Demonstrating our commitment to sustainability in Defence

Babcock is pleased to be an inaugural signatory of the ADS UK Defence ESG Charter, demonstrating our commitment to champion and drive sustainability in the sector.

The ‘UK Defence ESG Charter’ is a groundbreaking, unified agreement on behalf of the defence sector to highlight its ongoing support to environmental, social and governance considerations.

Alongside trade association ADS, eight UK defence OEMs form the inaugural signatories of the Charter, which enhances commitments made by the sector and provides a framework for greater ambitions around climate transition and clean technology; societal impact and governance and ethics.

David Lockwood, Babcock CEO said: “Babcock is proud to be a part of creating this important industry charter. Now more than ever, what we do matters. This collaborative effort will help us to drive action and generate prosperity, as we strive for excellence in service of creating a safe and secure world, together.”
