Klohn Crippen Berger releases 2013 Sustainability Report

June 23, 2014

2013_Sustainability_Report_Cover_for-newsitem Klohn Crippen Berger (KCB) has issued its second Sustainability Report. The company launched its Sustainability Initiative in 2012 and released its first report in May 2013. The Initiative is led by KCB’s Global Sustainability Committee, which is made up of a diverse group of employees who represent the countries and industries in which we work. As a group, they bring a holistic approach to sustainable business practices applied in the office, in the field and in the community. “I am proud of the progress demonstrated in our second Sustainability Report,” said Len Murray, President.  “In our first year, we started to build the foundation of our sustainability program and selected the Global Reporting Initiative as the framework to measure our progress. We learned many things as we looked closely at our operations through the lens of sustainability, assisted by advice from all levels of the organization including the Global Sustainability Committee, our corporate services group and our technical staff. Now that we have completed two reports, we have an excellent baseline to measure future performance.” As part of the company’s on-going commitment to sustainable practices, KCB recently implemented an Integrated Management System (IMS). In April 2014, BSI Canada recommended KCB for registration to the ISO 14001 and OHSAS 18001 standards. These new certifications combined with the company’s long-standing QMS will provide the framework for our IMS consisting of quality, health and safety, and environment. “It is in the work we do with our clients that we have the greatest opportunity to develop sustainable solutions. Our clients face an increasing challenge to address the growing body of international best practices covering a broad range of sustainability goals. This is particularly true in the resource sector, where building community trust and responsible environmental management are critical to our clients’ success,” said Len. “We can help by bringing into focus the way our designs enhance our clients’ sustainability goals and by empowering our professional staff to improve on ways to manage environmental risks and provide solutions for socio-economic development.” About Klohn Crippen Berger: Klohn Crippen Berger is an international engineering, geoscience and environmental consulting firm with 12 offices located in Canada, Australia, South America and England.
