In 2010 we launched a high-profile set of 15 Sustainability Commitments – one of the biggest programmes of environmental and social commitments in our sector.

These set our long-term sustainability agenda. They explain how we’ll deliver low-carbon nuclear responsibly, help customers, build a world-class culture and serve our communities.

We were thrilled to have our efforts rewarded in the Business in the Community Corporate Responsibility Index in 2013 where we were awarded Platinum Big Tick status for our approach to sustainability. With an overall score of 95%, we were also rated best in our sector. This is a great achievement and demonstrates our long commitment to being a responsible business.

Our drive to be a sustainable and responsible company has been externally recognised. In 2013 we won a number of awards, including six further Big Ticks in the Business in the Community (BITC) Responsible Business Awards and a BITC Local and Regional Impact Award in the Employee Volunteer of the Year category.
