AWE supports Responsible Business Week 2015

AWE is supporting Responsible Business Week 2015 and celebrating the organisations environmental and sustainability contribution as a responsible business.

Responsible Business Week is organised by Business in the Community (BITC) to raise awareness and champion the powerful role of business in creating a fairer and more sustainable society.

AWE has been working with its employees and local community to further improve the way the company recycles waste and looks to reduce its carbon foot print.

Last year, AWE achieved a number of responsible business goals including recycling, planting over 17,500 trees and shrubs and promoting the company car-sharing scheme to significantly reduce the number of driver-only vehicles on our sites.

Commenting on Responsible Business Week, Haydn Clulow, AWE Site Director said: “This week is extremely important as it recognises the valuable contribution companies make in becoming responsible businesses.  AWE continues its efforts to develop environmental and sustainability programmes as well as working with BITC to ensure we remain a responsible business in 2015 and beyond.” 

Notes to Editors

1.    AWE plays a crucial role in national defence by providing and maintaining warheads for Trident, the UK’s nuclear deterrent

2.    AWE is contracted to the Ministry of Defence (MOD) through a Government-owned Contractor Operated (GOCO) arrangement. Whilst our sites and facilities remain in government ownership, their management, day to day operations, and the maintenance of the nuclear stockpile is contracted to a private company AWE Management Limited (AWE ML). AWE ML is a consortium comprising three equal partners: Serco Group plc, the Lockheed Martin Corporation and Jacobs Engineering Group.
