Creating a better tomorrow

One of the most significant challenges facing our industry is the increased demand on being able to deliver sustainable sources of energy as we transition to a lower carbon future. 

We are committed to meeting this challenge to continuously improve the sustainability performance of our business and support our customers in the delivery of the energy transition.

Sustainable business means that we continuously rethink what we do and how we do it. We therefore recognise the importance of setting strong sustainability foundations and will continue to build upon these by establishing action plans and targets.

Our sustainability approach

Ashtead Technology’s approach to sustainability is outlined in our Sustainability policy which is focused on five priorities that are aligned with the ten principals of the UN Global Compact.

These five priorities, selected based on their relevance and importance to our business currently, have been mapped against the UN’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) which are designed to help organisations shape priorities and aspirations for sustainable development efforts around a common framework.

Our sustainability priorities are employee health, safety & wellbeing, labour practices & human rights, energy transition, ecological impact and business ethics.

All of these are critical in us delivering sustainable and profitable growth while satisfying our ethical, legal and contractual obligations.

Sustainability is an important topic for all companies as greater consideration is given to how our actions and decisions now will impact our planet and the future world we live in.

– Allan Pirie, CEO

Employee health, safety and wellbeing

Ensuring our people are kept safe and well and raising awareness of potential dangers related to our operations and locations, is of paramount importance to us.

We also offer career development and continuous learning and are committed to promoting an open and honest working culture.

Labour practices & human rights

Our current and future success is also underpinned by our ability to recruit, retain and motivate high-quality, skilled employees and contractor personnel.

Ashtead Technology respects and supports internationally accepted human and labour rights principles.

Energy transition

Offshore renewable energy has become an important part of our business now accounting for a significant part of our Group revenue. 

With the technology and know-how needed to solve underwater survey, mechanical and asset integrity challenges, Ashtead Technology has a growing track record in the delivery of offshore wind projects ranging from pre-survey support & seabed mapping through to O&M and decommissioning work.

Ecological impact

In addition to minimising our own emissions, we are committed to providing our customers with improved technology and delivery solutions that enable them to reduce the environmental impact of their own operations.

Business ethics

Doing business with integrity is imperative at Ashtead Technology. We adopt the highest ethical standards and corporate governance practices.

The governance structures we set help translate the culture we aim to create through the collective actions of our people and the focus we place on delivering sustainable value.
