“Turner’s comprehensive approach to sustainability relies on the innovation, creativity and resourcefulness of our people.” - Julia Gisewite, Director of Sustainability.
Elevating What it Means to be Green
At Turner, we are elevating what it means to be a “green” builder.
Fifteen years ago, we made a formal commitment to becoming a green builder. Turner is now recognized as a leader with completion of more than 1,200 green building projects. Along the way, we diverted three million tons of construction waste from landfills, improved our work environment, and reduced our environmental impact through programs such as the annual Turner Green Zone survey.
However, these efforts alone are not enough. Extreme weather events, climate change and their impact on people and the built environment have called on us to lead in new ways. That is why we have begun the next chapter in Turner’s sustainability story; we have elevated our approach towards environmental sustainability.
We believe in utilizing our technical expertise to create a healthy, prosperous and sustainable future for our people, clients and the environment. Three pillars support this achievement of our vision.
