The future depends on what we do today

Information on corporate sustainability (CS) governance and business conduct can be found in the Corporate Governance section of our Annual Report.

The Board sets the Group's approach to corporate sustainability via policy statements. Our CEO is the Board member responsible for corporate sustainability and for the Group’s performance, supported by Group-wide frameworks. A common management structure governs quality, safety, security and environment (QSSE). The Group technical and QSSE director, who reports to the CEO, is responsible for Group QSSE. Each Atkins business also has dedicated QSSE representatives.

CS-related Group policy statements include quality, health and safety and sustainability. We also have other internal policy statements including: business conduct (including anti-bribery and corruption), supply chain, risk management and communications. They are reviewed regularly and updated to reflect changes to legislation, emerging good practice and business needs.

You can request copies of these policy statements by sending an email to or clicking the links below:

If you have any concerns regarding the application of our policy statements or any other aspect of our business then you may follow our whistleblowing procedure to raise those concerns:
