PAR West recognizes the importance of protecting our nation’s resources in all operations and business we conduct.

PAR West is committed to ensuring that all employees, subcontractors, and subconsultants are good corporate citizens and neighbors.

In order to realize this, PAR West is committed to several measures. This includes but is not limited to: ensuring compliance with all applicable federal, state, and local environmental regulations; promoting business activities and operations that minimize impacts to sensitive environmental resources; and working with our customers to find ways to promote sustainable methods

PAR West’s goal is to be a good corporate steward of the environment.

PAR West is currently implementing several policies to ensure this takes place. This includes but is not limited to: continuous assessment of our fleet and its GHG impacts and communicating with our clients to find ways within projects to minimize environmental impacts.

PAR West’s goal is to be a good corporate steward of the environment.

Reducing emissions

Our fleet is constantly being upgraded, and we offer the option to utilize a cleaner fleet of vehicles on projects with that need. PAR West has hybrid construction equipment that is used to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and comply with specific engine requirements as necessary.

Reusing water

PAR West can pump and use construction vault water or stormwater infiltrations (when determined clean) to use as fugitive dust suppressant along right-of-ways. PAR West utilizes smart irrigation technology in some of its facilities to ensure that landscaping irrigation is limited or eliminated when weather provides adequate rainfall for facilities.

Preserving habitats

Working closely with clients, PAR West uses both advanced planning and proprietary technologies during construction to reduce disturbance areas and reduce environmental resource impacts at the project level. This is especially helpful for projects with habitat mitigation and/or sensitive biological and/or cultural resources.

Eliminating paper

To further protect the environment, PAR West’s corporate and divisional offices have an environmental policy that employees who support our crews in the field follow, such as the utilization of an electronic billing system that eliminates the use of paper. We are always looking for ways to conserve at the corporate and divisional levels.

Corporate Responsibility & Sustainability

PAR West is focused on long term corporate responsibility and sustainability. Our sustainability mission centers on collaborating with our customers to meet their needs and creating value for stakeholders, while focusing on employee safety and conducting our business in a socially, economically, and environmentally responsible manner.

PAR West also works closely with our vendors to ensure they understand our goals.
