Our sustainability report brings to life our achievements, commitments, and ambitions to sustainability and showcases our bold plans for the future. It’s our intention to publish this report on an annual basis, to both track our progress and to share our future plans as our ambitions grow.
Split into seven main chapters, our report showcases how we plan to enhance the environment, reduce our carbon footprint, invest in communities, support local skills, education and employment, listen to our customers and stakeholders, create a diverse, resilient supply chain and build an inclusive culture.
Reducing our carbon footprint
We are pushing the boundaries of low carbon innovation, setting a new standard for how you procure, design and construct infrastructure that will forge the way to net zero. This chapter details how as a designated Pathfinder project, we’re leading the way to carbon neutral construction.
Investing in communities
The Lower Thames Crossing will have a positive impact on people’s lives and wellbeing along the route. The increased certainty of how long a journey across the river is likely to take will open up new opportunities for communities both sides of the River Thames. Read this chapter to find out how we are supporting local communities.
Supporting local skills, education and employment
Local people are at the heart of our Skills, Education and Employment Strategy. This means unlocking skills and better paid jobs, supporting educators and delivering activities that excite and inspire the next generation. This chapter highlights how we’re delivering our skills legacy.
Creating a resilient, local supply chain
Putting local businesses first is at the centre of our strategy to build a diverse and resilient supply chain. The more we work with suppliers in the region, the more of a long-lasting legacy we can leave. Read this chapter to see how we share valuable information with local businesses and suppliers.
