Occupational health and safety is top priority in NRC Group and we work proactively to reduce all work related accidents. In addition, we encourage our employees to a healthy lifestyle.
Traditionally, the construction industry has faced challenges with gender equality and is strongly dominated by the male gender. NRC Group has developed a diversity plan and we now see that the number of female employees is increasing. In 2020, the representation of female employees exceeded 10%.
We pay attention to, and report on, our energy consumption, and calculate our footprint. By focusing on energy efficiency and renewable energy we reduce our emissions and help promote the development of a sustainable industry.
Our employees work in a wide variety of working environments. The wellbeing of our employees is a key to succesful projects and we work actively to improve and optimise the working conditions.
