Sisk is proud to be a member of EV100. This is a global initiative bringing together companies committed to accelerating the transition to electric vehicles (EVs) and making electric transport the new normal by 2030.
Since committing to electric vehicles in 2019 Sisk has made significant strides forward. We have installed fast chargers at our offices in Dublin, Cork, Galway and Warrington in the UK. We are well on our way to meeting our target of 100 electric fleet vehicles by 2023.
We are committed to make energy efficiency a culture within our business and become the most energy efficient building contractor in Ireland.
Sisk effectively measures energy consumption and performance and have pledged to half our energy consumption. We have mandated that all electricity supplies to our offices and sites are procured from renewable sources and the installation of smart meters on all our sites
We are taking steps to ensure this for example,
Sisk ensures that decisions taken regarding the procurement and engagement of any organisations, individuals, goods or services are governed by integrating environmental, legal, social and economic considerations into all stages of the procurement process.
Our procurement teams actively seek to collaborate with clients, consultants, specialist contractors and suppliers to develop integrated supply chains which respect biodiversity and human rights and promote fair employment practices.
We ensure due consideration is made throughout the procurement process to benefit the health, safety and wellbeing of all stakeholders including the natural environment.
Obtaining a commitment from Grafton, Ireland’s largest builders merchants, to obtain FSC Certification and supply our projects exclusively with sustainable timber.
• Achieving an embodied carbon saving of 96% - by implementing a GGBS cement substitute for concrete across our projects.
• Acquiring Vision Built, an off-site fabrication business of innovative, sustainable and recyclable steel. We aim to grow this business for use across all of our projects.
Sisk forecasts, continually monitors and targets waste reductions throughout construction from project inception to completion. We engage with our supply chain to identify and target reductions in waste stream generation.
We provide effective and progressive management of waste on-site through the use of supplier take-backs and recycling services.
Our site teams engage with first class waste contractors with advanced systems to ensure Sisk waste is expertly processed following the waste hierarchy for reuse, recycling and recovery prior to disposal as a last resort.
