Sustainable development and design

We want to encourage economic growth while protecting the environment and improving safety and quality of life for current and future generations

Sustainable development and design

We'll use our resources more efficiently, minimising demand for materials extracted from the ground and maximising re-use.

We'll investigate the origins of our goods and materials, understanding that their production and handling can have local, national and global impacts.

We'll also work to increase the wellbeing of those who supply us with our materials and resources.

Our Annual report and accounts includes a sustainability report to show our progress, as well as how we're meeting our statutory and licence obligations.
