The company offsets its carbon emissions by investing in global programs to reduce carbon.
We have been a purpose based sustainable company since 1852. We consciously express our sustainable ambitions through our corporate values and actions.
Sustainability is an increasingly important differentiator in our sector- the ambitions and targets we have set in our 2030 Sustainability Strategy, ‘Now or Never, Our decisive decade‘ are core to our future business success and will safeguard our ability to operate in the long term. Remaining true to our purpose and values Now or Never will shape our people, our products and our business over the next 10 years and beyond.
Our approach to sustainability is structured around three themes:
Brilliant Buildings – Delivering buildings which are resilient to the impacts of our changing climate, conserve natural resources, use responsibly sourced low-carbon resources, minimise carbon emissions and the cost of ownership, whilst improving people’s health and wellbeing.
Building Lives – supporting the people and businesses in our communities to thrive with a focus on helping young people facing societal or personal barriers to access good careers. Our Building Lives theme and associated activities are guided by the Willmott Dixon Foundation.
Better Planet – Creating a better planet for future generations by putting the climate, biodiversity and resources crises at the heart of the way we do business. This includes our approach to carbon, waste and biodiversity.
