Carillion

Rating: Gold

Carillion is supporting WRAP’s commitment to halve waste to landfill by 2012 and all of its projects are ISO14001 accredited. Stuart Mee, group head of sustainability, says: “We are increasingly seeing our customers ask for energy-efficient buildings, so we incorporate renewable energy systems, including biomass boilers, wind turbines, photovoltaics and ground-source heat pumps.”

The company builds rainwater harvesting into its designs, with most sites using water recycling systems for vehicle washing and at other stages of the construction process. Waste on site is recycled and CO2 emissions were cut by 25 per cent in 2008.

The Carillion Natural Habitats Fund has raised a total of £220,000 to support 38 biodiversity projects across the UK. Many are located close to construction sites, and employees are encouraged to lend time or the use of labour-saving equipment to those working on conservation programmes.

Staff: 50,000 worldwide

Annual turnover: £5 billion globally

Highlights: All projects ISO 14001 accredited, CO2 emissions cut on site by 25 per cent last year.
