In June 2017, Balfour Beatty participated in the UK’s first ever National Clean Air Day. National Clean Air Day provides an opportunity for the country to come together and improve air quality through collective action.
Birmingham City Council prompted all local businesses to participate, which led to Balfour Beatty staff working on the Sutton New Hall Cemetery Extension arranging a one hour stand-down. The stand-down saw operatives restrict plant machine operations throughout the day and reduce overall carbon emissions on site.
Prior to the event taking place, Balfour Beatty promoted National Clean Air Day through its monthly stakeholder and local residents’ newsletter, and encouraged staff working on site to leave their vehicles at home and travel to work by minibus.
Our involvement in National Clean Air Day is an example of Balfour Beatty constantly looking for new ways to tackle environmental impact, such as air quality, carbon emissions and noise pollution.
