Every organisation has an impact on the world around it. Being a responsible business means being transparent about what these are, measuring them accurately and then acting to minimise them. That’s what we are doing as part of our sustainability strategy as we work to protect the environment and help people thrive.
We believe in doing business in a way that is fair, transparent and, above all, safe and sustainable.
Our ability to deliver certainty for our clients is based on an operating model that differs from those of our competitors.
To deliver social sustainability.

"As a family owned business, we have long been focussed on delivering lasting benefits to our clients, our people and the communities our projects serve. We’ve made progress delivering our environmental plan, but the simple fact is the climate emergency demands we do more and with greater urgency. The same is true of diversity, which remains unacceptably low in our sector.
The construction industry has some difficult challenges to solve, most notably that of reducing the embodied carbon in concrete. But I know our people have the passion to make a real difference and the experience to work with others, including our clients and partners, to deliver the progress required." - Ray O Rourke, Group CEO
