In 2021, we launched Phase 1 of our Responsible Business Strategy – called ‘135 Henry Boot’. This enabled us to demonstrate our commitment to being a responsible business and launch three important strategic initiatives: a Community Partnership Plan (CPP), an Equality, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) Strategy, and a Net Zero Carbon (NZC) Framework.
In the same year, we established our Responsible Business Committee to provide Board level oversight and scrutiny of the Group’s responsible business performance. Board and Executive Committee members were appointed sponsors of our responsible business initiatives and significant engagement was undertaken with our people-led working groups in order to engage and empower our people to inform and influence our responsible business approach.
All of this has put us in a strong position to develop and deliver Phase 2 of our Responsible Business Strategy. Phase 2 sets ambitious objectives and targets for the medium term, ensuring we maintain our bold and determined approach to achieving significant environmental and social value through our work.
We look forward with confidence to generating even more meaningful and long-term value for our people, places, planet and partners in the years ahead.
