A responsible business
The ambitions we chase today will build the world we live in tomorrow.
Sustainable. Inclusive. Connected. This is the world we all want. Making it happen? That’s going to take leadership, creativity – and the full force of our collective ambitions.
We’re living in a world that’s developing fast. The societal need for property and infrastructure is ever-growing and the urgent need for sustainable development is ever more pressing.
The built environment holds many of the keys to a better future. In an industry that’s too often been part of the problems, we’re determined to be part of the solutions. No going back. No holding back.
So whether we’re delivering pro-bono work, recruiting apprentices, procuring responsibly resourced materials or reducing carbon emissions to zero, we’re driven by the opportunity to positively impact lives.
While our industry has taken steps to protect the planet by becoming more sustainable, what we have collectively achieved isn’t enough. We need to transform the way we build, refurbish, operate and repurpose the built environment.
Bold commitments and far-reaching targets will set the benchmark for our industry. Where more needs to be done, we’ll take the lead. Where others need support, we’ll share what we’ve learned and work with them.
We’re here at a significant and exciting chapter in history. As our business keeps growing in scale and influence, we’re harnessing our unique capabilities to be a force for positive change.

Wellbeing and opportunityFrom providing opportunities for young people to join our industry, to working with communities to create greater social value, we are committed to leaving a lasting legacy through our work.
Construction consumes 40% of global resources and has a long way to go before it can be considered an efficient industry. We are one of many influencers in this space and are committed to doing more, both where we have direct control and where we act in an advisory capacity.
Quality of environment
Construction is still considered by some to be a dirty industry, not recognised for being at the front end of clean technology or pollution control. It is our ambition to change the status quo, and reposition the industry as one that develops solutions, rather than creates problems.
