5P Model of Sustainability
PCL expands its focus beyond sustainable construction to encompass a holistic approach to focus on how it makes its People, Projects, Practices, Places, and Partnerships more sustainable. A 5P Model of Sustainability allows PCL to measure, evaluate, and increase sustainability efforts. This made-in-PCL model is unique to the construction industry.
This model defines and focuses sustainability efforts for
- Partners—Collaborating as client-focused solution providers to deliver exceptional results to all stakeholders, all of the time.
- People—Engaging employees by providing education, resources, and support.
- Projects—Involvement in all phases of a project’s life before, during, and after its construction.
- Practices—Improving operations through measurement, communication, and integration of sustainable business practices.
- Places—Contributing to, collaborating with, and improving the places where PCL works.
PCL ensures a sustainable work force and vibrant client relationships through these 5Ps and strives to be sustainable while remaining socially, environmentally, and economically sound. Together, these efforts promote every facet of the organization and maintain employee engagement and vitality.
