We know that what we do has a lasting impact on people’s lives so we are investing in training and job creation, skills and education programmes. We want to be at the forefront of the UK’s long-term industrial transformation, and in doing so, help to close the equality gaps that we see in our society today. An investment in people is an investment in our country and our company’s future – whether it’s creating thousands of job opportunities or reaching out to our communities through our visitor centres.
We are at the forefront of our industry’s transformation by investing in major new infrastructure, including the UK’s first nuclear power station in a generation. Our technology investments transform how we work, think and connect with each other – empowering our people to band together and do good, both in our business and their communities. And by reaching out to our communities we're inspiring a new generation of scientists and engineers – who we hope will one day join us on the journey to our low-carbon future.
Our operations throughout the UK also provide substantial economic and social benefit to the people and communities with which we work. We support thousands of jobs throughout the UK and millions of pounds is invested directly and in-directly into regional economies throughout the country. Our latest socio-economic report provides more detail of the wider benefit provided by our operations and is available to download here.
