Our Sustainability Outcomes

The United Nations defines sustainability as “meeting the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.” We have applied that definition in the context of our own Sustainability Policy where we have made a commitment to ‘creating lasting benefits through an integrated consideration of social, environmental and economic aspects in all that we do”.

The importance of sustainability drives us to meet the needs of today without compromising the needs of future generations and helps to ensure our projects, operations and the management of the road network are undertaken in a safe, reliable, and sustainable way.

This scorecard provides a snapshot of how well we performed against our Sustainability key area of focus complementing the reporting against our Operational Activities described earlier.
