Sustainability for the North East Link Project (NELP) means moving beyond just a 'business as usual' approach to one in which we actively seek to maximise long term benefits for the environment, our communities and our economic prosperity.
Our people are committed to being leaders in sustainability and integrating sustainability principles into planning, design and project decision making. We want to ensure we leave a positive legacy for present and future generations.
NELP’s approach to sustainability is guided by the North East Link Sustainability Policy (PDF, 119.2 KB)
NELP has developed sustainability objectives and targets around 6 themes, informed by stakeholder feedback on the opportunities and risks most relevant to the project.
NELP, along with delivery partners, will seek to achieve and exceed the sustainability targets across the design, construction and operation of North East Link.
