Company wide policies supporting our sustainability agenda

Every day we demonstrate our commitment to ISO 14001, reducing our waste, and the delivery of energy efficient buildings to Code for Sustainable Homes and BREEAM standards.

Our sustainability agenda has never been so strong. From pollution control to responsible sourcing, Higgins Construction takes the environmental responsibilities of construction seriously. We work hard to ensure that our policies not only support, but often exceed the regulatory requirements stipulated by the International Organisation for Standardisation (ISO) for sustainability.

Environmental Policy

We aim to minimise environmental impact through compliance, innovation, training and environmental management systems.

Responsible Sourcing Policy

We spend millions every year and consider the environmental impact of every purchasing decision we make.

Pollution Control Policy (Water)

We take precautions to ensure the complete protection of watercourses and ground water against pollution.

Pollution Control Policy (Air)

National air quality objectives influence the measures we undertake to control air pollution on our sites.

Complaints Policy

We are committed to delivering the highest quality service possible at all times so we have procedures in place if complaints do arise.

Quality Policy

We are acknowledged as one of the leading names for quality and value in education and healthcare construction and our commitment is demonstrated through the Higgins Management System.

Sustainable Development Policy

We are committed to delivering quality community developments which address the needs of both today’s and future generations.

Anti-bribery Policy

We are committed to promoting and maintaining the highest level of ethical standards in all our business activities and have a zero tolerance policy towards bribery.

Pollution Control Policy (Noise)

We recognise that some of the operations and processes involved in delivering our projects have an adverse impact in relation to noise pollution but we take steps to minimize them as much as possible.
