Environmental Management System

CSCI’s Commitment

  • Complying with statutory, contractual and other requirements in all respects
  • Preventing environmental pollution
  • Reducing construction wastes
  • Minimizing the consumption of natural resources
  • Improving its overall performance

We have established and continues to improve the Group’s environmental management system in accordance with ISO 14001, integrating environmental management into our general policies and daily operations. We pledge to avoid pollution, reduce construction waste, reduce natural resource consumption, comply with environmental laws and related contractual terms while continuously improving environmental performance and striving to reduce or eliminate the negative impact of operations on the environment.

Through the environmental management system, the Group specifies the leadership function, and the responsibilities and authority of employees involved in environmental management. We also require all units to analyse the main environmental factors in their operations and keep up-to-date with the latest development of local environmental regulations and standards. Environmental targets and indicators are developed to formulate a well-directed environmental plan and allocate appropriate budgets for environmental measures to continuously improve the Group’s environmental performance.

Case Study

1.Environmental Management of CSCHK

CSCHK formulated the Environmental Management Manual and Energy Management Manual based on ISO14001:2015 and ISO50001:2011 standards, to provide the relevant management suggestions with regard to aspects such as policy formulation, implementation and operation, inspection and assessment, and employee participation. Under the leadership of the Integrated Management Committee, CSCHK also continuously formulates a series of key environmental targets and indicators with regard to areas such as consumption of electricity, water and construction materials, and develop comprehensive action plan to realise these goals. At the same time, CSCHK arranges designated personnel to be in charge of the data collection, aggregation and reporting of each project and department to measure the progress of reaching targets.
