Our Mission

NIRAS-LTS works on some of the planet’s most important global challenges. We are strongly driven by our mission–with a set of core values and real purpose. We want to leave a positive footprint on the world, contributing to a more just, equal, and environmentally and socially sustainable world.

Our core values shape all our company policy and practice:

“Do the right thing”

We believe that as a company we have moral obligations as well as commercial ones. We have strong ethics and always aim to work for good. The sustainability of our business and positive social and environmental impacts are more important to us than maximising profits in the short-term. Above all, we treat others in the same manner we hoped to be treated with honesty, fairness, integrity and reliability.

“Achieve Excellence”

We place technical excellence at the heart of our business. Our success is always a result of our good teamwork – everyone contributes to excellence. This means we do good work well, we add value to our clients, and we strive to be useful. We make excellence a habit, and we aim for continual improvement We learn from our experiences and aim to continuously improve. We want to do the best job possible and innovate where appropriate.

“Take responsibility”

We are committed to making all our work count. Our company operates inclusively and, empowered by a supportive culture, we get stuck in and take ownership of our own work. Our open and inclusive nature of operating means we all feel part of something that we want to contribute to. We proactively contribute and support our team-mates to achieve shared goals.

Alongside NIRAS Group, we support the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals in everything we do. We have been a participant of the UN Global Compact since 2017, and we subscribe to its ten principles (covering human rights, labour standards, the environment and anti-corruption). Our related policies can be found here and our reporting on progress against the Compact is here.

We aim for continual improvement in the quality of our work, and are certified to the ISO 9001 quality management system.
