ABOUT OUR REPORT

KBRs Corporate Sustainability Report, Built on Values Our Story Continues, discloses our significant social, environmental and economic impacts to provide
our stakeholders a way to assess our commitment to corporate sustainability. Our stakeholders include shareholders, customers, employees, government and
industry partners, and the communities we serve.
The Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) promotes the use of sustainability reporting as a way for organizations to become more transparent. GRIs mission is to make
sustainability reporting standard practice.
This report, which covers business activity in calendar year January 1, 2014 to December 31, 2014, has been prepared according to GRI G4 Core guidelines and
reflects KBRs relevant and material aspects of sustainable development. Previous reports were published on a three-year basis. With this report, our third, we
are moving toward an annual publication.

2014 KBR SUSTAINABILITY REPORT

A MESSAGE FROM OUR PRESIDENT AND CEO

We Deliver.
As a company that develops technology, designs and
builds energy infrastructure and provides services to
government clients around the world, we have the potential
to leave lasting footprints wherever we go. At KBR our
philosophy has always been to treat other peoples
communities with the same respect as our own. We
focus on Health, Safety, Security and Environment (HSSE)
because we believe in leaving a place as good as, or even
better than, we found it.
The theme of this years report Built on Values reflects our commitment
to doing the right thing for our people, our clients and partners, and the
communities and countries in which we do business.
When I joined this company as CEO in June of 2014, I knew I was coming
into an organization with a 100-year history of serving clients wherever
and whenever they needed KBR to be. Whether its providing the technology
and consulting know-how to develop our customers valuable global assets;
designing and constructing the infrastructure and facilities to develop the
worlds energy resources; providing support and services for men and
women of their countries armed forces; or navigating the intricacies of
undertaking major projects in geopolitically or culturally sensitive
environments, KBR delivers.
However, KBRs proud tradition of service and accountability is not an end.
Rather it inspires a pressing and continuing commitment to live up to the
ideals established by those who came before us and to advance those
ideals for the next generation of KBR leaders and employees.

In 2014 we took steps to move our company toward a more sustainable


future.
Safety has been a core value of KBR since 1961 when Brown & Root
founder Herman Brown distributed a letter to each employee that
became the basis for our safety programs. In August we appointed a Vice
President of Health, Safety, Security and Environment (HSSE) and for the
first time established a direct line of HSSE reporting to the office of the
CEO, emphasizing our commitment to Zero Harm starting at the highest
levels of KBR and continuing throughout the organization.

In November we introduced our Zero Harm safety program. More than


merely an initiative, Zero Harm is a vision. It establishes a culture of
safety where safe execution is non-negotiable and no incidents are
tolerated. With an emphasis on training, personal responsibility and
accountability, Zero Harm underscores the belief that all incidents are
preventable and empowers everyone in the organization to avoid any
situation that could put our employees, subcontractors or clients at risk.

As part of our commitment to economic sustainability we conducted a


major strategic review of our operations and in December announced a
major business transformation creating a new KBR focused on our core
strengths in consulting, technology, engineering and construction, and
government services and structured along delivery lines that will enable
us to meet the expectations of our customers and other stakeholders.
This, combined with reduced complexity, will provide a more robust
balance sheet, greater accountability and empowerment for our people,
and position KBR to meet the challenges of the future.

In an effort to encourage greater communication and transparency,


KBRs Executive Leadership Team began seeking opinions throughout
the organization including from the KBR IMPACT Group the global
network for KBRs future leaders on how to bring alive the actions that
ultimately demonstrate our values and drive our day-to-day business
activities. Together we defined a collection of core behaviors that form
the backbone of our corporate culture and reinforce our shared mission
of We Deliver.

Commitment

2014 KBR SUSTAINABILITY REPORT

A MESSAGE FROM OUR PRESIDENT AND CEO

We Deliver.
KBRS BEHAVIORS ARE:
WE DELIVER

We are committed to standing by our promises


to deliver projects through collaboration, discipline, and the KBR Way.
WE VALUE OUR PEOPLE

We value and respect our employees as people.


We are committed to Zero Harm for every person.
We emphasize development of each person to
reach his or her full potential.
WE ARE PEOPLE OF INTEGRITY

We are people of character. We value honesty,


trust, courage, prudence, and tenacity. We will
not sacrifice our integrity.
WE EMPOWER OUR EMPLOYEES

We trust our employees to be independent


decision makers while being held accountable to
quality and delivery. We enable our employees
to be proactive in their work and adaptive to
change.
WE LEAD BY EXAMPLE

We own our work, individually and as a


company. We have a passion to deliver high
quality work and a will to succeed. We value the
success of KBR over individual success. We are
ONE KBR.

