Kier believes corporate responsibility starts with running a safe, efficient and profitable business, so that we are in a strong position to share wider benefits with the communities where we operate. This means working in a responsible way, respecting our people and supply chain, making safety a priority and protecting the environment. It also means working hard to be a good neighbour and helping our customers and their communities by supporting local supply chains, community initiatives and good causes.
Sustainable business strategy
In our Strategy for a Sustainable Business; Responsible Business, Positive Outcomes, we measure our progress against 20 non-financial performance areas each year which sit under these four headings:
Governance: making sure we live up to the high standards we have set ourselves
People and Communities: preventing harm to our employees, contractors, local communities and being a good neighbour, by leading on the delivery of social value. In 2018 this will be over £150m of social value
Environment: considering the potential effect of our work on the environment - carbon emissions, waste, water use, biodiversity and environmental incidents - and influencing design, build and maintenance to take these factors into account
Marketplace: delivering on promises to our customers and to their communities and meeting high standards when it comes to treating our employees and supply chains fairly.
