At Clyde Companies, we stick to core values that help us fulfill our mission of “Building a Better Community.” We build a better community by the physical work we do, by providing meaningful employment for thousands of employees and their families, and by giving back to the communities in which we work and reside.
Doing the right thing is built into our founding principles, and that is what’s at the heart of Corporate Social Impact.
Clyde Companies believes in the alignment of donations to executive priorities and community causes where we currently do business, and in support of key employees, customers, and stakeholders.
Invested in the Next Generation
Clyde Companies invests heavily in local education programs, helping build a vibrant, prepared workforce. In addition to donations and sponsorships of Junior Achievement and the Utah Diesel Tech Pathways, Clyde Companies employees serve on educational boards and committees. Additionally, each of Clyde Companies’ subsidiaries provide internship opportunities to college students. Clyde Companies is involved with the Pathways to Professions program to better partner educational institutions and industries to students with jobs while showcasing the construction industry. Clyde Companies also participates with You Science to find matches of actual interests and skillsets of high school students.
A Culture of Service
Building a Better Community
A legacy of giving back exists among employees of Clyde Companies who consistently serve on boards, city councils, and other community causes. Subsidiary companies also regularly donate time, equipment, and materials to the betterment of communities throughout the Intermountain West and Great Plains regions.
Subsidiaries of Clyde Companies utilize several types of additives in concrete mixes to help reduce the greenhouse gas footprint associated with cement production and extend the use of the product. Encapsulating fly ash from coal-fired power plants in concrete eliminates the need to landfill the product, reducing each subsidiaries’ carbon footprint. Bridgesource primarily supplies fly ash for this purpose, but when not available, other products such as a mineral filler developed by Sunroc and CarbonCure Concrete are used.
Natural Gas Mixers
Geneva Rock’s investment in natural gas mixers is one of the largest air quality investments made by any construction company in the state of Utah.
Clyde Companies created a software system called Reliance to help monitor healthy air quality, stay in compliance with regulations, and track permit limits for each production site.
Low NOx Generators
Clyde Companies now operates EPA certified Tier 4 generators at its gravel pits to help reduce NOx emissions. The new generators replaced previously operated non-certified generators.
Reducing Environmental Impact
Clyde Companies is committed to being a good steward of resources by using recycled content in all of its operations. Continual efforts are in place to improve and lessen the impact on the environment. Recycled asphalt and concrete are reused in the pavement of roads, and water filters help in the production of aggregates. Unusable cuts of lumber are also recycled into mulch.
Local Sourcing Energy Efficiency
Aggregates and Raw Materials
Clyde Companies is proud to source its aggregates and raw materials locally. Sourcing materials locally not only protects the environment, but it also improves the quality of life for the residents in our communities.
Geneva Rock invested heavily in a unique energy-generation downhill conveyor system at its Point of the Mountain site – one of the first organizations in Utah to utilize this tool. The electricity produced is rerouted for use in the plants electrical network. The investment has quickly paid for itself.
The DEI committee was organized in 2021 by the Clyde Companies’ Executive Leadership Team to discuss, research, and recommend improvements at Clyde Companies, including the increase of women and minorities in leadership. Its mission is: Building a Better CommUNITY. The DEI committee maintains four strategic initiatives: Education and Awareness, Data and Analytics, Policy, and Best Practices.
Refugee/H2B Visa Employees
Providing Employment Opportunities
Sunpro began an innovative program in 2021 to help fill key unfilled positions amidst the nationwide workforce shortage through the hiring of refugees and H-2B visa employees.
A Priority of Safety
People are our first priority. Protecting the health and safety of employees and those involved in our projects has always been – and will always be – the most important part of our work. We work smart so we can all go home safe. Our commitment to safety revolves around four directives:
Establish Safe Working Environments for All
Remember Safety is a Responsibility We Share
Encourage Employees to Communicate Concerns
Recognize and Reward Safe Work
Investing in our Drivers’ Safety
Clyde Companies is taking a big step forward in its goal to keep employees safe with an investment in safety cameras on the front of its commercial vehicles. These cameras will provide both external and internal views of the driving process. This will protect team members by bringing more attention to driving habits and exonerating them for notat-fault accidents. They will be seamlessly integrated across Clyde Companies’ enterprise technology systems.
Women & Minorities in the Workforce
Clyde Companies is taking steps to champion diversity and inclusion and empowering women and minorities. Some of the applied strategies are creating monthly informational articles on the Clyde Portal, introducing an interactive data dashboard for career development, forming a dedicated Women Employee Resource Group, and paid parental leave. Clyde companies is making strides in fostering an inclusive environment. These endeavors are vital in promoting equality and enabling individuals from all backgrounds to thrive professionally.
