As a leading contractor, McLaren are committed to continuous environmental improvement, defined from a comprehensive 2017 baseline. We aim to embed environmental awareness in all of our activities both on the construction site and in our regional offices, and it is central to our design and procurement practices.


We recognise our responsibility to conduct our activities in a way that gives due consideration to our planet’s resources, both in the short and long term.

Our Planet Policy Objectives are focussed around three key areas of influence:

  • Minimising resource consumption
  • Promoting environmentally responsible design and operations
  • Driving a culture change throughout the built environment

Resource Consumption

To minimise resource consumption, we commit to:

  • Reduce carbon emissions associated with our business operations from an established 2017 baseline
  • Reduce waste generated at our construction sites and regional offices from an established 2017 baseline and improve diversion of waste from landfill
  • Employ energy and water efficient technology across all of our construction sites and regional offices

To promote environmentally responsible design and operations, we commit to:

  • Operate all of our sites in accordance with best practice environmental management techniques
  • Ensure all bulk materials are supplied with appropriate environmental certification
  • Promote innovative design, procurement and construction methods to minimise material use and reduce the embodied carbon of our construction projects
  • Provide comprehensive pre-construction environmental analysis for all major projects to identify opportunities for waste reduction, fewer vehicle movements and lower embodied carbon construction
