We’re creating shared value for our customers, suppliers, local communities and our people

The teams that make up today’s Carillion are part of a 200-year heritage of creating and serving award-winning infrastructure in cities across the world. We build and maintain hospitals and schools; we connect communities with roads and railways; and we inspire healthier environments where commerce can thrive.

“Embedding sustainability in everything we do makes us a more effective, successful and inspiring company to invest in and do business with, but fundamentally a more engaging and welcoming place to attract, develop and retain talented, loyal people.”

Richard Howson, Group Chief Executive
