Our technology, products and the environment
We are very proud of the work we do to protect our military personnel who risk their lives to protect us. Through our technology we keep our society safe, make the jobs that our military personnel do less risky and ensure we are protecting our nations. Technology is at the heart of Ultra’s mission to ‘Innovate today for a safer tomorrow’.
In every market where we operate, Ultra’s work is about using our know-how and ingenuity to protect and defend what matters. We know that technology and harnessing technological innovation is key to supporting sustainable development. We are investing in our engineering teams across the Group, providing targeted training in sustainability in design, and we are always looking for new projects that support sustainable development. From a sustainability perspective, often, our projects require us to upgrade systems or keep existing complex systems operational for decades without having a significant impact on our customers’ operations. This approach typically saves time, money, and has a lesser effect on the use of the world’s raw materials and production of waste.
Sustainable Resources - Our products
Opportunities to improve product differentiation through improved energy efficiency outcomes for customers are a key part of our systems design partnering with customers and end users.
Environmental considerations are made throughout a product’s lifecycle, from concept through to disposal. All Ultra businesses ensure their practices and processes consider the environment – but we recognise that there is more to do in our industry. We work with suppliers to reduce the impact of our products and to take account of environmental factors in the materials and components used. Controls are in place at sites to drive efficiency and minimise waste, which is disposed of appropriately using specialist contractors where necessary.
