We recognise that infrastructure related services can make a major contribution towards creating a more sustainable world.
Effective environmental management and sustainability are key principles of our strategy and we practice them throughout our day-to-day operations.
Milestone Infrastructure plays a critical role in maintaining and improving the nation’s transport infrastructure. As a result of our activities there is a constant interaction with the natural environment around us; we aim to not only minimise the impact of our operations but wherever possible, leave a lasting positive legacy.
Our goal is to become an industry leader in the way we manage the environmental impact of our operations during their entire lifecycle with a commitment to reducing their effects on the planet.
We are dedicated to proactive environmental management at all levels, positively influencing and working with key stakeholders, especially our clients and our supply chain. We provide sustainable solutions, implementing greener ways of working while securing efficiencies and best value for our clients.
We recognise the challenges faced by our clients to reduce and tackle the impact of climate change and the loss of biodiversity. Working collaboratively with our clients we are supporting the delivery of climate emergency declarations and net-zero carbon targets.
We are actively working to reduce carbon emissions associated with the infrastructure assets we build and maintain by implementing innovative solutions. As an example, we are using hydrotreated vegetable oil (HVO) diesel in our fleet to reduce carbon emissions by more than 90 per cent and reducing harmful exhaust emissions from the vehicles. We are at the forefront of trialling innovative low emission plant and equipment, such as electric excavators and road sweepers as well as reducing our reliance on fossil fuels to power our sites and compounds through the use of renewable energy generated on site.
We have a dedicated team of skilled environmental professionals who support both our projects and our clients, delivering best value in a range of specialist and technical subjects such as environmental assessment and design, carbon, biodiversity and waste management.
Working closely with our supply chain, design teams and clients, we bring innovation and new products to projects and share outcomes across our business.
Milestone Infrastructure operates permitted waste and materials recycling facilities, reducing the amount of waste disposed on our projects as well as implementing a circular economy approach to infrastructure maintenance.
