Sustainable Development Goals

The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, adopted by all United Nations Member States in 2015, provides a shared blueprint to end poverty, protect the planet, and ensure peace and prosperity for all, now and in the future. This is set out through 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

Amey's purpose and opportunity to deliver real change, focuses on SDG 9 (industry, innovation and infrastructure) and SDG 11 (sustainable cities and communities).  However, given the range of our services we also contribute to other goals


Amey’s core capabilities and services are designing, maintaining and investing in our country’s services and infrastructure. We supply important utilities like water, gas and electricity to homes. We make journeys better by maintaining roads, railways and airports. We keep facilities running smoothly and improve social housing and schools. To ensure industry and infrastructure is fit for the future, Amey is promoting low carbon technologies, circular approaches that tackle climate change and resource shortages, and data-drive business models which support social value.

Around 5 billion people are expected to live in cities by 2030. Amey has a role to play in designing efficient, and connected cities and communities, that deliver greatest value to their citizens. We know public engagement must be at the heart of this development and we will use the increasing availability of social media and smartphone technology to engage with those using public services.
