Working with Wildlife Trusts
By working with wildlife trusts we enhance the local natural environment using expert knowledge.
In 2016 we were one of the first construction companies to produce a biodiversity strategy. In 2017 we continued to work with our people to raise awareness, through communications and roadshows at our local company offices, of our ambition to enhance biodiversity on all of our sites. Biodiversity has now been included in our Project Environmental Plan, and, from 2018, it has been included as a new point in our 10 Point Project Sustainability Plan.
