Over the last three years, the world has changed significantly, with COVID-19 and a cost-of-living crisis impacting our communities, and nature and climate emergencies becoming more obvious in our day-to-day lives.
To make sure we address the issues that are most important to us and our stakeholders, and to ensure we have the greatest impact, we have evolved our existing sustainability strategy, 'Building for a Sustainable World'. As a responsible business, we understand that we must both adapt our organisation to be successful in these changing operating conditions and contribute to a sustainable world.
Our evolved framework focuses on building on the good work that we have previously undertaken in the environment and the creation of social value in the communities we work in.
An overview of our sustainability framework
Our Building for a Sustainable World framework focuses on three key pillars where we believe we can make the biggest difference; Our People, Our Places and Our Planet.
Each pillar has several issues that are aligned to the priorities of our people and stakeholders. Each topic has clearly defined non-financial measures, chosen to help demonstrate impact and continuous improvement.
Everyone at Kier has a role to play and this puts sustainability at the heart of our business decision making.
