of Environment and Sustainable Development
ISO 14001:2015 includes a set of intended outcomes which include:
Enhancement of environmental performance.
Fulfillment of compliance obligations.
Achievement of environmental objectives.
For our projects, this allows us to ensure our compliance and align our practices with the most rigorous in the industry. We owe it to our clients and to all our stakeholders.
Krista Gill,Sustainability and Commissioning Manager
Being a part of continuous improvement dynamic allows us to increase the environmental performance of our logistics centers as well. This daily challenge leads us to optimize our procurement, storage, maintenance, and shipping processes.
Our commitment to excellence and raising the industry standard has allowed us to become one of the few construction companies to certify all its operations from coast-to-coast. From Victoria to St. John's, we maintain that standard and are committed to continually improve our performance.
Renaud Gagné,Environmental and Sustainable Development Coordinator
Last year, we launched our first ESG report and platform. Perspective outlines Pomerleau’s ESG strategy, objectives, and targets. The priorities outlined by the platform are aligned with the United Nations sustainable development goals.
In terms of climate change and the circular economy, we aim to assess a project’s value through its carbon footprint and maximize the lifespan of goods and materials. As we continue to respond to the increased demand for the construction of sustainable buildings, we are guided by our environmental management system.
Our next report will be released in early June. Stay tuned to learn more about the evolution of our environmental commitments.
