Melbourne Pipelines is exploring opportunities to complete construction projects in a more sustainable fashion to minimise our ecological footprint.
As encouraged by YVW, Melbourne Pipelines have developed a greenhouse gas strategy to become greenhouse gas neutral in all construction operations . As part of this increased environmental awareness Melbourne Pipelines have introduced or are investigating the following measures:
Use Powershop (100% carbon neutral) for all electricity and gas at the yard, office and workshop.
Office paper and cardboard recycling.
Recycling bins at construction sites.
Energy efficient globes.
Using recycled water for our drill rigs.
Silt protection of waterways.
Becoming 100% greenhouse gas neutral in all construction operations.
Coffee mugs as opposed to paper cups on-site.
Paperless office in relation to use of tablets for our Integrated Management System.
Use of solar power where efficient to do so.
Tree protection fencing.
Spill clean up practices.
