Leaving a positive environmental legacy is an important component of any successful project, and the environment outside of the site boundary should always be considered. In line with Multiplex’s Net Positive sustainability strategy, a group of volunteers from the University of Glasgow project spent an afternoon with Friends of the River Kelvin (FoRK), a local charity whose mission is to improve local biodiversity through enhancement projects and educational events.

The first activity involved learning how to sample the water quality of the river using the presence of invertebrates as a positive indicator. Afterwards, the team spent time litter picking around Kelvingrove Park, meaning the litter will no longer affect local biodiversity or pollute the environment, whilst enabling FoRK to focus on their improvement activities such as tree planting.

The afternoon delivered on one of Multiplex’s targets from our strategy to increase biodiversity related volunteering hours and also contributed to the University’s strategy of enhancing the biodiversity surrounding the campus.

The event helped to:

  • Increase our teams understanding of biodiversity
  • Improve the local environment
  • Engage an important local stakeholder
