New sustainability strategies released
RJV is pleased to announce the release of our updated 2023 sustainability strategy along with dedicated strategies in the areas of:
- Diversity, inclusion and equality
- Aboriginal engagement and recruitment;
- Local subcontractor engagement and employee recruitment.
Together, these strategies set out how we intend to meet the targets we have set for ourselves in our four key areas of materiality:
- Governance; and
They map out our pathways to achieving key objectives and targets, including:
|Area of Materiality
|Increase workforce diversity, inclusion and equality.
|At least 15% of our workforce to be female with at least 15% of this group engaged in formal training by 2025.
An improvement year-on-year in employee perception that the recruitment and onboarding and company culture processes are inclusive.
|Increase the attraction, recruitment, development and retention of Aboriginal employees.
|At least 5% of our workforce to be Aboriginal people with at least 50% of this group engaged in formal training by 2024.
|Maintain our commitment to the net zero journey by tracing our carbon footprint, revising our net zero strategy and plan, and taking reasonable decarbonisation actions to fulfil our net zero targets.
|Short-term: Net zero for head offices and workshops by 2024.
Near-term: Reduce scope 1 and 2 emissions intensity by 30% by 2030 (from 2022 emissions intensity).
Long-term: Net zero across all operations for scope 1 and 2 emissions by 2050 or earlier.
|Increase locally-based suppliers, subcontractors and employees at our projects.
|Target percentages of local suppliers, subcontractors and employees will be determined when baselines have been established.
|Increase the engagement of local Aboriginal businesses on our contracts.
|Increase the value to be awarded to local Aboriginal businesses by 20% year on year.
