Our purpose of Building Bright Futures provides a clear guiding principle for how we  pproach sustainability.

We have started this journey and recognise that we have a way to go, working closely with all our stakeholders, including our people, customers, suppliers, partners and  shareholders.

As a major employer, we play an important role in providing employability and economic opportunity for a large number of communities. We recognise that responsibility and strive to offer a range of opportunities to a diverse range of the workforce.


As an infrastructure business, we play an important role in helping the United Kingdom transition to a net zero economy; our strategy and service developments throughout the year have reflected this and we are delivering environmentally driven, sustainable infrastructure every day.

Our sustainability performance builds on our purpose, values and culture including the high ethical standards of behaviour and corporate governance that we expect. The business has developed a comprehensive set of policies and procedures to ensure compliance and monitor progress.

As a result of the significant challenges to UK society relating to the impacts of climate change, Covid-19 and Brexit, there has never been a more important time to focus on sustainability.