KBR is a company of people, more than 25,000 employees doing business in


70 countries, and it is to our people who we owe our best effort. We conduct
business ethics training and have a robust code of conduct that applies to all
employees and reflects how highly we value principled business practices.
We believe that every employee has the right to expect a safe, healthy workplace and so we begin meetings with a safety moment, discussing specific
on-the-job risks and how to mitigate them. Our Zero Harm culture underscores
and supports our safety commitments.

To do this requires the will and the courage to adapt to an ever-changing and
challenging future by understanding and meeting the needs of customers in
diverse markets without succumbing to market volatility and risk. It means
responding to the concerns and values of all of our neighbors in a respectful
and accepting manner in accordance with the customs and needs of each
community in which we operate. It means understanding that a company
thrives not just by capturing markets, but by serving the people, cities and
countries of our global community.

In addition to providing training, skill-enhancing and development


opportunities to employees in our offices and worksites, we also work
with local community colleges to identify needed job training courses in order
to help build and maintain the workforce of the future. Were providing jobs to
local people, fair trade opportunities to local companies and support to
local communities.

We are honored to have the opportunity to work with clients around the
world building the projects of the future and helping to contribute to a better
tomorrow for everyone.

In turn, KBR employees commit thousands of hours to their communities


supporting schools, cleaning parks, funding playgrounds, planting trees and
providing much needed supplies and assistance to those in the communities
who need it most. We also give hundreds of thousands of dollars to charitable
organizations around the globe to help support worthy causes aimed at
providing more educational opportunities, increased health or prevention
benefits, and environmental improvements in the communities in which
we live and work.
At KBR we understand that building a sustainable future one that is built
on values is a never-ending process. In todays global society, the role of
a corporation goes beyond providing returns to shareholders, wages to
employees, and products and services to its immediate customers. We
believe we have a responsibility to also make our world a better place
and we embrace that responsibility.

KBR President and CEO

2014 KBR SUSTAINABILITY REPORT

Our Employees
CODE OF BUSINESS CONDUCT (COBC)
At KBR we believe that integrity is the most
important value we hold, and it must never be
sacrificed for the sake of profits. This belief is
reflected in our COBC the ethical standards and
legal principles that are the foundation of our
company. KBRs COBC influences every aspect of
our business, from how we help our customers
develop their resources, to the way we interact
with the communities where we live and work,
to how we treat our people and everyone with
whom we come into contact.
KBRs Board of Directors adopted the COBC to
establish a common set of ethical standards and
legal principles that the company expects every
employee to exhibit when dealing with clients,
communities and each other. KBR also expects
third parties working on behalf of the company
to adhere to the same ethical standards, and will
not condone any illegal or unethical actions.
KBR conducts its business in compliance with all
applicable laws and in accordance with ethical
standards. In some situations, the applicable
laws of the United States may conflict with those
of another country. In such cases, the company
will endeavor to resolve such conflicts following
the guidance of our Legal Department. Where
such a conflict cannot be resolved, the applicable
laws of the United States will be observed and
complied with.
It is the personal responsibility of each employee
to adhere to the standards and restrictions
applicable to his or her assigned duties and
responsibilities, whether imposed by applicable
laws or the COBC. Each employee must avoid any

activities that would involve the company in any


practice that is not in compliance with the COBC.
Any employee who does not adhere to such
standards and restrictions is acting outside the
scope of his or her employment, responsibilities
or agency.
Beyond legal compliance, all employees are
expected to observe high standards of business
and personal ethics in the discharge of their assigned duties and responsibilities. This requires
the practice of fair dealing, honesty and integrity
by employees in every aspect of engaging with
company employees, the public, the business
community, shareholders, customers, suppliers,
partners, competitors and governmental and
regulatory authorities. Employees, when acting
on behalf of the company, will not take unfair
advantage through manipulation, concealment,
abuse of privileged information, misrepresentation of material facts, or other unfair practices.
Employees have the responsibility to read,
understand, and comply with the COBC and
to participate in company-mandated COBC
training. Any employee who compromises or
violates the provisions of the COBC may be
subject to disciplinary action including
termination and, if applicable, criminal or
civil proceedings.
Examples of conduct that may result in
disciplinary action include violating COBC
policy, requesting others violate COBC policy,
or failing to promptly report a known or
suspected COBC violation.

