Macmahon is committed to integrating safety, environmental and social considerations into our procurement policy and practices and encouraging suppliers to adopt practices that minimise safety, environmental and social impacts.
There is a requirement during the conduct of procurement activities to identify the potential environmental opportunities, risks and impacts of goods or services selected for utilisation in the company’s business processes and to adopt measures to:
- realise those opportunities, manage those risks and enhance safety and protect the environment;
- encourage recycling and the re-use of materials and minimise waste;
- support effective use of scarce resources – including energy, water and materials; and
- consult, cooperate and coordinate actvities with other work health and safety duty holders such as suppliers, importers, manufacturers, installers, commissioners, designers etc.
We seek to conduct business with providers who have a demonstrated commitment to, and acceptable performance with, a systematic approach to environmental management.
