Every day we help millions of people by delivering innovative solutions to transform and simplify the connections between businesses and customers, governments and citizens. We partner with clients and provide them with the insight and cutting edge technologies that allow them to focus on what they do best and make peoples’ lives easier and simpler.
We create better outcomes for :
- our people – by providing an environment in which they can thrive and develop
- clients and customers – by delivering solutions, transforming businesses and services, and by delighting them
- suppliers and partners – by treating them fairly and encouraging them to deliver
- investors - by delivering improving returns
- society – by acting as a responsible business for the communities we serve.
For example, we…
…run London’s congestion charge and ultra-low emission zones on behalf of Transport for London

Our purpose: people
Protecting human rights
Our systems, policies and processes are set up to identify any potential instances of exploitation and, if found, to eradicate this from our business and supply chain. We want everyone who works for us to benefit from a working environment in which their human rights are respected. Anyone we do business with must also uphold these principles.
Collaboration with wider partners
In addition to our supply chain, we also recognise that there are risks in relation to modern slavery and human trafficking outside of our core stakeholder groups which is why we work closely with other partners such as recruitment agencies and trade unions.
We want to work with suppliers who share our values as we, in turn, treat them fairly and pay promptly. We’re committed to supporting more small and medium-sized businesses, and to increasing supply chain diversity and resilience. We benchmark ourselves against external indices and were the first business to be accredited by the Good Business Charter in 2020.
Our purpose: environment and sustainability
Our net zero roadmap
Underpinned by scientific targets, we’ve set out an ambitious roadmap to take us to net zero by 2035. These challenging targets are in line with global ambitions to limit warming to 1.5° and are strengthened by being linked to executive pay from 2022.
Reaching net zero by 2025
Our three phased approach is for us to reach operational net zero by 2025; operational and business travel net zero by 2030; and full net zero by 2035 including our supply chain, way ahead of the UK Government target of 2050.
How we’ll achieve this
We’ll achieve this by: reducing business travel emissions by 75% by 2030; transitioning our fleet to EV by 2032; moving to renewable power wherever available; continuing with building efficiency initiatives; and requiring our suppliers to meet set criteria.

Those areas are exactly where our expertise lies and why our services and solutions represent an important, powerful pivot for the future:

We offer technology-led, digitally-enabled services and solutions. We’re investing in digital and software development, partnering with global technology leaders.
We form longstanding partnerships with a wide range of clients, from blue chip businesses to the public sector, to transform their organisations by delivering insight and innovative solutions.

Our international delivery platform includes more than 18,000 people providing technology solutions and customer engagement services, principally in Europe, India and South Africa.
Our strategy for future growth is to create a simpler, stronger and more successful business which drives sustainable organic revenue growth and free cash flow. We’re focusing on winning more of the right work, extending debt maturities, investing in our asset base, technology and people, improving cash generation and reducing net debt with Portfolio disposals. With our strategy inflecting to revenue growth, whilst we continue to be innovative and creative, we expect to deliver positive sustainable free cash flow in 2022.
