Sustainable development is defined in Highway’s England’s licence as “encouraging economic growth while protecting the environment and improving safety and quality of life for current and future generations”.

This strategy is designed to communicate the company’s approach and priorities for sustainable development to its key stakeholders. Highway’s England is keen to ensure its action in the future will further reduce the impact of its activities seeking a long-term and sustainable benefit to the environment and the communities it serves.
