Social Value

Fighting climate change

Fighting climate change

In FY21 we made progress in the development of our environmental, social and governance (ESG) strategy despite managing financial issues. We recognise it is increasingly important to all our stakeholders, not least our people and our customers. Our activities have a significant impact on society and the environment, and sustainability is now an integral part of our corporate strategy and how we do business, but we need to focus more in this area. You can see more about how our new approach to sustainability, driven by our corporate purpose, is central to our business model and wider strategy. Key focus areas for the coming year include: • Materiality assessment • Progress the pathway to net zero, set science-based targets and reduce emissions •Conduct Chapter Zero Board readiness assessment • Focus on climate action: TCFD risk management and scenario planning • Establish a baseline and investigate reduction initiatives for water and waste • Progress sustainable transport solutions for Babcock and our customers We recognise we are at the start of our sustainability journey but are committed to acting now to reduce emissions, achieve our net zero goals and meet the expectations of all our stakeholders and society as a whole. In particular, we aspire to make a positive difference for the communities in which we operate and actively contribute towards the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). We are focused on minimising the impact of our operations on the environment, and working collaboratively with our customers and our supply chain to address the common challenges we all share, such as climate change. Our sustainability strategy underpins our corporate purpose: to create a safe and secure world, together. We do this by supporting the defence of nations, protecting communities and saving lives.
