With the goal of minimising the environmental impact of our constructions sites, our parent company, Bouygues Construction, launched a series of initiatives that set common standards across our core business areas in early 2010. Comprising three elements, the initiatives underline our respect for the natural environment as a whole, as well as the local environment surrounding each of our sites.

Environmental Standards Guide

These Standards stems from the most stringent national regulations, as well as drawing on our already exemplary practices observed across the Group.

Evaluation Grid

Each site is rated against more than 60 criteria across 11 categories.

  • Analysis of environmental risks
  • Conservation of biodiversity
  • Waste management
  • Reduction of energy consumption
  • Hazardous products
  • Cleanliness and tidiness
  • Reduction of site noise
  • Communications
  • Air quality
  • Handling of emergency situations
  • Quality of the aquatic environment


Ecosite Label

Representatives of the Group’s Quality Safety Environmental Department, all of whom are independent of the project, audit each site. On successful completion of this audit, the site will be awarded the Eco-site Label.

Environmental Initiative

Dragages Hong Kong was honoured to receive the Ecosite label for its Civil Aviation Department Headquarters. Awarded in February 2010, the project was the first to receive the coveted label within the Group.
The Ecosite Label recognised a number of features implemented across the project including detailed monitoring and recycling of excavated materials, specialised staff training in environmental management, extensive recycling of materials and rainwater and the implementation of a site-wide environmental key performance indicator system.

New Initiative - Green Site Toilet

To further enhance the well being of our colleagues, Dragages implemented Green Site Toilets in early 2013. In addition to the enhancement of hygiene, the adoption of vacuum toilet system saves water used by up to 90%, reduces sewage volume substantially and lowers energy consumption.
