Thomas F. Gilbane, Jr.

Chairman & CEO of Gilbane, Inc. and Chairman of Gilbane Building Company

At the heart of Gilbane’s Core Values is Caring which along with our genuine respect for people and the communities we serve, drives our Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) efforts. While our commitment to sustainability, social impact and strong governance is embedded in Gilbane Building Company efforts and projects, a coordinated ESG strategy is a new and critically-important initiative. As a private, family-owned company, we believe that we owe it to future generations to expand the positive impact we can make in the world.

Building a Sustainable Future

We are committed to fostering healthy, safe and sustainable workplaces that support continuous learning. Establishing partnerships in the communities where we do business enables us to share our stewardship message, affect positive environmental change and raise environmental awareness. Through reducing the consumption of raw materials, water, and fuels we aim to minimize impacts on natural resources.


At Gilbane, we seek out suppliers who are also committed to reducing their carbon footprint through conservation of resources, practicing waste minimization techniques and maximizing local sourcing. 




Governance at Gilbane

Every employee should be treated with respect, dignity, and courtesy. Gilbane is committed to providing its employees with work environments that are free from inappropriate behavior, discrimination, harassment, and unlawful workplace practices. Likewise, through our Code of Ethics, we establish clear expectations and standards for our employees’ ethical behavior in a manner that reflects our Core Value of Integrity.


We believe that it is equally important for our partners, subcontractors, and vendors to understand our requirements, and that they follow the highest ethical standards outlined in our Vendor Code of Conduct. We have also established a system of checks and balances to manage our operations and to ensure compliance with our standards. Ultimately, our goal is to safeguard our employees, clients, partners, assets, and operations while ensuring the highest quality of service.
