Sustainability

Comdain has a long history of working in partnership with our clients and stakeholders to deliver reliable, safe and high quality infrastructure and maintenance services. We have always taken a long-term view of our relationships with both our clients and our people –  we recognise they underpin the long-term success of our business.

In late 2009, we embarked on a process to formally articulate and adopt the principles that underpin this approach and challenge ourselves to continuously improve the overall sustainability of the business to complement and support our operating and growth strategy.

Comdain Infrastructure’s Sustainability Policy outlines the company’s vision, objectives and actions for achieving our aspiration to be a responsible, sustainable business. Accountability for implementing this policy lies with our leadership team who ensure our sustainability responsibilities are incorporated into our business planning and operations with clear and measurable actions.

Sustainability aspirations

We aim to be:

  • An employer of choice, who recognises and values our people and provides a safe and stimulating environment in which they can develop and make the most of their skills.
  • An exemplary corporate citizen who is socially and environmentally responsible and seeks to go beyond a compliance culture towards commitment in every activity that we undertake.
  • An organisation that is honest, open, fair, respectful and consultative in the way we interact with our community and provides opportunities for our people to make beneficial contributions in the communities in which they live and work.
  • A business that achieves success through being customer focussed, delivering reliable and quality services and continuously seeking innovation.

Sustainability measurement framework

Our aim is to be regarded as a sustainability leader in our industry and we have incorporated a comprehensive action plan into our business planning and operations. We are committed to measuring ourselves and monitoring our progress.
