Purpose

Enabling fixed capital investments that support the advancement of sustainable human development.

Vision

    1. To be a leading multinational engineering and construction group that applies its project life cycle capabilities to optimise client’s fixed capital investment.

SET FOR SUSTAINABLE GROWTH

We enable fixed capital investment that allows people to live better lives. We are both a service provider to society and an integral part of the socioeconomic ecosystem.

Our Purpose connects our capabilities to the investment our clients make in the infrastructure required for long-term economic and social development of industries, countries and communities. We design, construct and maintain the mining operations that provide the resources on which all real economic activity is based; the plant that turns gas, water and sun into electricity, and takes it to industries and individuals; and the complex transport infrastructure like roads, tunnels and water works that serve growing urban populations.

Our Values guide us individually and collectively in everything we do, in every country we work, and our culture of Engineered Excellence defines, governs and informs our management approaches throughout the organisation. This reinforces the competitiveness of our operations, and our reputation as a well-governed, values-driven and ethical multinational organisation, which is how we define the leadership aspiration in our Vision.

Global Reach

The Group’s geographic footprint is focused on establishing a permanent presence in high-growth regions for our clients. We also support clients in other geographies where we do not have a permanent presence, occasionally in joint venture with local partners.

Global Reach

Business model resilience

Long-term demand drivers of global population growth, rapid urbanisation and economic growth, inform the Group’s focus on selected global natural resources market sectors. The relevance of natural resources – of commodities, utilities, energy and infrastructure – to a post-COVID-19 world is clear. The Group’s diversified exposure to these activities positions it to benefit from economic stimulus centred on infrastructure development and opportunities emerging from the shift to lower-carbon and renewable energy sources.

Because the Group is exposed to the cyclicality of commodity demand, its business model is designed to diversify its earnings potential through the cycle. The combination of portfolio, geographic and capability diversification across our business platforms, provides a blend of revenue and earnings potential across our market sectors. This buffers the Group against over-exposure to the risk dynamics in any one market sector, each of which respond differently to commodity demand and supply cycles.

  • The Group’s geographic footprint is focused on establishing a permanent presence in high-growth regions for our clients. We also support clients on an ad hoc basis in other geographies where we do not have a permanent presence.
  • The Group’s capabilities across the project life cycle enable us to provide a seamless and competitive service offering, while diversifying our revenue and margin mix.
  • The Group identifies high-growth complementary markets based on the regional capabilities and competitive advantages of the platforms.
