We have a multi-faceted range of sustainability initiatives centered around our waste management, energy consumption and environmental emissions:
Landfill - We have a mature program of implemented “beneficial re-use” strategies that divert around 39% of our waste away from landfills.
Energy - For years we have employed energy reduction strategies. This is constantly evolving in line with environmental findings.
Emissions - We have state of the art trade-waste treatment facilities that ensure our waste water is treated beyond the standards set by the water authorities. Our goal is to place no additional burden on the NSW Government water treatment infrastructure or the environment.
We are firm believers in supporting our community. Therefore we give our support to the local community by providing approximately 1000 local jobs in the Sydney, Gosford and Brisbane regions.
We also pride ourselves on sponsoring the local football clubs as well endorsing our colleagues individual social responsibility by giving them paid time off throughout the year for these occasions (eg. Helping in the school canteens, giving blood, working for a charity group, etc).
B&J has worked collaboratively with Achieve Australia to support disabled people to find meaningful work and support them in their everyday lives generally. We recently sponsored a hole at their annual golf day which included registration of a team of golfers to participate on the day. Participation in events as such enables us to interact with the community and further understand how we can make a difference.
