Our Purpose: Our people, through their leading expertise, create a legacy of outstanding value for our clients, environment, and communities.

This Sustainability Policy sets out our aspirations, commitments, and actions to respond to the global and local sustainability challenges facing our natural environment and society. It will support us in credibly delivering on Our Pathway (Purpose and Values) and demonstrating our contribution to the Sustainable Development Goals in our own operations, and through the work we do with our clients. We will update the Policy as we develop and implement our strategic response in each of our three impact areas.

Our greatest impacts are in the following three areas:

  • Provision of targeted sustainability services for our clients
  • Our ability to deliver sustainable outcomes across all our projects
  • Our people, communities, and the footprint of our operations

In this policy, we consider how our collective actions can reduce negative impacts and maximise positive impacts in each area.
