Corporate Social Responsibility

At Erilyan, we understand that construction plays a crucial role in shaping the world we live in – from environmental considerations through the processes, supply chain and materials used, to the impact a project has on individuals, the community and society as a whole.

The Erilyan way – our proven genuine, progressive and efficacious approach – extends beyond our engagement with our clients. We embrace our responsibility to minimise the environmental impact of projects, engage with our communities and ensure the well-being of all stakeholders. 

Sustainability & the environment

We’re committed to practices that are environmentally sustainable wherever possible. More than simply good for the planet, it’s good business; sustainable practices reduce long-term operational costs and risks.

  • Employees are trained to understand environmental and social considerations. We’re fostering a sustainably aware culture, where responsibility is assigned and understood.
  • We assess each contract and identify the significant environmental aspects of the site. A Project Risk Assessment is conducted prior to construction, reviewed and improved throughout the project lifecycle. 
  • All of our operations are focussed on the conservation of energy, water, and resources.
  • Waste is disposed of thoughtfully and safely and we follow the waste hierarchy of ‘Avoid, Reduce, Reuse, Recycle’.
  • Erilyan is certified to Environmental Management System ISO 14001:2015.

Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander RAP

Erilyan acknowledges the traditional owners of the lands on which we work.

As part of our Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP), our goal is to create an equal opportunity, inclusive environment, where people are valued for their diverse culture, experiences, knowledge and abilities.

  • Our Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) is under constant development.
  • We’re linking with local Aboriginal communities and adopting strategies to encourage the employment and retention of Aboriginal staff as well as ensuring the cultural competence of non-Aboriginal staff.
  • We’re providing culturally adapted advocacy, interpreter, and translation services to facilitate engagement with information, support and services.

Modern slavery

We are completely opposed to exploitation and all forms of modern slavery - a serious crime under the Commonwealth Modern Slavery Act 2018.

At all times, we endeavor to ensure no practices or situations are in place that might allow any form of modern slavery to develop within or around our business. Practically, this means not just our company but any supplier, external stakeholder or other entity that we work with or for. 

We help educate employees, contractors, and suppliers to ensure they understand the risks of modern slavery, how to spot them and what to do about them.

  • We ensure we have policies in place to reduce the risk of modern slavery.
  • We only engage with business partners and suppliers that recognise and manage their own risks of modern slavery.
  • We monitor supply chains that are at the greatest risk of including modern slavery practices.
  • We encourage all employees, contractors, consultants and service providers to support the prevention and detection of modern slavery and report any concerns.

Charities & sponsorships

At Erilyan, we know that our completed projects bring benefits to the community and wider society. But we also love making positive impacts beyond the construction site.

We believe in giving back to communities, supporting causes that align with our values of sustainability, inclusivity and community enrichment.
