Binnies launches new Mission, Vision and Values

On 28 June 2021, Binnies unveiled its Mission, Vision and Values, defining the purpose of the organisation and instilling a sense of pride and identity for its employees.

Six months after the acquisition of the Black and Veatch UK, Hong Kong and Singapore water businesses, Binnies is proud to launch a new Mission, Vision and Values (MVV) that we will hold fast to as we deliver Binnies’ services. The MVV has been developed over the last few months by the senior Binnies divisional team, supported by business unit members, who were allowed the opportunity to set out Binnies’ purpose, identity and core values for employees to uphold and, ultimately, our clients and partners to value.

The team wanted to ensure that the new MVV links and is aligned to the nine guiding principles of the RSK group, which include a commitment to supporting the UN Sustainable Development Goals. As we deliver in a more demanding and challenging world Binnies will require a culture that is focused on innovative and sustainable solutions for our clients and the environments in which we work. Building on our Binnies past, we want to create a future of positive influence that will also enable us, in later years, to reflect with pride on our achievements.


To be a world-leader in delivering innovative and sustainable
solutions in the water and environmental sectors.


We collaborate with our clients and partners and
empower our staff to deliver safer, smarter and
more sustainable solutions to improve the lives of
every person in our communities whilst supporting
the UN Sustainable Development Goals.

Binnies launches new Mission, Vision and Values

Our actions and behaviours are what those around us will remember and feel about us, and that is why we have created ‘Engaged’ – a behaviour-based programme around the values that matter the most to Binnies. To become an Engaged graduate, you will complete seven online modules that take you though each of the seven behaviours. You will then be able to take these behaviours back to the business, share them, use them and talk about them. We all have individual talents and behaviour preferences, and we are all capable of great things, but it is when we work together, pulling from and enabling our different strengths, listening to and building on each other’s contributions, that we go beyond great to truly amazing achievements. Please watch this video where our employees share how employing the ENGAGED behaviours has helped them be their best.

“I am excited about Binnies’ future and, with our employees’ help, I want to balance the heritage of our more than 100-year brand with our aspirations for growth and excellence. We are delighted to be able to profile the Binnies name again in the global water and environmental sectors and we are proud of our heritage and history of past achievements. We have the opportunity to build upon our legacy, and determining our culture and future means we can all help to shape what Binnies will represent to our clients and ourselves as employees. When the opportunity allows, I look forward to engaging with as many Binnies people as I can. I will listen to your ideas on how we can make an already great business into one that is recognised across the world for its innovative and sustainable engineering expertise delivered by employees who really care about each other.” Gary Young. Binnies Divisional Managing Director.

Please watch our Binnies 100 Years of Engineering Excellence video, which tracks the progress of the company from the early 1900s through to the present day and includes our aspirations for the future.
