Sustainability

We recognise that Sustainability is increasingly important to the Ministry of Defence (MOD) and the Defence Infrastructure Organisation (DIO), who are looking to Prime Contractors to continue to deliver sustainable solutions across their Estate.

Our strategy is represented below and is a framework for everything we do on Sustainability. Our objectives, targets, programmes and activities reflect its principles - as well as those of our client.

Our aim is to work with our client and our military end users to deliver sustainable solutions on the estate we manage, in turn helping to meet DIO's vision of an estate of the right size and quality that is sensitive to social and environmental needs.

Our approach involves:

  • Reducing the Carbon Footprint of the estate by finding and implementing scalable energy efficiency initiatives that return the highest possible carbon and financial savings
  • Using our Asset Upgrades and New Build programmes to design and deliver energy efficient buildings - embedding renewable technologies wherever possible
  • Reducing our Carbon Footprint by promoting sustainable travel by our people
  • Increasing waste recycled through our design, maintenance and construction activities
  • Raising the awareness of our people and suppliers in Sustainable Procurement and encouraging them to share our green values
  • Positively contributing to the communities in which we operate
