Community Investment

Community Investment
We are committed to supporting the communities in which we live and work. We do this through our corporate partnerships and structured programmes, by encouraging employees to share their time and expertise as volunteers and by supporting fundraising activities.
We support programs that are closely connected to our business, from encouraging young people to study science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) subjects and pursue engineering and technology careers, to working with organisations that support armed forces personnel and their families.
