Keltbray has published its sixth annual Sustainable Development Report, covering the Group’s progress in supporting the United Nations’ (UN) 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development to eradicate poverty and fight inequality and injustice.
The Report highlights the initiatives that Keltbray put in place in 2018 to tackle seven of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals as set by the UN:
- Zero hunger
- Good health and wellbeing
- Decent work and economic growth
- Industry innovation and infrastructure
- Reduced inequalities
- Sustainable cities and communities
- Climate action
Among the key highlights were a climb nine places to 36 in the Sunday Times Top Track 250 league table, an investment of around £10m in plant and machinery, a diversion of over 97.5% of its construction waste from landfill and fundraising efforts resulting in £152,644 in donations to charitable causes.
Chief Executive Officer for Keltbray Group, Brendan Kerr, said: “As a key player in developing and maintaining Britain’s built environment, it is our goal to make a positive contribution to the world we live and work in. This means putting sustainability at the heart of what we do and in the solutions we provide to our clients, to ensure we run a profitable business with a commitment to help society prosper.”
