RJ McLeod

Environmental and Energy Policy

As a civil engineering contractor, RJ McLeod is committed to promoting sustainability and protection of the environment in which we operate. Our strategy is based on a partnership approach in conjunction with our clients, designers, supply chain and other interested parties, as a team, to obtain solutions that benefit all.

Our activities are organised and managed through an Environmental Management System designed around the ISO 14001 Environmental Management Standard and the ISO 50001 Energy Management Standard. Our
most significant long term impact on the environment is the use of fossil fuels in our construction operations. We are therefore committed to carrying out the construction process as efficiently as possible.

In the implementation of our Environmental Management System, we will:

Legal and other Requirements

  • Comply with relevant legal and other requirements


  • Educate, train and motivate employees to carry out their activities in an environmentally responsible manner in accordance with our environmental rules

Construction and Service Provision

  • Minimise the impact of our operations on the environment, ecology and amenity of our project sites
  • Seek to reduce the consumption of primary materials in all operations, re-use rather than dispose whenever possible and promote recycling
  • Develop, implement and monitor site-specific control measures in order to prevent pollution


We will improve the effectiveness of the environmental management system through the analysis of data from:

  • Internal and external audit results
  • Customer feedback
  • Environmental incidents

In addition we will:

  • Establish performance indicators aimed at improving performance in the use of our significant energy sources

This policy will be communicated through publication in our Starter Packs for new employees, on our
noticeboards and our website. It will also be available to interested parties on request.
