Balfour Beatty Construction

Sustainable development means making better use of the planet's finite resources. By leading on environmental issues such as energy and waste, we are reducing our carbon footprint and helping our customers reduce their own impacts.

We're doing this by:

Meeting our goal of reducing Scope 1 and 2 Greenhouse gas emissions by 5% from 2013
Meeting our waste diversion rate of 55% from 2013
Increasing the goal to 75% by 2015

Some of the ways we assist our customers in saving costs and meeting their Sustainability goals include

  • Minimizing waste over the life cycle of assets
  • Increased use of recycled materials in construction
  • Enhancing habitat for ecological resources
  • Improving our own performance in areas such as carbon and waste reduction also reduces our own costs, which can be passed on to the customer.

  • We employ more than 350 active LEED Accredited Professionals across the United States
  • We’re listed as one of the top 10 Green Contractors by Engineering News-Record magazine
  • Our portfolio includes more than $12 billion (22 million square feet) in construction of sustainable facilities whether scored by LEED, Energy Star, or other rating systems.
