The promise of tomorrow begins with the action we take today. Our journey to deliver a sustainable future, begins with understanding our role in sustainability and embedding sustainable action in all that we do.
Raising awareness and understanding on sustainability issues is vital to shining a light on the part we play in contributing to sustainable development. Wood’s approach to sustainability seeks to deliver our strategy and goals through the actions of our people, and the behavioral change needed to achieve our vision for a better tomorrow. Informed by our stakeholder relationships, sustainability provides a holistic lens to view our stakeholder needs; creating balance between stakeholder priorities and our ability to deliver sustainable growth is key.
By embedding sustainability in Wood’s business strategy and reflecting this within our key governance structures, we aim to empower our people to take ownership of sustainability and help meet the needs of tomorrow through the actions we take today. We strive for an entire organisation engaged in maintaining and strengthening Wood’s position as a sustainable company through attaining ambitious sustainability goals as well as helping to deliver sustainable solutions that enable the global transition to a low carbon future.

Measuring our performance
By setting group wide goals on sustainability, we monitor performance against a range of KPIs linked to leadership bonus plans and Long-Term Business Incentive (LTIP) plans. Our sustainability goals evolve from our periodic materiality assessment and leadership discussions at board level, with additional KPIs proposed by our business functions to deliver sustainable value to both our business and stakeholders.
