Stepping Up on Sustainability
As Fulton Hogan approaches our 90th year in business, we operate in a rapidly changing world. There is growing expectation for businesses to play their part in addressing some of the world’s most persistent and growing issues of social inequality, climate change, and loss of biodiversity within our environment.
Fulton Hogan has always contributed to the communities we work in. This is consistent with our family values. It’s a natural part of what we do, investing further, and always challenging ourselves to do more.
We create opportunities for career and personal growth, and strive to create safe, healthy and fulfilling work places.
We provide opportunities for people from all walks of life, and in places where quality jobs and rewarding work can be limited.
Our Innovate Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) is a demonstration of Fulton Hogan’s strong continuous commitment to reconciliation in Australia. Fulton Hogan’s vision for reconciliation is for active, genuine and respectful engagement with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities and peoples in all regions to support social and economic equality through employment and procurement in our infrastructure projects and operations.
Quality infrastructure can help reduce the impact of humans on the environment. It’s also vital to keep impacts to a minimum, as we work to deliver quality infrastructure.
We seek to reduce our impact on the environment, and regenerate healthy new ecosystems. We look to partner with others to lift the standards of our industry, and show customers lower-impact ways of delivering infrastructure.
Running a strong and successful business means we can support our local communities, and keep creating opportunities for others to achieve their goals.
We are locals, and seek to give back to the communities we live and work in.
We’re proud to play a part in making our communities better and we feel privileged that they allow us to do so. We invest heavily to encourage wellbeing, diversity, environment, education and innovation. This sees us:
- Employing graduates and young people within our communities
- Offering a range of scholarships or traineeships designed to champion engineering
- Building community partnerships through sponsorship of key initiatives with our people donating time, money and services to local causes
- Maximising social procurement opportunities to create positive social change
- Partnering with indigenous groups to ensure their involvement in our good work.
As we evolve responsibly, we always look for smarter and better ways of doing things. It’s this attitude – and our willingness to roll our sleeves up and give anything a go – that has taken us from humble beginnings to progressive, proactive industry leaders, open to new ideas and new ways of doing things.
