Sustainability or sustainable development is defined as 'development which meets the needs of the present, without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs'.
For Clough, sustainability means delivering excellence in economic, social and environmental performance. We view sustainability as a journey, where along the way we create positive benefits for our stakeholders while reducing any negative impact.
The health, safety and wellbeing of our employees and the protection of the environment and the communities in which we work continue to be core values within all our operations. Our Target Zero program, which encapsulates an incident and injury free environment, involves all employees and enables each person to contribute to the safe delivery of our projects.
Aligning with the Indigenous component of Clough’s five pillar Corporate Social Responsibility program, The Clough Foundation supports Indigenous organisations, Clontarf Foundation and Role Models and Leaders Australia (RMLA) – Girls Academy.
Clough has working relationships with a broad base of qualified Indigenous suppliers in Australia and Papua New Guinea as part of our Indigenous Relations Policy. These businesses source local content, providing benefits to indigenous communities, and supply recycled, ethically sourced and sustainable products.
