Improving people's lives with smart infrastructure solutions

Our purpose is to improve people’s lives by delivering integrated leading edge smart infrastructure solutions to meet national needs across the UK’s energy, water, transportation and defence markets. We offer our clients leading edge solutions that are digitally optimised across the whole life cycle of their assets by integrating five core services. Future-shaping strategic consultancy, consultancy and advisory, digital technology solutions, asset optimisation and complex programme delivery.

In 2016 Costain launched the next phase in its ‘Costain Cares’ journey, the ’Engineering A Sustainable Tomorrow’ strategy which is based upon its four sustainability goals:

  1. Ensuring Costain is a safe and great place to work;
  2. Creating a better environment;
  3. Supporting our local communities and leaving a positive lasting legacy;
  4. Providing better solutions for the marketplace.

In its strategy, Costain has committed to promoting responsible business practice and challenging norms to ensure that it is an industry-leading sustainable business.

Why a Partner?

In joining the School, Costain are committed to encouraging our supply chain to embark on their own sustainability journey. By utilising the Schools resources to upskill their knowledge and credentials, our supply chain partners will in turn enhance our sustainability offering to meet the challenges of tomorrow.

“We have a clear purpose at Costain to improve people’s lives. Both through the services we provide and in the way we operate. Being a responsible business underpins everything we do.”