When in doubt about the propriety of a particular


course of action, employees are encouraged to
contact the Ethics Hotline or any member of the
Law Department.
Full disclosure of our COBC can be found at
https://www.kbr.com/Documents/COBC_English.pdf

ETHICS
The ethical principles contained in our COBC
demonstrate our commitment to perform our
mission with the highest integrity. KBR offers an
independently operated, global ethics hotline for
reporting possible violations of the KBR COBC or
applicable anti-corruptions laws.
In the United States in 2014, there were 24
discrimination claims resolved in mediation or
arbitration through KBRs Dispute Resolution
Program and one harassment claim resolved in
arbitration. Globally, in 2014, KBRs Ethics Hotline
received 465 calls, with 47 percent related to
COBC issues.

We have reinvigorated our safety program through


a series of campaigns aimed at realignment and
refocus our efforts by creating a step change that
makes a good program greater.

measures and tracks the level of engagement


that project leadership expends towards
safety initiatives.
Keys to Life: The KBR Keys to Life are field
related activities that have been identified as
having the highest potential to cause serious
injury. The keys are diligently managed at all
field locations where they establish a clear
set of injury mitigation
standards in an effort to trigger robust
employee engagement.

The nature of KBRs business requires


our people to meet challenges and
deadlines every day, safely and
responsibly. In 2014, KBR employees
worked more than 172,000,000 hours
at over 600 facilities around the
world with a resulting recordable
injury rate of 0.30.

The KBR Zero Harm initiative was launched in late


2014 with key components specifically designed
to engage employees with our overarching theme
that zero incidents are achievable. Central to
this are our seven fundamental HSSE Absolutes,
each of which contain elements that support our
company and HSSE program vision. These are:
Total Safety Task Instructions: The KBR
pre-task risk assessment and mitigation
conducted prior to task commencement.
Employees work together to identify task
related hazards reinforcing not only safety
training but also teamwork.

Courage to Care Conversations: The


Courage to Care Conversation process is a
behavioral and observational based safety
program that empowers employees to intervene with co-workers when unsafe acts are
observed in addition to reinforcing positive
behaviors. Employees are encouraged to
exercise the Courage to Care Conversation
process in their personal lives in an effort to
extend a safety mentality all day, every day.

While many consider this recordable injury rate


an admirable achievement, KBR views it as the
next threshold on which we must improve. The
only way to maintain this level of commitment
to continuous improvement is with a matching
commitment to the health and safety of our
people and to the environment.
At KBR, HSSE is highly integrated into our training,
facility and project planning, and a corporate
culture that values and believes in each persons
ability to achieve complete HSSE success. That
success begins with being a safe and healthy
individual who mitigates safety risks at work and
home, and also has the courage and feeling of
empowerment to intervene when he or she sees
others at risk.

MyKey Stop Work Authority: MyKey


represents each employees right to stop any
task if there is a perceived danger or risk,
regardless of that employees position or level
of authority.

Safety Energy: Safety Energy is the KBR


leading indicator program that is a proven
best practice. Safety Energy continuously

Key Office Behaviors: The KBR Key Office


Behaviors are safe office behaviors that are
actively managed in all office locations. The
Key Office Behaviors provide a high level of
engagement in an environment that is typically
more introverted in nature.

Incident Review Board: The Incident


Review Board provides a method for incidents
to be reviewed through a fair, consistent,
and equitable process. The Incident Review
Board ensures all high potential incidents are
thoroughly reviewed by business segment
leadership as well as serves as a global
lessons learned communications platform.

Implementing and highlighting these HSSE


Absolutes within our business has proven
successful based on our incident rates. But at
KBR we view incident rates as a representation
of someone a person, a family member, a friend
who suffered as a result of an unsafe act or
condition. It is for this reason that we strive to
make continual improvements to our programs.
Zero Harm is about learning from our past to
make today successful and creating a sustainable
future for our employees and operations.

Message from HSSE Vice President

Sustainability plays a vital role in the


future of our business. The demand for
businesses to contribute to the communities
where they operate is here, and we must
respond to that demand in a way that
demonstrates our commitment to create
value for our stakeholders. We have made
significant progress in our sustainability
efforts, from compliance initiatives that
ensure continuous improvement in our
safety, environmental and quality management systems to project pre-planning
efforts that incorporate programs designed
to serve the communities in which we are
engaged in. Sustainability is integrated
into all areas of our operations, and KBR
continues to be willing and capable of incorporating these sustainable development
activities for the benefit of the community,
our operations, and our clients.

EMPLOYEE HEALTH AND WELLNESS

Flu Shots

KBR people are known for their hard work,


dedication and drive to deliver innovative
solutions to every challenge from creating safe,
efficient technology that helps customers develop
their resources, to designing and constructing the
facilities and infrastructure that power our world,
to providing support for militaries and governments
around the globe. To attract such people, we
must offer rewarding careers, opportunities
for professional and personal development,
equality of opportunity, flexible compensation,
fair treatment and the expectation that they will
be treated with dignity and respect.

