Kier appoints new head of sustainability for its Construction business

Kier has appointed Anna Baker as head of sustainability for its Construction business. This latest appointment builds on the Group’s newly formed Responsible Business team and underlines its commitment to sustainably delivering infrastructure which is vital to the UK.

Anna will be responsible for delivering Kier Construction’s targets as part of the Group’s Building for a Sustainable World. These include achieving net zero carbon across business operations by 2039, eliminating avoidable waste by 2035, the delivery of 30p in every £ of impactful social value, and helping customers deliver on their sustainability targets, working with them to co-create sustainability solutions.

Anna Baker said: “This is an exciting time to join Kier, a business I’ve long admired. With so much great work already underway, I’m looking forward to bringing my experience to the role and leading on the next steps of Kier’s sustainability journey for the Construction business.”


Prior to joining Kier, Anna was at Careys where she headed up their sustainability team. With over 17 years’ experience in the sector, Anna has extensive experience in developing and delivering sustainability strategies, as well as sustainable procurement. At Kier, she will also play a key part in supporting its clients and supply chain to deliver their sustainability plans.

Louisa Finlay, managing director of Clients and Markets at Kier Construction, said: “I am delighted Anna is joining us to spearhead sustainability in our Construction business. Sustainably delivering infrastructure which is vital to the UK is at the heart of our purpose. We are committed to supporting the transformation of this industry, through net zero carbon solutions and leaving lasting legacies through our work.

“Anna’s drive to really make a difference and proven ability to see the big picture will complement the work being done across the Group to achieve our targets in sustainability.”

Kier’s focus on sustainability has seen it recently deliver the UK’s first Passivhaus leisure centre, as well as introducing a number of carbon reduction measures, including a no idling policy across all of the Group’s sites, offices and depots.
