The  Australian Constructors Association (ACA) has launched a ground-breaking Australian Construction Industry Charter to spearhead much-needed industry reform to help ensure stimulus projects are delivered efficiently and their benefits shared and maximised according to the Built Environment News Platform.

The Charter’s ten commitments to reform embraced by Australia’s leading construction and infrastructure contracting companies include improving industry culture by addressing matters such as worker health and well-being, working more closely with clients to improve project outcomes, nurturing the supply chain and increasing female participation. ACA Chief Executive Officer Jon Davies said, “Recognising the reliance being placed on it by Government to lead the economy out of recession, our industry has stepped up to the plate.

“We need to be transparent and accountable to our clients while maximising the social and economic benefits of our sector which employs 10 per cent of the total workforce.

“In an industry first, we have clearly identified the key elements required to improve the poor sustainability of our sector and effectively deliver the pipeline of stimulus projects. We have also developed our own Charter to ensure we are able to achieve lasting positive change and set the industry up for future success.
