Responsibility No matter the location or work performed, we aim to build a better future by leaving a positive legacy at each project site around the world. Each year, KBR participates in some of the world’s largest, most complex projects in remote, diverse and challenging environments — from deserts to Deepwater fields, Arctic regions to rainforests, and urban areas to nature preserves. With each project, KBR assumes a responsibility for safe and successful completion — while meeting client expectations and benefiting our stakeholders.

Achieving these goals also means reducing our environmental impact, enhancing energy efficiencies, minimising lost-time incidents and injuries, and hiring and training local labour to create job opportunities and encourage the development of thriving and successful communities. KBR takes pride in working with local, indigenous, and minority- and women-owned vendors and suppliers, in addition to offering the technical assistance and counsel to enable new partners to qualify as suppliers for our company.

We meet — and frequently exceed — all established goals for local and diverse resourcing of labour, suppliers, vendors and materials.
Safety We empower employees, customers and contractors to display the courage to care by looking out for one another 24/7 through our ‘Zero Harm philosophy’. As a global corporate citizen, we believe we have a responsibility to the people and the communities in which we live and work. That’s why KBR maintains Health, Safety, Security & Environment (HSSE) as a core value for all employees and a key element in our Code of Business Conduct.

Establishing and incorporating HSSE responsibility and accountability is a priority within our organisation and it also creates value for our customers. Just as customers rely on our expertise to make the most efficient use of their assets, they also depend on us to help meet their objectives of financial performance, worker safety and environmental protection.

For KBR, safety is more than policies, procedures or rules; it is about being part of a safety culture, all-day every-day. This vision is embodied in KBR’s Zero Harm 24/7 initiative which empowers all our employees, customers and contractors to display the courage to care by looking out for one another. We envision the KBR Zero Harm philosophy extending into the personal lives of all employees where our people make safety-conscious decisions based on personal values.