In 2014, 1,617 employees received free flu shots


at seven KBR offices throughout the U.S. We
also provided flu shot vouchers for use at local
pharmacies to employees who work at locations
where it is not feasible to provide on-site
vaccinations.

WELLNESS PROGRAM

The most successful and productive employees


are usually the healthiest. Understanding the
many stressors and obligations that exist in our
employees lives and the challenges involved in
maintaining wellness with so many competing
demands in todays world, KBR makes the health
of our employees a top priority. Through our many
health-focused programs, we demonstrate to our
employees that we care and want to retain them
as valued, long-term team members.
IN THE U.S.

Health Screenings

In 2014, 1,570 employees across the U.S.


participated in free on-site health screenings.
Screenings include a blood pressure, body fat
and body mass index measurement; a cholesterol
test (glucose, HDL/LDL and triglycerides); and
a waist-circumference measurement. At the
screening, participants may discuss their test
results and options for improving their health
with a health coach.

Healthy Steps

This wellness program rewards U.S. employees


financially for taking specific measures to
protect and improve their health. KBR employees
had the opportunity to participate in the Health
Screenings. If employees screening results were
within healthy ranges, they automatically earned
a premium discount for 2015. If employees
screening results fell below the healthy ranges,
they were required to either participate in health
coaching or improve their numbers on their own
to receive the premium discount. For 2014, 1,151
employees received the discount on their 2015
medical premium.
GLOBALLY

In the U.K. and Australia, flu shots and vouchers


were offered to employees. Employees in South
Africa take advantage of a cash back benefit
from their medical plan that reimburses costs
associated with purchasing healthy foods, fitness
clothing and gym memberships. In the UAE,
health checks were carried out for the first time
in 2014. Singapore employees participated in
numerous organized wellness activities including
team sports and family days while also taking
advantage of on-site health screenings. Indonesia
conducted flu shots and sponsored several
employee sports activities.

In addition to these wellness programs, KBR


offers other initiatives to help employees stay
healthy including on-site health fairs, coaching
for lifestyle and chronic conditions, on-site chair
massages and discounts for fitness facilities,
weight-loss programs and retailers that offer
healthy food options.
EMPLOYEE ASSISTANCE PROGRAM (EAP)
As an integral part of our ONE KBR and Zero Harm
culture, KBRs EAP provides confidential,
professional mental health counseling and
related services free of charge to employees
and their dependents. This helps to ensure
that KBR employees are emotionally healthy,
safe and productive and able to meet our
customers requirements.
KBRs EAP organization is staffed internally in the
U.S. by a range of licensed mental health professionals, including licensed clinical social workers,
licensed professional counselors, licensed
chemical dependency counselors and certified
employee assistance professionals.
EAP offers 24-hour crisis intervention, stress
management for critical events and individual
consultations covering a wide variety of issues
including marital troubles, substance abuse, child
rearing, elder care and mental issues.
Additionally, EAP counselors routinely consult
with supervisors and managers on issues that
include workplace crisis intervention, addressing
employee performance problems, as well as
supervisory topics involving change management,
human relations, communications, and emotional
resiliency. EAP tools and resources are available

2014 KBR SUSTAINABILITY REPORT

Economics and Finance


Economic sustainability for KBR means creating
a company that will last for generations to come.
In 2014, we strengthened our commitment to
deliver superior returns to our shareholders and
backed it with sustainable business practices
that ensure profits today and in the future. We
focused on our core strengths in consulting,
technology, engineering construction, and government services; restructured the organization to
better meet the expectations of our customers
and other stakeholders; and improved our capital
and operational efficiency.
Ensuring a sustainable company means creating
our own future rather than reacting to whatever
is happening in the marketplace. It means looking
beyond short-term gains and quick profits to creating opportunities for long-term financial value
and being valued by our customers.

but are not limited to:
developing, implementing and periodically
reviewing KBRs corporate governance
guidelines;

developing and implementing a process to


assess board and committee effectiveness;

identifying individuals qualified to become


board members, consistent with boardapproved criteria; and

determining the composition of the board


and its committees, including selection of
director nominees for the next annual meeting
of stockholders.

