...We have performed well against all of our 2015 commitments, in most cases well surpassing our targets. This is testament to the commitment and effort of people across the business, from support services to project teams and supply chain. While we've made excellent progress, we know there are many challenges ahead and we must continue to push boundaries. Over the last year we have been engaging with the business as well as other Royal BAM Group companies, to define what sustainability looks like for BAM in 2020 and beyond. Our ultimate goal is to have a positive impact, so we can deliver more value for clients. By collaborating with our supply chain, encouraging innovative thinking through our products, and realising the benefits of circular economic business models, we aim to have a net positive impact in the future.
We have already started to work towards these goals, for instance with the launch of BAM Energy, which helps to make use of renewable and energy efficiency technology cost effectively. By providing finance for additional carbon saving and energy generating technologies, capital is freed up to improve buildings themselves. This has had a positive impact in terms of wider carbon reduction and also on our clients and the end users of our buildings.
We continue to take a leadership position to sharing best practice, raising awareness and enabling discussions on important issues such as building performance, digital construction, information management and the circular economy.
During 2016 we will be defining our new targets and longer-term vision in alignment with Royal BAM Group's strategy for the period 2020: Building the present, creating the future.
