Sustainability underpins our long-term success as a business and is guided by our strategy and supported by good business practice.

Our belief is that for longer-term value creation, we must balance financial performance with our obligations to all our stakeholders, including clients, customers, employees, supply chain partners and the communities and environment in which we operate.

To achieve project-specific sustainability goals, we work with clients and stakeholders to fully understand their needs and engage resourcefully and collaboratively to implement an agreed approach to achieve these objectives.

It’s important that all project stakeholders are aligned in their collective pursuit of the best results, and we make it happen through effective communication and great leadership.

Our Sustainability Framework

Our company policies, business management systems, and core values form the strategic framework for guiding sustainable business practice at Groundex.

Central to our practice is the principle of zero harm, which ensures we create an environment that supports the health and wellbeing of our people, minimises the impact that our business has on the environment and advances the communities we work in.

Sustainability is a strategic priority in our business and we continually pursue opportunities to improve our practice, measurement and reporting.

Governance and Ethical Conduct

Our approach to sustainability is underpinned by a robust corporate governance framework. This framework provides strategic direction for the responsible and sustained growth of our businesses.

Ertech undertakes all business in accordance with a business Code of Conduct. This guides business conduct for all employees and those who work for the business, ensuring that our governance and ethical standards are adhered to, and deals with issues such as Modern Slavery and ethical management of the supply chain.

Environmental Management

We seek to minimise our impact on the environment in which we work and place a strong emphasis on meeting and exceeding our environmental compliance obligations.

The management of our environmental impact is fundamental to how we deliver services and is embedded in our overall risk management framework.

Our environmental management system ensures a comprehensive, systematic and consistent approach to identifying and controlling environmental hazards and risks, and monitoring our environmental performance across the organisation.

Health and Safety Management

Groundex is committed to providing and maintaining safe work sites for employees, subcontractors and others affected by our work.

We believe that all accidents are preventable and do everything to ensure health and people’s safety is at the forefront of how we operate.

Our commitment to the health and safety of our people and our communities is expressed in strong safety leadership, effective engagement with our workforce and stakeholders, and a continual focus on managing risks and wellbeing in the workplace.

Working with our People

Groundex is a workplace that acknowledges the unique value each individual brings to our team.

We strive for inclusiveness and have built a flexible work environment where people are fulfilled and challenged, and their needs are met.

We provide equal opportunity to our employees to enhance their career with Groundex. We do this by ensuring they have the right skills, are provided opportunities to develop new capabilities, and surrounded by a healthy workplace culture that is collaborative and supportive.
