Going Green

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 sustainable awareness Melbourne Pipelines have introduced or are investigating the following measures:

  • 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.

"Melbourne Pipeline's approach to the environment has always been a pro-active one.  From having a dedicated horticulturalist on site, through to aiming to be GHG neutral each year, they exhibit a strong commitment to environmental sustainability that forms part of the reason why we enjoy working with them"