The HSSE&SR Committees responsibilities


include, but are not limited to:

reviewing and providing input to KBR on the


management of current and emerging health,
safety, security, environmental, and social
responsibility issues;

safety, security, environmental, and social
responsibility policies and performance,

HUMAN RIGHTS
As an extension of our COBC, KBR adopted a
Global Human Rights Policy that acknowledges
the principles contained in the United Nations
Declarations of Human Rights. While KBR believes
it is the role of government in each country to
protect the human rights of its citizens, our
actions play an important role in upholding
equality, dignity and respect for all people in
the countries where we conduct business.
Our human rights policy serves as a powerful
guide for our employees and subcontractors. For
example, KBR has a zero-tolerance policy regarding
Trafficking in Persons compliance. We enforce
these requirements by conducting pre-award
reviews, mandating that all employees and
subcontractors deployed overseas attend a
Trafficking in Persons training program, performing
monthly inspections at subcontractor temporary
labor camps, and offering an ethics hotline for
employees to report any concerns, including
potential Trafficking in Persons violations.
VOLUNTEERING
EMPLOYEE INVOLVEMENT

KBR employees routinely solve problems and find


solutions for our customers. Thats the foundation of our We Deliver commitment. Its also a
quality that extends to our employees volunteer
activities. Around the world, KBR employees
contribute many hours to the betterment of their
communities. At times, it involves small local
projects planting trees; cleaning parks; adopting schools and repairing playground equipment;

and lending assistance to the ill, the elderly and


the disadvantaged. While these projects and
causes might seem small in nature, they are ones
for which employees have a real passion. Collectively, their efforts add up to thousands of hours
of volunteer service in hundreds of communities.
Community outreach in the form of volunteering
or cash donations is further encouraged and
facilitated through KBRs corporate matching
donations and the KBR Cares volunteer program,
the companys vehicle for organizing volunteer
activities and raising employee awareness of
community needs. A few examples of employee
involvement in 2014:
Bowling for dollars

One of the highlights of the year for KBRs Houston


volunteers is the Junior Achievement Bowl-a-Thon.
Each year KBR employees volunteer as team
captains and bowlers/fundraisers competing to
raise the most money both within the company
and among other companies in the Houston area.
Its a hotly contested event, with teams vying
to outdo each other in fund raising, costumes
and team spirit. KBR bowlers raised a total of
$21,476.58 in 2014 to provide financial literacy
training and experiences to Americas future
business professionals.
Lighting up

Hamilton is a small community in northern


Mississippi with a population of 631 and one local
school for grades K-12. For the past two years
KBR has provided maintenance and small capital
services to Tronox Limiteds titanium dioxide
manufacturing operation, which has been part of

permitting, KBR employees would load a forklift,
a manlift and other equipment onto trailers and,
accompanied by a police escort, drive two miles

Delivers safely, on time and on budget!

Giving from the heart

KBRs corporate matching donations program


helps employees make contributions to the
local or national charities that are closet to their
hearts. KBR absorbs all of the administrative
costs of the program and adds a 50 percent
matching donation for employee contributions
over $50.00. Employees may donate to one or
more organizations, either through a one-time
contribution or payroll deductions. In 2014, KBR
employee contributions helped fund parks, preserve
estuaries, and provide much needed financial
support to non-profit organizations involved in
education, health and welfare, civic programs,
arts and culture. KBR employee payroll deductions
of approximately $350,000 to various organizations were supplemented with KBR corporate
dollars, for a total of $523,500 in contributions to
worthy causes.

RAISING THE BAR FOR SAFETY ACROSS QATARS
EXPRESSWAY PROGRAMME

Its the safety superhighway. As Programme


Management Consultant for Qatars extensive
Expressway Programme, KBR has 18 projects
in construction, and safety is the driving value
across all project sites. Throughout, KBRs
health, safety and environment team has guided
consultants and contractors in implementing
highly effective safety initiatives that empower
the projects many workforces across Qatar. Among
the initiatives are health, safety and environment
toolbox talks and stand downs, weekly management walk throughs, issuing of first aid pouches
for all workers and the use of safety report cards.
The focus is paying off. In 2014, numerous
Expressway Programme projects celebrated
notable safety milestones:

Lusail Expressway, achieved 10 million workhours without a LTI.

F-Ring Road, demonstrating a commitment


to an incident and injury-free workplace,
achieved four million work-hours without a LTI.

As more Expressway Programme projects move


into construction, the safety focus is expanding
to include road users driving through and around
project sites. In a Qatar first, crash cushions have
been installed along temporary diversion roads.
Traffic mounted attenuator vehicles are also
being used to guide traffic to make journeys even
safer for road users.
By achieving project safety milestones and
expanding safety awareness into the community,
KBR and its program partners are helping to
shape an improved safety culture for construction
projects across Qatar.

KBR REACHES OUT TO CANADAS ABORIGINAL


COMMUNITIES

Diversity in the workplace is one of the cornerstones that contribute to a stronger workforce.
In Canada, Aboriginal people make up a large and
growing segment of the workforce. Thats why
employees of the KBR Services Group has taken
steps to ensure that they encourage diversity by
reaching out to the local Aboriginal communities.
From hiring subcontractors and tradespeople
to work on KBR projects, to increasing Aboriginal
cultural awareness among KBR staff and establishing relationships within the communities, the
goal is to foster increased trust and openness
among KBR and the Aboriginal communities.
To this end, KBR established the Canada Aboriginal
and Local Engagement Committee designed to
increase Aboriginal awareness and inclusion
in the Canadian communities in which KBR
employees live and work.

