We are committed to minimizing the impact of our operations through the utilization of best management practices and by leveraging the education, commitment, and dedication of our team members. We adhere to all regulatory requirements and fulfill the environmental protection commitments.
For each project we undertake, PTW develops project specific Environmental Work Plan (EWP), which is presented to our clients for review and approval prior to any work being performed. We also ensure that all supervisory personnel complete our EWP training. PTW has established general environmental rules and requirements that aim to prevent pollution, water and air contamination, harm to wildlife, and improper waste disposal.
We ensure that our waste is appropriately managed prior to completing all tasks, and prior to handover to our customers.
PTW is committed to meeting these waste management objectives:
- Establish ourselves as a leader in the reduction, reuse, and recycling of our waste while creating an operation that is as waste free as possible.
- Protect human health and the environment from any waste related hazards.
- Minimize the generation of industrial waste through all aspects of design, material selection, production and the use of goods and services.
In early 2023, we engaged an independent expert, PwC, to help us compile our first Greenhouse Gas (GHG) inventory. Our goal was to establish a comprehensive understanding of our Scope 1 and 2 greenhouse gas emissions, baseline measurements for setting reduction targets and implementing effective mitigation strategies for the future. The largest source of our emissions (59%) is from mobile combustion, our fleet. One step we are taking this year towards reducing this figure is by actively addressing truck idling times. We are also reviewing our electricity use at each facility to identify where electricity consumption can be optimized.
PTW is committed to mitigating any environmental effects our operations may have on both communities and the environment. We strive to be responsible business citizens by partnering with clients to minimize our overall impact in all business activities. All PTW’s operational areas are expected to represent a responsible, safe and courteous performance.
Examples of managing PTW’s operational impacts include:
- Dust Management
- Traffic Control
- Noise Control
- Worksite Entry
- Road and Lease Use
- Neighbour Relations
