Safety & Sustainability
Our aim is to leave a lasting positive impact on all in our sphere of activity.
Julius Berger believes that sustainable business is good business. We continuously assess the impact of our business activities and proactively seek opportunities to create shared value for both the company and the country, including our communities and staff. As such, excellence in health, safety and environmental protection and investments into the professional development of staff are fundamental components of Julius Berger’s corporate culture and business practices. Corporate social responsibility programs are developed and carried out with the notion that by focusing efforts on areas that support economic viability, environmental responsibility and social inclusion, measurable progress can be made. In support of our commitments, Julius Berger has pledged alignment with the ten universal principles of the United Nations Global Compact.

Julius Berger actively works to protect the wellbeing of our staff members, as well as society and the environment in Nigeria by implementing health, safety and environmental measures for responsible growth that meets current operational requirements, while sustaining resources for future needs. Accountability for Health, Safety and Environmental protection is central to our operations, and managing HSE process and performance is a top priority. Our teams operate with a strong sense of responsibility towards colleagues, clients, business partners and communities.

Julius Berger invests in community development activities and local employment to forge and foster good relations with host communities and to promote social and economic inclusivity. We support community-based initiatives, local business through services and supply contracts and the local workforce, to the extent possible, thereby ensuring that the immediate environment in which we operate is positively impacted and elevated by our business activities.
