    4. Environmental Progress 2016 Welcome to our Environmental Statement for 2016. During 2016 we have complied with all environmental statutes and regulations and thereby maintained our record of no prosecutions for breaches of health, safety and environmental legislation. The Company has also maintained its registration to the ISO 14001 Standard. I am pleased to report that during 2016 the Company had no major pollution incidents during 1,594,031 working hours. This is particularly important given the large number of projects that the Company undertakes within sensitive habitats, particularly our work in marine and river environments. A key contributory factor in minimising environmental incidents is training. Therefore we have continued to develop our internal health, safety and environmental toolbox talks during 2015 to provide training for our workforce, to increase their environmental awareness and minimise the risk of environmental incidents occurring. It is again apparent from internal SHEQ audits, that the general standard of site set up and paperwork with regard to health and safety, environment and quality continued to rise during 2016. During 2017 we will continue to share the experience and measures undertaken on the best sites with other members of the team so that the average scores across all sites continue to rise. The Company continues to improve its environmental performance which is demonstrated by our environmental KPIs, with significant reductions in our CO2 emissions and office water use. Full details of our Environmental KPIs for 2016 can be found on pages 13 to 18. Our Environmental Programme has shown good made in a number of environmental projects. Further progress will be made during 2017. Overall, this has been a satisfactory year for the Company’s Environmental Management System.

    John Breheny – Chairman
