Sustainability

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 meet the current and future needs of our customers.

To support our customers in the delivery of the energy transition, we continue to invest in our equipment, technology and people to ensure the delivery of safe, sustainable and profitable operations for our customers.

Our sustainability approach

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

These six 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, energy transition, ecological impact, business ethics, labour practices & human rights and supporting our communities.

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

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.

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

We are committed to minimising the impact of our operational activities on marine and land-based ecosystems. This includes supporting and enabling the efficient development of offshore renewable energy and helping our customers reduce emissions and minimise environmental impact.

The development of new technologies and delivery solutions including remote operations is further reducing the number of vessel days and people required offshore to undertake such activities.

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.

Supporting our communities

As an international employer, we are committed to being a good neighbour and making a positive contribution to the communities in which we work.

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.