Since most of Canada is governed by treaties


with the indigenous people, industry in Canada
has a duty to consult with Aboriginal people,
whose treaty and traditional rights may be
affected by oil and gas projects. But KBR wanted
to do more honoring our client requirements
while also being proactive and developing our
own long-term relationships with First Nations
and Metis people.
Not only does it make for a better, more diverse
workforce for KBR projects, it also furthers our
sustainable development commitments to develop
projects efficiently and responsibly, reach out to
communities through initiatives that meet their
needs and create greater economic opportunities
for the entire region.

Dukhan Highway Central, with a workforce


of more than 3,000 people, achieved 25 million
hours without a lost time incident (LTI).

As Qatars ambitious Expressway Programme creates the vital transportation linkages to support the countrys growth, KBRs highly
effective HSE initiatives are helping to instill a unified safety culture among the many workforces and create a safer future.

KBR Canadas Aboriginal and Local Engagement Committee is designed to foster greater understanding and engagement with this large and growing segment of the countrys workforce.

KBR TEAMMATES RAISE FUNDS, AIR AMBULANCE
AWARENESS AT LEATHERHEAD

CONVERTING TRASH TO ENERGY SOLID WASTE


AUTHORITY OF PALM BEACH COUNTY

When an employee in KBRs Leatherhead, U.K.,


office suffered a serious medical crisis while on
the job, his colleagues responded swiftly to help
him, contacting the emergency response service
to dispatch an air ambulance (helicopter) to the
campus, ensuring a successful outcome.

Converting municipal solid waste (MSW), or


trash, into energy is not a new process but new
and emerging technologies are making the process
cleaner and more economical than ever before.
KBR provided engineering, procurement and
construction (EPC) services for the Solid Waste
Authority of Palm Beach Countys Renewable
Energy Facility 2, the most advanced and cleanest
waste-to-energy power plant in North America.
The facility is designed to transform 3,000 trash
per day of MSW into 100 megawatts of clean
energy, providing power for an estimated 40,000
homes and businesses, while reducing the local
landfill deposit rate by up to 90 percent.

One of the biggest surprises for most KBR


employees that day was the fact that the air
ambulance service was not funded through
the U.K. National Health Service, but is
a registered charity that relies on fundraising
to survive. It costs 6 million (USD $9.7 million)
a year to fund the service, which covers the
English counties of Kent, Surrey and Sussex.
The single visit to the KBR campus cost
about 2,500 (USD $3,771).

Since the project was awarded in 2011, KBR


was embedded in the community, employing 259
local direct hire workers during peak construction
in December 2014 and contracting with 21
local subcontractors for engineering, concrete
construction, electrical work, roofing, landscaping,
plumbing, painting and other services. A total of
$136,943,953 was paid to Palm Beach County
firms, including $22,693,474 to small business
enterprises. KBR exceeded its local hire
commitment by 5% for skilled employees and
10% for unskilled employees.

To say thank you, Leatherhead employees decided


to raise money for the service. As part of dress
down Friday, all members of the project were
invited to wear the shirt of their favorite team,
whatever the sport, and pay a fee for the privilege.
The event, along with KBR fund matching, raised
more than 5,000 (USD $7,543) for the air ambulance service. The fundraising had a ripple effect;
KBR employees later ran in a local half marathon
sponsoring the air ambulance.

After a fellow Leatherhead, UK employees life was saved through the swift response of the regions air ambulance service,
KBR employees raised 5,000 (USD $7,543) to fund the program, which relies on charitable contributions.

A key element of the contract was to provide
training and development opportunities for
local workers. KBR trained 223 participants in a
wide variety of National Center for Construction
Education and Research courses, from field and
task-specific safety training to craft skills such as
pipefitting, electrical, rigging, project supervision
and crew leadership.
KBR also recruited and trained local U.S. Military
veterans, many of them out of work and living in
transitional housing. Through our award-winning
QuickTrain program, KBRs ongoing feeder operation for entry level unskilled and semi-skilled
workers, they graduated with basic construction
skills and guaranteed jobs as helpers and laborers
on the project.

The City of Palm Beachs state-of-the-art waste-to-energy


power plant designed and built by KBR will provide power for
an estimated 40,000 homes and businesses while reducing
landfill use.

