Business Sustainability

We understand that the future is what we make it, and that is why we take a long-term approach and deliver enduring outcomes that strengthen communities.

We live in a world where there is increasing population, mass urbanisation, climate-related impacts, energy demand, food and water shortages, and a growing gap between the rich and poor. Cities and regional centres of the future will need collective leadership to become more productive, sustainable, liveable and inclusive.

Our Sustainability Pathway is a framework that is based on three enduring goals: Great Place to Work; Better Lives and Future Thinking. It covers all geographies, places equal emphasis on our portfolios and takes responsibility for the total impact across our value chain.

Our goals, supported by 12 opportunities, 30 focus areas and 10 project sustainability elements, guide how the business develops and executes its activities over the next ten years and beyond.

To measure our success, these goals are linked to quantifiable time-bound targets. Our progress against these will help us optimise our business, increase our contribution towards the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals and build a more sustainable future for all.

Sustainability Pathway

Given we are a project based business, it is imperative that sustainability principles are applied consistently across all our projects. Our three goals are supported by 10 project sustainability elements that should be considered at all times. Importantly, these elements align well with the main industry sustainability rating schemes.
