At BowdenCorp, we go above and beyond to provide solutions that maximise the economic, social, and environmental outcomes for our people, clients, suppliers, and the communities in which we operate.
We’re always looking for new ways to innovate our operations when it comes to matters of safety, equality, and our social and environmental responsibilities. Our system is certified in accordance with ISO standards – focusing on quality, safety, and the environment.
Waste & RecyclingWaste & Recycling
We ensure that your project is delivered with minimal waste and emissions, and environmentally friendly products that optimise a building's life cycle.
From early risk assessments, we tailor a comprehensive environmental management plan for each project to identify and provide risk minimisation and management solutions for expected environmental impacts arising from construction.
With the goal of minimising waste and directing usable resources away from landfill, BowdenCorp has also adopted a policy of reuse and recycling in the workplace. Currently, 90% of waste produced by BowdenCorp is recycled, and we prioritise recyclable materials in all our operations. Our aim is to have 95% of our waste recycled by 2025.
Environmental ImpactEnvironmental Impact
With a keen focus on promoting environmental awareness, minimising waste, preventing pollution, and limiting our impact
on the natural, built, and cultural environment, all our work complies with Environmental Protection Authority (EPA) guidelines and environmental legislation.
We are certified to the standard ISO 14001:2015 – Environmental Management Systems. We also foster a workplace culture of respect for the environment, while reinforcing the environmental obligations of our employees and contractors.
BowdenCorp complies with all legislative, contractual, and regulatory requirements concerning our environmental impact, and we maintain an environmental management system that guides all our business and decision-making processes. We also continually collect and analyse performance indicators and incident data in order to identify opportunities for improvement and respond to any environmental concerns that may arise.
Social ImpactSocial Impact
We regularly participate in a range of programs and partnerships so we can make a positive social impact within our business, the construction industry, and throughout society as a whole.
We achieve this through regular donations to projects, causes, and community organisations with a focus on health, sports, youth, and education. We also engage a range of health and wellbeing initiatives, including:
- Bluehats Suicide Prevention Program
- Count Me In
- The Victorian WorkWell Toolkit
Aiming to contribute to the economy of the regions in which we work, we strive, wherever possible, to engage local businesses, suppliers, and contractors, and to source local materials so that local communities and businesses can thrive. In accordance with the Victorian Industry Participation Policy, we also look to work with small to medium local enterprises, and to maximise our use of Australian and New Zealand products and services.
