As the largest geotechnical solutions specialist in the world, we have always seen our corporate social responsibilities as an important part of our business model. During the year, we adopted a refreshed Code of Business Conduct setting out clear and common standards of behaviour expected from all our employees along with those we do business with, and we also agreed a new Sustainability framework, based on the UN Global Goals for Sustainable Development (SDGs) that will assist us in developing our business and reporting on our progress in the right way.
Keller supports the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and in December 2016, management put forward a proposal as to how we would contribute to achieving the SDGs which was approved by the Health, Safety, Environment and Quality Committee.
We have chosen to focus on those SGDs that are of current material significance to our
operations and will be reporting annually on our progress against each of these:
- Good health and well-being
- Quality education
- Gender equality
- Decent work and economic growth
- Climate change
- Life on land
Our Sustainability report can be found on pages 36 to 40 of the Annual Report and Accounts.
