At Leo Lynch, our core value of “Take care” reflects the deep consideration we give to the environment and the lives of our people and communities. We address sustainability on two fronts: via the big moves – operational carbon reduction and embodied carbon in our projects, for example – and the small but crucial actions we take every day, such as limiting plastic and building awareness across our teams. 

Our clients are some of the largest and most influential organisations in the world, and therefore, they also have a significant responsibility to monitor and diminish their adverse impact on the world. As their partners, we work with them to ensure we’re meeting both our environmental objectives and theirs through the use of “green” suppliers and sustainable materials and transparent waste, energy usage and LEED reporting.

Our long-term goal is to continue to reduce Leo Lynch’s carbon footprint by being less dependent on energy supply, equipment and vehicles operating on fossil fuels. We monitor and measure our success against these aims, as well as our overall environmental performance, through compliance auditing and management review.

Environmental management

We operate an ISO 14001:2015 accredited Environmental Management System (EMS) which forms part of our “Zero Quest – Zero Harm & Zero Defects” programme. Our EMS ensures we conduct our activities in an environmentally responsible manner that both protects our employees and supply chain, and the natural environments in which we operate.

Our approach to the environment includes the following commitments: 

  • Minimise waste streams by reusing materials where possible
  • Minimise release of inert gases to atmosphere
  • Reduce energy consumption on site: power, water etc.
  • Eliminate use of chemicals where possible
  • “Clean as you go” programmes for site operatives 
  • Use of chemical storage cabinets / SDS’s
  • Weekly environmental inspections and auditing
