Our Core Values

Interoute Construction operates with very strict principles and values. We believe that these guiding principles help to ensure the success of our companies and uphold our integrity in the marketplace. Our values and beliefs are held in common by all employees at every level.

All Interoute Construction companies operate on the following Core Values:

Entrepreneurship Each employee should show initiative and be motivated by a desire to win, to commit, and to succeed.
Responsibility Each individual is fully accountable for his or her decisions and actions.
Trust Relations within the Group are based on trust, which is the cornerstone of autonomy, frankness, and authenticity. It is for each person to establish and develop his or her trustworthiness.
Respect Respect is the basic rule of behaviour that guides every employee in all his or her actions: respect for oneself and respect for other employees, customers, third parties, the trade unions, society at large, the Group’s principles, laws, and regulations, the environment, fairness, and ethics in the broadest sense.
Setting an Example Each day, every employee is expected to give the best of themselves, to strive constantly for quality, and to demonstrate the highest level of professionalism.
Humility Through continual self-questioning and by maintaining a humble attitude, each employee is always able to advance.

Ethics

We always operate with the highest standards of integrity, throughout all levels of our company. Upholding our values and principles with customers, suppliers, and competitors alike gives Interoute Construction the ability to develop value for the organization, and to foster long-term partnerships.

In every relationship with third parties, clients, and suppliers, the men and women of Interoute Construction respect their word and fulfill their agreements.

Social Acceptance of Production Sites

Interoute Construction is vertically integrated, meaning we manufacture most of our construction materials. Interoute makes major efforts to make its facilities as environmentally-friendly as possible and to develop an ongoing dialogue with local residents. We believe that dialogue is essential to understanding the needs of local communities and constructively working toward mutual understanding and satisfaction.

Safety

Safety is a top priority at Interoute Construction and our target always remains the same: zero accidents. We are constantly researching and testing new approaches to workplace and transportation safety and modifying accident prevention systems using risk evaluation, action plans, safety audits, toolbox safety talks on worksites, accident root-cause analysis, inter-company safety competitions, coordination of communication and management tools, safety induction for recently hired personnel, training courses dedicated to accident prevention, training days, and awareness raising for road accident prevention.

Safety is, and always will be, one of the utmost important aspects of our culture.

Environment

Respecting and protecting the environment are inherent in Interoute Construction’s responsible attitude in all aspects of our business. We are committed to being a responsible organization and we constantly look to improve our business activities to ensure that our companies are responsible stewards of our natural resources. Ensuring energy efficiency and maximizing the use of recycled products are fundamental in each of our operations, each of which has its own targets to uphold.
