Leighton Constructions cares for our environmentLeighton Contractors (Leicon) has adopted No BuTTs award winning Logo Printed Pocket Ashtrays as part of their Health, Safety and Environmental performance standards at the Moonamang Joint Venture Project in Far North Western Australia.

"We're very pleased to be able to assist Leicon and the Moonamang Joint Venture to address the serious environmental issue of cigarette butt litter reduction at their location." said Jack Jacobson, No BuTTs Managing Director.

"Leighton Contractors is one of Australia's largest and most prolific civil construction companies and they employ 1,000s of staff and contractors. That means that as they roll out distribution of their Personal Ashtrays, they are instantly reducing their butt litter footprint at which ever locations are receiving their project's Personal Ashtrays by 1,000s of cigarette butts."

"That's not only good for our environment it's also very good for their public profile because people do notice when someone litters their butts, especially when the litterer is wearing corporate work gear or standing near one of their vehicles." said Jack.

Moonamang Joint Venture is a partnership between Leighton Contractors and Indigenous Business Australia that is in charge of delivering Phase 1 of the Ord Irrigation Expansion Project. The Ord Irrigation Expansion Project will deliver approximately 8,000 hectares of fertile agricultural land known as the Goomig Farm area, located approximately 20km north of the town of Kununurra.

"Overall we are looking to lead the industry in environmental management, moving beyond compliance to achieve efficiencies and innovations which shift the way we operate." said a Leicon Spokesperson.

Leighton Contractors actively promotes HSE internally through training programs, contemporary management systems, rigorous record keeping and visible senior management support. 

Leicon's website clearly articulates their high standards of environmental protection.

"From issues such as water conservation and carbon, to the day-to-day running of work sites and offices, managing our environmental footprint and minimising our impact requires an open-minded and forward-thinking approach."

"Minimising site level environmental impacts such as erosion and sediment control, along with hydrocarbon and waste management, are our prime areas of focus for improving environmental management across our projects. In addition we are increasing our focus on beyond-compliance efforts in resource efficiency, recycling and rehabilitation."

"No BuTTs Pocket Ashtrays are increasingly being adopted by over 100 companies and organisations every week, and that's not only good for the environment, it's also of great benefit to their respective corporate image because employee/contractor butt littering is extremely damaging to any organisation's public profile." said No BuTTs Managing Director, Jack Jacobson.

Moonamang JV is a butt litter free project"Virtually every business these days likes to promote their high standards of environmental responsibility - and they should, but there are still many organisations out there that at the same time, for various reasons are ignoring the serious problem of their own smokers cigarette butt littering."

"Leighton Contractors is one of many corporations and organisations every week that are realising just how important it is for the environment, and their corporate image to address the problem of staff and contractor cigarette butt littering - and how simple, effective and economical it is to deal with the issue once and for all with No BuTTs Personal Ashtrays." 

"People are going to smoke with or without an ashtray. We believe, as do Leighton Contractors and over 5,000 other Aussie businesses and organisations, that it's much better with an ashtray than without, because we all know what's most likely going to happen if smokers don't have access to a portable ashtray..."

Leighton Contractors have included a QR Code on their Personal Ashtray. QR Codes (Quick Response Codes) allow anyone with a Smartphone, iPad or Tablet to scan the code for instant access to the desired action the client prefers.

"QR Codes are the most amazing marketing tool in years and it's for this reason that well over 75% of our clients are now ordering or reordering their logo printed Personal Ashtrays with their preferred QR Code." said Jack. "And with Miranda our full time Graphic Designer, it's easy for No BuTTs to create a QR Code that does virtually anything our clients want."

"QR Codes are incredible!" said No BuTTs Graphic Designer, Miranda Sattler.

Leighton Contractors cares for the environment.
"Leicon wanted their QR Code to open the Environmental Policy section on their website, which is the most popular option."

"However in the last few months we've had clients ordering their QR Codes to point to their Facebook page, open a phone's autodialler to their telephone number, send an email to them, play a Youtube corporate video, open a Google Maps pointer to their location - and even allow WiFi access to patrons at one of the many music festivals we supply."

"And the best thing is that it's free for both the person scanning the QR Code, and our clients who've had a QR Code printed on their Personal Ashtrays. Instant access...  It's an amazing opportunity for our Personal Ashtray clients."
