Our planet and societies are currently facing enormous challenges. It is the responsibility of us all to collaborate and work towards overcoming these and leaving a lasting positive legacy for future generations. To do this, all our actions should ensure we are protecting the planet, supporting our communities and delivering long-term value for all our stakeholders. These are the pillars that drive our sustainability vision.

To think exceptional is not aspiration at WJ, it is a standard that we encourage all of our team to achieve. This has led to us establishing an award-winning safety and workforce engagement culture. Yet, as an industry leader, we aim to move beyond this and continue to be a beacon of how business must operate to help realise a sustainable future for all.

This involves; Supporting Our Communities, whether they are local communities we are working in, our global community or even our own employees through training and new opportunities; Protecting The Planet through carbon reduction and prevention initiatives, or creating beautiful spaces for our everyday lives; and Delivering Long-Term Value, both economic and social through our business activities and throughout our entire supply chain.





Thinking Community


Our WJ Thinking Community initiative is an employee and community-led initiative that enables our stakeholders to utilise WJ’s unique resources to support causes and projects that are meaningful to them. It supports them in delivering real social value and inspiring as many lives as possible within the communities in which they live and work.

Through the initiative, we have collaborated with our partners throughout the supply chain, which has enabled us to draw on even more resources then normally possible. By doing this we have been able to deliver an even greater level of value to our communities. To see the type of projects we have been involved,

Fairness, Inclusion and Respect (FIR)

WJ are gold standard members of the SCSS and have been committed to FIR since its inception with over 10 FIR Ambassadors and representation on the leading industry stakeholders steering group.

The FIR programme provides, free, industry-endorsed training and resources, guidance and materials, that supports businesses to be more innovative and profitable by addressing workplace culture challenges and helps attract and retain people from the full pool of talent.

You can access free online resources (the FIR Toolkit) and attend free training workshops. As an employer we help you to meet your legal obligations around equality, diversity and anti-discrimination and empower your people to make your workplace more supportive for all.

Promoting a culture of fairness, inclusion and respect brings many business benefits to the companies that work to achieve it.  As a sector, we need to embrace FIR in order to attract, recruit, train and retain the skills in order to address the industry-wide skills shortage.

Clients and large contractors are increasingly expecting their supply chain partners to work with them to achieve this.