KBR RECEIVES FINAL ENVIRONMENTAL


CERTIFICATION FOR FORMER CORPORATE
HEADQUARTERS PROPERTY

When KBR decided to sell the original Brown


& Root headquarters at 4100 Clinton Drive,
Houston, Texas, the company knew that extensive
remediation would be needed to make it ready
for future development. After more than 100 years
of industrial activity both with Brown & Root and
previous owners, the site contained residual
chemicals and other contaminants.
The KBR team knew that transforming the 136-acre
brownfield site for more productive use would be
no small feat. It took five years and multiple KBR
departments and teammates working together
with civic and local elected officials to complete
the remediation process. Approximately 36,000
cubic yards of soil was removed and recycled
for use in commercial/industrial projects,
enabling KBR to reduce the carbon footprint,
lessen resource consumption and lower the cost
of soil disposal.
KBR also applied for a Municipal Setting
Designation (MSD), a tool that is used to
streamline and facilitate urban redevelopment
in Houston.

An MSD creates an area within a municipality


where current and future property owners are
prohibited from using the groundwater for potable
purposes such as drinking, bathing, cooking or
irrigating crops. Since City of Houston water is
supplied by a closed system from surface water
bodies such as Lake Houston rather than shallow
groundwater, this prohibition is merely a formality.
By designating a property as being located within
an MSD, owners are not required to clean up the
groundwater to drinking water standards, thereby
shortening the remediation process and saving
significant sums of money. The Clinton Drive site
is the largest tract approved thus far for an MSD.
KBR received the final certificate of completion
from the Texas Commission on Environmental
Quality in September 2014. In the process it
turned a large, historically impacted, limited-use
site into a greenspace that is ready for new
life as a vibrant residential or commercial
development in the heart of Houston.

Through an innovative redevelopment and remediation program,


KBR transformed the 136-acre brownfield site of its original
Clinton Drive campus into a greenspace for urban development.

CAMP BASTION (AFGHANISTAN)


Located northwest of Lashkar Gah, the capital of
Afghanistans Helmand Province, Camp Bastion
is a solitary fortress in the middle of an arid,
treeless, empty desert. Between 2005 and 2014
it was the logistics hub for International Security
Assistance Force operations in Helmand during
the War in Afghanistan and Operation Herrick
and was capable of accommodating over
32,000 people.
KBR arrived at Camp Bastion in 2007 under the
CONLOG (Contractor Logistics) contract with
Britains Ministry of Defence. At peak, more than
1,500 KBR staff worked at the base.
Operating in a remote desert with extreme

AUSTRALIAN RAIL LINE
The Regional Rail Link is a landmark AU$ 4.1 billion
(USD $2.97 billion) infrastructure project in the
Australian state of Victoria. Designed to untangle
bottlenecks, improve reliability and provide new
services from the heart of Melbourne to growth
areas in the west, the project benefits both metropolitan and regional travelers, enabling more
Victorians to use sustainable public transport.
KBR, in joint venture with Arup (KAJV) was awarded
concept design for the project, which includes
45km of new rail track, 25 bridges, five new
upgraded stations and five grade separations within the operational rail corridor. The contract was
later extended to the development of reference
designs and technical advisory support for
procurement and subsequent construction phases.
The goal of all the stakeholders was to deliver a
project with a positive legacy for communities
along the tracks. Through close collaboration
between KBR, the other contractors and the
Regional Railway Authority project team, the
project has raised the bar for innovative sustainability practices on large infrastructure projects
nationwide.

Key successes include reducing constructionphase energy and carbon by 20 percent, developing
a groundbreaking environmental rating tool
for railway stations and achieving green star
certifications for five railway stations a first

Report the effect of any restatements of information provided in previous reports, and the
reasons for such restatement

We have restated our Consolidated Statement of Operations for the year ended December 31, 2013. We determined the
restatement was necessary due to the materiality of the additional estimated costs to complete seven Canadian pipe fabrication
and modular assembly contracts within our Services business segment which we identified subsequent to filing our Form 10-K
on February 27, 2014. In addition, we identified a pre-tax error which resulted in an overstatement in our revenue recognition on
a long-term construction project. We also identified an error which resulted in an understatement of our income tax provision.
The adjustment to provision for income taxes on the consolidated statements of income for the year ended December31, 2013
reflects this additional expense. In addition, we have corrected several immaterial errors which resulted in an increase in net
income. These errors resulted in misstatements in our Consolidated Statement of Operations for the year ended December 31,
2013 as follows:
In KBRs Restated Consolidated Statement of Operations from 2013:
Net Income Attributable to KBR was $75,000,000 USD.
Services Revenue was $7,214,000,000 USD.
Cost of Services was $6,797,000,000 USD.
General and Administrative was $248,000,000 USD.
Provision for Income Taxes was $129,000,000 USD.

