As one of Australia’s leading construction companies in safety, quality and innovation, we understand our responsibilities to our built environment and building for a better future. To this end, our CSR approach is underpinned by three pillars: People, Planet and Partnerships. Our CSR aligns with what we do and how we do it. It is front of mind for our leaders and emanates from our vision, core values and the aspirations of our clients and employees. The strength of our CSR is the result of it not being a stand-alone initiative but as an integral part of what we do every single day. We take our lead from The United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.

UN Sustainability Goals and Our CSR Pillars
We have reviewed the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals and have identified the goals and targets that align with our business. In recognition of the urgent response required from all countries to adopt strategies to promote sustainability for people and the planet, the United Nations created the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development (the Agenda), which was adopted by all United Nations member states in 2015. At the heart of the Agenda are 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) to be applied to both developed and developing nations. We have reviewed the SDG and have determined the goals and targets that align with our business and what we can influence through our CSR approach and FY2021 strategy. Of the 17 the following 10 are Probuild’s core focus:
At Probuild, our corporate social responsibility is underpinned by doing the right thing, so we ensured this fundamental principle was captured in our CSR framework, which centres around three key pillars: People, Planet and Partnerships. Probuild’s CSR framework sets out our key standards and targets that we have assigned under our People, Planet and Partnership pillars. For us, our CSR Strategy is dynamic. Towards the end of each year, we review our goals and targets and report on the previous year via our ‘Achievements at a Glance’.
