Maas is focused on the long term, and we want to be an industry leader in sustainable business operations. Our diverse operations shape many elements of modern communities, from our quarry products, which fuel large infrastructure projects, to our construction activities, which are building contemporary landscapes.
We believe that the best companies deliver real and lasting benefits not only for shareholders, but also for their workers and the broader community.
In fact, we believe that it is only possible to deliver real results over the long term by doing what is right, respecting others and being responsible. Responsible business is ingrained in everything we do.
Maas cares about our people and believes all workers should return home safely at the end of the day. This belief drives a strong commitment to the health, safety and wellbeing of our workers, which is supported by robust work health and safety management systems. Our consultative risk management framework aims to deliver a targeted risk-based approach, engaged leaders, empowered workers and a positive safety culture.
Maas is committed to managing our environmental footprint and minimising any impact on the environment. We appreciate that responsible environmental management in the resources and infrastructure sector plays a significant role in ensuring sustainability across Australia. As such, we recognise that proper care of the environment is a fundamental part of our corporate responsibility and integral to our long-term success. Our environmental management systems ensure environmental obligations are identified and management strategies implemented across our operations, from planning through to operational stages.
Maas strives to build and maintain strong relationships with our communities. We recognise that our long-term success depends on the well-being and development of the communities in which we operate. Therefore, we engage openly and constructively with community stakeholders, including peak industry bodies, to share information, hear concerns and solve problems. We proudly support many charities, initiatives and community groups.
We embrace our corporate social responsibility, and through sound governance, strive to improve the world around us and the lives of the people who live within the communities where we operate.
We will always act with integrity in all our dealings, meet our customer’s needs, look after our team, take care of the environment and support the community.
These priorities are the foundations of our views on sustainability – it’s simply how we do business.
