With sustainability at the heart of the Group’s strategy, we are committed to lead on Environmental, Social and Governance (“ESG”) through our “Building for Better” agenda. This agenda is a key driver in achieving our Group Purpose and Ambition.

We are uniquely able to convene the supply chain to collaborate and co-create solutions, influencing and supporting the sustainability changes our industry needs, because of the Group’s market-leading businesses and our position in the supply chain between thousands of suppliers and thousands of customers.

Our Sustainability Priority is to decarbonise the Industry, and the ESG agenda and ambitious targets we have set reflect this.  We have four strategic focus areas which enable meaningful change on both decarbonisation and skills, supported by Doing the Right Thing and making sure we're running a responsible business.

Our approach to sustainability has been developed in consultation with colleagues, customers, suppliers and investors, to make sure we're addressing the most material risks and opportunities and to ensure that we lead the change towards a sustainable future.  It is underpinned by our values and aligns with a number of the UN Sustainable Development Goals.

The Group reports ESG data and information in line with SASB requirements.

The full set of data can be found in the 2022 Annual Report.
