2011 Sustainability Report published
5 April 2012 1 comment
In line with best practice, we produced a fully integrated annual report and accounts that also told our sustainability story. We also recognise that some stakeholders want more in-depth reporting of our sustainability performance and that’s when our sustainability report comes into play. It’s a fully interactive PDF document allowing readers to navigate to the sections of the report that most interest them, whether it’s a overview of our progress, through our new key messages section or a specific issue or key indicator captured in our GRI Index.
This is the fourth year we have asked an independent stakeholder panel to gives us their views on our sustainability reporting and provide recommendations on where we might improve. You can find their full statement on page 80 of the PDF.
We took significant steps on our sustainability journey in 2011, achieving a 17% reduction in our use of water (exceeding our 10% reduction target for 2012), a 45% reduction in waste to landfill and 34% of UK major materials were procured from recognised responsible sourcing schemes. Significant effort was devoted to employee engagement. Of the 17,000 employees that completed our sustainability course during year, over 60,000 pledges to change to more sustainable behaviours were pledged.
The highlight for me has been our continued progress into exploiting new growth opportunities in the green economy. We delivered £2.5bn of sustainable infrastructure worldwide in 2011, up from £2.3bn in 2010 and entered new multi-£bn markets in off-shore wind (transmission assets) and energy from waste.
