Meeting Our Responsibilities
Our ambition is to continue to position sustainability at the heart of what we do and in the solutions we provide to our clients.
Our Blueprint seeks to further embed sustainability throughout Balfour Beatty’s operations by providing a robust framework. It captures the actions we need to take to ensure we remain viable in the long-term and is consistent with our value proposition. It builds on the lessons we have learnt as our Blueprint strategy has evolved.
Our framework is based on three pillars, which follow the classical three-dimensional sustainability model: economic, social and environmental. In our interpretation of this model they are named Profitable Markets, Healthy Communities and Environmental Limits.
The framework fully aligns with Balfour Beatty’s four Build to Last objectives: Lean, Expert, Trusted and Safe, linking our sustainability goals directly to our strategic business objectives. Within the framework, we have identified 22 measures that characterise success for a sustainable business.
