At GCC, we have been practicing “Green Principles” long before they became popular. Our interest in sustainable methods of construction developed from our early recognition that building green was a “win-win” proposition for our clients, the environment, and our company. Our initial efforts were not formalized into a set of building principles, but rather based on the general idea of looking for opportunities from which our clients could benefit in the way a structure was built and/or the materials used.
Since that time, we have enhanced our capabilities and formalized our commitment to sustainability through the training and certification of many of our construction professionals in the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (“LEED”) Green Building Rating System. With this expertise, we are partnering with our clients and their architects to complete projects which fulfill the promise of more energy-efficient and environmentally-friendly buildings.
We believe that Building Green represents an enduring and significant concept in the construction industry. Its significance will only increase in the years to come. Whether it is through the LEED rating system or other methods, GCC is committed to reducing our impact on the environment.
The management and staff of Gomez Construction Company believe that to achieve our goals of becoming a premiere construction company in our Country, we must lead not only economically, but environmentally and socially as well. The company understands that it is in a prominent position to affect the environment in our Country. Our objective is not only to sustain our environment for our descendants but also to rehabilitate the damage previously done.
We believe that our corporate responsibility goes beyond our proprietary borders and we endeavor to cooperate with our neighbors and our suppliers to develop our business in a sustainable manner. Every effort will be made to conserve resources throughout our operations. Our purchasing department will seek products and services of local origin and that are environmentally benign. The company will choose to hire local whenever possible. Our success will be determined on a yearly basis with a commitment to improve.
Furthermore, the company will not only meet existing environmental laws and regulations, but go beyond the status quo and seek techniques and approaches that position us ahead of our competition. Our policy towards the environment will be readily available and promoted to our business partners and guests. Growth of our company depends on our abilities to minimize or eliminate our impacts on our surroundings. Our ultimate success depends on the environment of our Country. Our company’s future and the future of our environment are interconnected.
