In 2021, we continued to push for policy changes which support a more sustainable built environment through our membership of industry and cross-sector groups, including: The Aldersgate Group, Supply Chain Sustainability School, the UK Green Building Council, Institute for Corporate Responsibility and Sustainability, IEMA, Build UK, National Social Value Taskforce, Social Value UK, and BSRIA.

Willmott Dixon people sit on the Boards of the Supply Chain Sustainability School, Aldersgate Group, Pagabo Foundation, Employers Forum for Reducing Reoffending and the National Social Value Taskforce. Our people also sit on working groups including the UKGBC’s Zero Carbon Buildings Industry Task Group, CIBSE Homes for the Future group and the CIWM Construction and Demolition Waste Forum.

Our people continued to influence and share best practice across the industry. They spoke at a range of events and conferences including Construction News, Edie Sustainability Leaders Conference, Supply Chain Sustainability School, Education Estates conference and the Built Environment Networking Conference. Our work featured in many publications including Construction Manager Magazine, Edie, the Architects Journal, Building Magazine, Fleet News and Construction News.


In Autumn 2021, we hosted a series of events discussing the key themes of COP26 and our approach to the climate crisis. Our CEO, Rick Willmott attended an in-person COP26 event, organised by Aldersgate Group and ScottishPower. He joined a panel of experts to discuss ambitious carbon reduction targets, which was chaired by Aldersgate Chairwoman and former UK Prime Minister Theresa May.
