At CPB Contractors, we share the CIMIC Group’s mission and principles. These, along with our CI​MIC Group Code of Conduct, guide and help us to work together, make the right decisions and create the right outcomes.

Our Mission

Our mission is to generate sustainable returns for our shareholders by delivering projects for our clients while providing safe, rewarding and fulfilling careers for our people. 

Our Principles

Our Principles guide our actions and provide a shared language and identity across CPB Contractors and the CIMIC Group.

Our Principles are Integrity, Accountability, Innovation and Delivery.

  • Integrity is about honesty and respect, which are important as we must act lawfully, but more than that – it's about interacting with our colleagues, our clients, our suppliers and our shareholders in the way you would expect them to interact with you
  • Accountability is about commitment and responsibility; it's about doing what we are each required to do regardless of our level or position; it's about accepting the challenges we all face and dealing with them with dedication and professionalism
  • Innovation is about finding new and better ways of doing our work; it's about continuous improvement, solving problems and making the most of our professional skills; it should be at the heart of our competitive advantage and our success
  • Delivery is about the quality of our achievement; without delivery, we have no business; it drives our reputation and credibility; it's keeping our outcomes in focus and continually striving to do better.

Within the Principles framework, Safety underpins everything. It is fundamental to our business.
