BOND Brothers, Inc. Inaugural Sustainability Report

BOND Brothers, Inc. (BOND), a premier family of companies providing the Northeast with construction management and general contracting services, has published its inaugural Sustainability Report, the first report of its kind in BOND’s 115-year history. The report represents a new chapter and strategic direction for the company and its three subsidiary companies: BOND Building, BOND Civil & Utility, and BOND Mechanical. From leading by example for over five generations and actively supporting the construction industry’s evolution through internal sustainable operations, this milestone establishes BOND’s commitment, accountability, and values for sustainable, long-term growth.

“I’m proud to say that over our 115 years in business, BOND has embodied our core purpose of building a better society through enduring relationships by prioritizing who we build for, what we build, and how that impacts our communities. This report captures that philosophy, measures our current operations and practices, and lays out a strategic long-term roadmap for our environmental, social, and governance commitments. A sustainable future is the only future, and BOND intends to be an industry leader on these efforts for the next 100 years,” said Tony Bond, CEO & President, BOND Brothers, Inc.

This industry-leading report includes environmental, social, and governance (ESG) accomplishments relevant to BOND’s operations within 2020-2021, as well as forward-thinking intentions to study, measure, and implement across BOND’s operations throughout the Northeast. BOND has identified nine distinct, measurable goals to establish its ESG foundation and continue building towards over the next three years, including:

  • Reducing emissions and promoting green building practices: BOND will establish an Internal Sustainability Council to study current Scope 1 and Scope 2 emissions and establish mitigation strategies. This builds on current lean construction practices, US Green Building Council membership and track record, and successful waste management practices.
  • Increasing workforce diversity: Building on the work of its Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Committee, BOND will further develop its mentoring program by partnering with target schools, community programs, and industry groups to train and coach future generations of the workforce and will increase employee participation in its partnership with ‘Grid for Good’ to at least 15% in 2022.
  • Encouraging transparency, accountability, and collaboration: To improve health and safety standards, BOND will incorporate employee and partner feedback into Corporate Safety Roundtable decisions, and will strengthen its subcontractor management program to ensure long-term, rigorous safety standards.

Since its founding, BOND has cemented a status of being creative experts in district energy, education, healthcare, infrastructure, industrial, energy and utility construction and contracting. In establishing this ESG foundation, BOND positions itself to support the goals of their customers and partners while leading with their values of safety, collaboration, and integrity.

“As a customer- and people-driven organization, BOND is constantly integrating new ideas, evolving our best practices, and striving to be a best-in-class corporate citizen. For a company of our size and history, I’m particularly proud of our safety program and record, company-wide DE&I committee, and the development of our greenhouse gas emissions inventory. Establishing ESG-driven business practices ensure performance, innovation, and culture for long-term success,” said Bond.

“Sustainability is embedded in the way we conduct our business each and every day and touches all facets of our company,” said Eversource Executive Vice President of Corporate Relations and Sustainability, Jim Hunt. “Eversource’s sustainability strategy relies on the collaboration with key partners, like Bond Brothers, throughout our entire supply chain to ensure a comprehensive approach to sustainability.”

The report also highlights BOND’s investment in its people and communities. With a rate of injury significantly lower than the industry average, BOND’s commitment to transparency, training, and safety has reduced the probability of an injury incident by more than 90 percent. Through the BOND Brothers Foundation, the company has contributed over $1.5 million to community organizations that support local housing, youth education, and workforce training programs. In a competitive, rapidly growing industry, BOND is also working to create a dynamic, people-centric future through employee training and professional development programs and supporting its Women in Construction group to ensure career pathways and leadership opportunities for women.
