We anticipate and respond to the changing demands of our markets, offer long-term value to our customers and achieve sustainable shareholder returns.

Our 2014 target: 7% compound annual growth rate to 2018

Amey has continued to thrive and grow throughout the economic downturn and is now one of the most diverse support service providers in the UK public and regulated sectors. We have set ourselves a series of ambitious growth targets and aim to be a £3 billion turnover business by 2018.

Governance:

Sustainability is integral to our business strategy and as such our Chief Executive Officer and our Executive Committee take overall responsibility for sustainability. They are supported by core functions, such as Health, Safety, Environment and Quality (HSEQ), which take co-ordination roles by spearheading various cross-company working groups, for example, our Inclusion Steering Group and our green travel and transport working group.

Business ethics:

We believe in conducting business to the highest ethical standards and have produced a Code of Ethics for all employees and suppliers. We recognise we have a responsibility to take a robust approach to slavery and human trafficking and take a zero tolerance approach to non-compliance with the Act in any part of our business or our supply chain, as outlined in our ‘Slavery and Human Trafficking Statement’.

Risk management:

All sustainability risks are identified, weighted and reviewed by our Risk Management Committee. These risks are monitored and managed at a corporate and divisional level.

Stakeholder engagement

We engage with a diverse range of stakeholders, including customers, suppliers, partners, employers and end users. This helps us to understand their needs and allows us to influence developments in sustainability. Building effective engagement communication channels is essential for us to achieve continuous economic, social and environmental improvement in the way we deliver our services.
