MILFORD, MA – Building on its efforts to minimize the impact of fossil fuel emissions in the construction industry, Consigli Construction Co., Inc. has joined the Associated General Contractors of Massachusetts (AGC of MA)’s Construction EV Charger Pledge.
The initiative signals the industry’s commitment to accelerating the transition of construction sites to allow for greater use of electrified vehicles and equipment. The pledge also requests that signatories include at least one exterior NEMA 14-50 commercial grade electric vehicle charging receptacle at their places of businesses and at all construction sites.
Steven Burke, Director of Sustainability, serves on the AGC of MA Sustainability Advisory Committee, which is sponsoring the initiative.
“As leaders in the Commonwealth’s construction community, it is on us and our partners in the industry to drive necessary change, like the prioritization and installation of electrified vehicles and equipment, on our jobsites to help accomplish our shared sustainability goals,” said Steven Burke, Director of Sustainability at Consigli Construction Co., Inc. “Consigli is committed to working collaboratively with AGC MA and our fellow EV pledge cosigners to do our part and lead the construction industry toward a greener, more sustainable future.”
The EV Charger Pledge is part of a wider effort to increase the use of electrified vehicles and equipment in the construction process. In addition to the installation of EV charging stations, as a pledge signee, Consigli commits to promoting the use of battery powered vehicles, heavy equipment and power tools.
“We are proud of the impactful work that is being accomplished by our Sustainability Committee, and by the commitment of our member firms to this important effort,” said John Ferrante, AGC MA CEO. “The local construction sector is dedicated to building a brighter and better future for all.”
