Our community engagement approach aims to ensure we are a good neighbours by supporting the communities who live alongside and work with us whilst positively contributing to society’s progress overall. For example:

Marine and Cavendish Nuclear currently engage our communities through annual “Local Liaison Committees”. These are a requirement for their nuclear licenced sites, with an agenda focussed on that subject.

In the Aviation sector, community engagement is at BU / contract level rather than Sector. Sites tends to be at airports and Helicopters and Emergency Services is actively engaged with local hospitals. Firefighting are actively engagement for the betterment of local environment.

In the Land sector the defence sites are MOD owned and they would engage with communities.

More information about Local Communities can be found in our Annual Report – pages 75 to 76.
