Costain's objective is to meet the needs of stakeholders. Responsibility is at the core of everything we decide and do.
Costain cares about our natural and built environment; our relationships with all our stakeholders; and fundamentally, about the future of the UK.
We offer our clients leading edge solutions that are digitally optimised across the whole life cycle of their assets by integrating five core services.
Our Engineering Tomorrow strategy now provides a range of integrated consulting, project delivery and operations and maintenance services to blue-chip customers in the UK’s infrastructure, energy and water markets.
These are some of the challenges the UK faces: 300 landfill sites are due to close by 2020 because of environmental regulation; there is a 55 gigawatt energy gap; rail passenger miles and rail freight may double by 2035; vehicle miles travelled have more than doubled in the last 30 years; and water use has increased by almost 50% in the last 25 years
Costain is working with our customers to help meet these challenges.
Costain has a focused strategy of targeting billions of pounds of infrastructure investment and meeting customers’ needs. The management team has repositioned the company as a Tier One engineering solutions provider aligned with blue chip customers. Services include consultancy, construction and care to give breadth and scale to the business.
Costain has a blue chip customer base and 80% of the revenue represents repeat business. We have a quality order book of £2.3 billion in longer-term contracts to meet national needs.
Innovation is at the heart of the business and enables us to provide the solutions demanded by our customers. Our growth strategy includes making strategic acquisitions. There is an ambition to double profit in the medium term.
Costain cares about all stakeholders and responsibility is at the core of the business.
We are committed to operating our business both sustainably and responsibly. We are focused on one simple but powerful message – ‘Costain Cares’. This is not a slogan: it is an attitude of mind. It is integral to everything we do and a touchstone against which we can evaluate and measure our performance. We care about all our stakeholders.
