Barratt Developments PLC is the nation’s largest housebuilder.
Barratt’s vision ‘Building Excellence’ is to lead the future of housebuilding by putting customers at the heart of everything we do.
We deliver this vision by focusing on 4 priorities:
- Customer First
- Great Places
- Leading Construction
- Our People
and 5 core principles:
- Keeping People Safe
- Being a Trusted Partner
- Building Strong Community Relationships
- Safeguarding the Environment
- Ensuring the Financial Health of the Business
To build a sustainable business that delivers value for shareholders, employees, partners and communities we must act responsibly. Our approach to sustainability will help us to maximise long term value for communities, the environment and for the economy.
To embed sustainability throughout Barratt, we focus on the issues that matter to our customers, shareholders, employees and other key stakeholders, and have set long-term goals that define an ambitious future road map. We are committed to integrating our sustainability principles into the way we work, as set out in our Sustainability Policy.
We recognise that our supply chain are critical to help us achieve our vision, and we have committed to ‘continuous improvement and innovative solutions developed in collaboration with the supply chain’.
“We recognise the value that our supply chain brings to our business – it’s critical for us if we are to build more and better homes, creating sustainable places to live. So we are delighted to be partnering with the Supply Chain Sustainability School, to enable our supply chain to gain access to a wealth of knowledge on sustainability issues in the housebuilding sector but also the wider area of sustainability. For us it’s part of the wider objective of building beneficial long term relationships and innovating with our supply chain to meet our customers’ needs as well as the needs of the wider community in which we operate.”John Adams, Group Procurement Director
