Protecting the world we all live in

Being environmentally sustainable and responsible is a duty we take seriously:

  • We work hard to understand the impact we have on the environment.
  • We have measures in place to reduce our carbon footprint and our waste.
  • Our UK estate has an environmental management system which is ISO 14001 certified.
  • We recognise the importance of using technology to address issues like climate change. Our scientists and engineers have developed solutions in low-carbon transport and renewable energy that will help customers meet the sustainability challenges they face.
  • We are making a positive environmental contribution through proactive conservation activities on some of our sites.

Some of the UK sites we own and operate on behalf of the MOD under the Long Term Partnering Agreement contain valuable conservation areas, many of which are of national or international importance, including Sites of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) and Special Areas of Conservation. These provide areas of undisturbed land for wildlife to flourish and help preserve habitats that would otherwise be lost. We take our stewardship of these conservation areas very seriously. By maintaining and enhancing their condition we make a valuable contribution to national biodiversity objectives.

In 2013 we won the MOD’s top conservation award – the Silver Otter.
