At the very heart of what we do.

We help people make decisions about lives and livelihoods. So, sustainability is at the very heart of our purpose: working at the forefront of weather and climate science for protection, prosperity, and well-being.

We have provided regular, accurate forecasts for over 160 years, helping people choose what to do, and when – day-to-day and over the long-term. Today, we might help someone determine whether to hang out their washing. Tomorrow, we might help protect critical national infrastructure. Further into the future, our science will help individuals, governments and businesses around the world make informed decisions to adapt and thrive in a changing climate.

Responsible business

We promote sustainability on a daily basis through four key themes. Behind each theme are personal stories. Read some of the personal stories here:
