Our world belongs to all of us. We are mindful of the impact our work has on the environment, and we take care to protect it through responsible operations practices as well as proactive efforts to reduce our overall footprint.
Advancing Our Environmental Commitment
As we build infrastructure to sustain future generations, we go about our work mindful of how our operations impact the planet. In 2021, we set a goal to reduce greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) 25% by 2030.
Our plan to reach this goal includes measuring our energy consumption and CO2 emissions, implementing strategies to reduce our overall GHG output, and reporting on progress. This impacts three main areas of our business – facilities, fleet, and field operations.
We are tracking and reporting Scope 1 & Scope 2 emissions data company-wide and executing a decarbonization strategy to reach our goal by 2030. Our current inventory and progress are reported in our Sustainability Report.
Our field operations follow all environmental regulations and minimize impacts to the natural environment by following proper procedures for waste handling and disposal, along with other responsible job site practices. Our Safety, Health, Environmental, and Quality function regularly audits all environmental practices in the field.
Centuri’s expansive fleet, including 7,000 on-road vehicles and equipment, is essential to providing exceptional service to our customers across North America. Through GPS systems installed on our fleet vehicles, along with our fleet utilization process and evaluation of fuel usage, we are tracking data with the aim to reduce our overall fleet emissions and optimize vehicle and equipment use across the company.
It’s incumbent on us to ensure responsible fleet management practices that mitigate negative impacts on the environment and protect employee and public safety.
To identify opportunities for greater energy efficiency and reduced usage, we review energy consumption at our major facilities and take environmental factors into consideration as part of our real estate strategy.
