Corporate Social Responsibility

Building Futures

We are constantly thinking ahead. Looking further and recognizing that what we do today shapes and impacts tomorrow. We work to build and create lasting tangible value that sets standards, and improves life and lives in the communities where we build and the environment we all share. Working safely, resposibily and collaboratively with all stakeholders is our highest priority because futures - and the future - depend on it.

Our Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) approach - Building Futures - is guided by four pillars that effectively govern the entirety of our business: Community, Environment, Workplace and Marketplace. 

Community

We invest in the communities in which we operate through engagement, sponsorship, and volunteerism. We maximize impact by focusing our efforts on Healthcare, Education, Children & Family, Underprivileged, Indigenous, and Industry-based initiatives.

Our Focus Areas:

  • Community Development / Engagement
  • Employee Involvement
  • Brand Stewardship

Environment

We continuously look for opportunities to minimize the impact of our activities on the environment and surrounding communities through environmental stewardship, sustainable resource management, and the promotion or pollution prevention.

Our Focus Areas:

  • Environmental Stewardship
  • Sustainable Resource Management
  • Pollution Prevention

Workplace

We strive to create a safe, healthy and satisfying workplace for our employees through program and policies that enforce equal opportunities and recognition. We implement responsible labour relations to improve business outcomes and organizational performance through development programs.

Our Focus Areas:

  • Safety, health & Wellness
  • Indigenous Affairs/Diversity
  • Human Rights/Labour Relations
  • Financial Stability
  • Human Resources

Marketplace

We are committed to upholding the highest standards of corporate governance and ethics, and strive to create positive economic opportunities through our business. We comply with all relevant and applicable laws, regulations and industry standards in the jurisdictions we operate, and implement socially responsible supply chain practices.

Our Focus Areas:

  • Sustainable Suply Chain
  • Corporate Ethics
  • Stakeholder Engagement
  • Sustainable Projects
