Sustainability & Environment


We act today with the future in mind

Creative construction and sustainable solutions are fundamental when it comes to building future proofed infrastructure and resources for our communities. Ensuring a sustainable tomorrow for our teams, clients and the environment, means we must perform to the best of our ability today. McConnell Dowell is a progressive company.

We believe in empowering our employees to drive improvement in all areas of our business. Establishing a learning culture is our key focus.

We have shaped our systems in the areas of safety, environment and sustainability to make sure our accumulated knowledge is built on and transferred at all levels.

McConnell Dowell has a dynamic approach to accountability. Creating partnerships and maintaining an open dialogue with our clients is paramount. We take a proactive approach in meeting and exceeding benchmarks and expectations set by the construction industry.

We continue to grow our capabilities and performance

Our environmental commitment is second to none. On all our projects environmental management is everybody’s responsibility, regardless of their role and the nature or location of the projects.

We lead by example in promoting environmental management. We empower our people and teams to be their best and our people are actively encouraged to be creative and innovative in approaching environmental management. We have a dedicated team of environmental professionals that actively supports all staff in achieving the high environmental standards expected. We do this with a positive and collaborative approach and a focus on accountable leadership; reducing emissions; managing efficient use of energy, resources and project materials; minimising waste; and through responsible biodiversity management of local flora and fauna.

We take on a “one team” approach with our clients and partners in our commitment to the environment. Our method has created a framework for our environmental standards which have been recognised throughout the industry.


Environmental Monitoring

Under the NSW Protection of the Environment Legislation Amendment Act 2011 (POELA Act) several changes to the Protection of the Environment Operations Act 1997 (POEO Act) were introduced, including a new requirement that holders of an Environment Protection Licence make their pollution monitoring data publicly available in a timely manner and are required to prepare, implement and test pollution-incident management plans for each of their licensed activities.

This page provides access to the pollution monitoring data and Pollution Incident Response Management Plans for projects with the Environmental Protection Licences held by McConnell Dowell Constructors.
