Our technology

With a growing portfolio of products and an increasingly comprehensive range of services our investment in Research and Technology is very important. Two-thirds of our investment is aimed at improving the environmental performance of our products, for example investing in low-carbon technologies like nuclear energy.

Our investment goes into technologies that help improve the effectiveness of our development programmes, as well as technologies that we intend to take to market. We think it is important to achieve the right mix of innovation, investment and risk taking.

As a global Group, we conduct research and technology programmes on behalf of governments, state and regional bodies around the world.
