Environment and sustainability
It's important that we rebuild our infrastructure sustainably and in an environmentally sensitive way. Though it can present us with complex challenges, minimising our environmental footprint has a high priority.
What is sustainability?
Sustainability is acting today with the future in mind. For our rebuild work, it means making sure our work sites can get back to the state we found them in, or better. When assessing sustainability, we pay particular attention to the before and after state of the natural and cultural environment.
As locals ourselves, we want to look after our city's environment. We have to live and breathe a culture of sustainability, so that we protect both our environment and heritage in the important rebuild work we do.
We comply with requirements and follow whatever good practices will least impact our environment. We obtain the correct consents to manage the risk of environmental and archaeological interference.
We use a variety of strategies to manage specific environmental and historical impact, from reducing noise to suppressing dust to being prepared for emergencies.
