About us

To deliver long-term value to our shareholders, sustainability must be at the heart of how we do business.

At Fletcher Building sustainability is about how we do business.  

It is about ensuring the sustainability of our business and the economic contribution we make; it is about preserving and protecting our natural environments and resources; it is about contributing positively to collective efforts that address relevant social issues in our communities; and it is about robust business governance.  

Our commitment to sustainability is focused on: 

  • Working together to protect the environment. 
  • Reducing the impacts associated with our manufacturing, construction, and extraction operations. 
  • Reducing the impacts associated with the distribution and use of our building materials. 
  • Building leadership capability. 
  • Supporting and investing in the communities in which we operate. 
  • Managing health and safety risks across our business. 
  • Working collaboratively with central and local government stakeholders to facilitate employment or training opportunities for disadvantaged youth. 
  • Having workplaces that strive to provide development opportunities for our people, focused on high engagement and high performance.
  • We are committed to maintaining transparency with all our stakeholders by reporting on our sustainability initiatives and performance annually.

Health and safety 

The health and safety of our people is paramount. Over the last decade we have radically improved our safety performance, reducing the total reportable injury frequency rate from 57.5 in 2006 to 6.8 in 2017.* However, even one injury is one too many, and our focus on safety will always be a priority – because we can always do better.  

In 2017, we launched a major new environment health and safety (EHS) initiative across all Fletcher Building businesses around the world called Protect – to ensure our journey of continual improvement continues.  

Our health and safety governance programme is implemented through our EHS Council, chaired by our Chief Executive officer (CEO). This Council develops the EHS strategy and monitors our performance against it. Each of our individual businesses and sites are supported by a central EHS team and take action at a local level to monitor and mitigate risk and ensure our people go home safe every day.

Community investment 

Our business units take an 'act local' approach to community investment, supporting initiatives that are relevant to their people, customers, and local communities.  

At a group level, we are particularly focused on supporting youth employment, training, and increasing diversity in the workplace. 

If you have a sponsorship request that relates to these focus areas please email your proposal to us. Otherwise, we recommend you contact your local Fletcher Building business or branch.