When the NCG Committee identifies a prospective candidate, the Committee determines whether it will carry out a full evaluation of the candidate. This determination is based on the information provided to the Committee by the person recommending
the prospective candidate and the Committees knowledge of the candidate. This information may be supplemented by inquiries
to the person who made the recommendation or to others. The preliminary determination is based on the need for additional
Board members to fill vacancies or to expand the size of the Board, and the likelihood that the candidate will meet the Board
membership criteria listed above. The NCG Committee will determine, after discussion with the Chairman of the Board and
other Board members, whether a candidate should continue to be considered as a potential nominee. If a candidate warrants
additional consideration, the Committee may request an independent executive search firm to gather additional information
about the candidates background, experience and reputation, and to report its findings to the Committee. The NCG Committee
then evaluates the candidate and determines whether to interview the candidate. Such an interview would be carried out by one
or more members of the NCG Committee and others as appropriate. Once the evaluation and interview are completed, the NCG
Committee recommends to the Board which candidates should be nominated. The Board makes a determination of nominees
after review of the recommendation and the Committees report.
Candidates nominated for election or re-election to the Board should possess the following qualifications:
personal characteristics:
- highest personal and professional ethics, integrity and values;
- an inquiring and independent mind;
- practical wisdom and mature judgment;
n broad training and experience at the policy-making level in business, government, education or technology;
n expertise that is useful to KBR and complementary to the background and experience of other Board members, so that an
optimum balance of members on the Board can be achieved and maintained;

The KBR Board of Directors has four standing committees that address economic, environmental and social impacts.
Those committees are:
Audit Committee

Report the highest governance bodys role in reviewing the effectiveness of the organizations
risk management processes for economic, environmental and social topics.

KBRs Board of Directors considers risk oversight to be an integral part of its role, and discussions regarding risks faced by the
company are part of its meetings and deliberations throughout the year. As part of the implementation of KBRs new strategy,
KBRs management is improving its enterprise risk management system to provide greater executive oversight for managing risks.
Once this update is complete, management will provide the Board regular reports regarding significant strategic, operational,
financial, and hazard risks determined by management to have a potential significant impact on the company as a whole. The risk
report involves both current and emerging risks and is the culmination of a process involving input from all business groups and
executive leadership. Managements assessment of risk will include specific strategic, operational, financial and hazard risks, the
perceived trend for each of those specific risks whether increasing, decreasing or stable and the measures being taken to
monitor and mitigate those risks.
In addition to the enterprise risk management process described above, the Board also engages in risk oversight through the
project approval process, whereby projects reaching a threshold level of expected revenues require Board approval. Fixed-price
contracts have a lower threshold level than reimbursable-type contracts because of their potential price and financial risks. In
reviewing projects, the Board is presented with managements assessment of a particular projects cost exposure associated with
operations risk, liabilities and funding risks, among others. In this manner, KBRs Board is engaged in risk oversight at the outset
of the largest projects, which could have a material effect on KBRs operations.
The Board is also engaged in risk oversight through regular reports from its Audit Committee. The Audit Committee is charged
with reviewing with management the companys major financial risk exposures, as well as other areas of risk exposure if requested to do so by the Board, and the steps management has taken to monitor and mitigate those exposures. The Audit Committee
receives periodic reports from management on these areas of potential exposure, including litigation, liquidity and capital
resources, financial reporting and disclosures, regulatory and tax risks, among others. The Audit Committee also receives reports
from management regarding compliance risks and Code of Business Conduct matters.

Report how performance criteria in the remuneration policy relate to the highest governance

Our NEOs who were with KBR for the entirety of 2014 did not receive any payouts under our 2014 Short-Term Incentive Plan.
Likewise, the long-term cash performance awards payable for the three-year period ending on December 31, 2014, earned $0,
which represents 60% of our NEOs annual long-term incentive compensation opportunity. In addition, restricted stock unit and
stock option holdings, which represent 40% of our NEOs annual long-term incentive compensation, are significantly devalued
and all of our NEOs stock options granted in the last five years are currently underwater.
These results demonstrate a compensation plan designed on the principles of Pay for Performance and fully aligned with the
disappointing financial and operational results for 2014. Equally evident is the resultant challenge of ensuring retention and
forward-incentive for the existing and new members of our executive leadership team.

Due to the restatement of our 2013 financial results, our Compensation Committee and Board of Directors implemented our clawback policy and sought and recovered from our NEOs who are current executive officers and the former CEO and chief accounting
officer the portion of their 2013 Short-Term Incentive Plan payouts that should not have been paid in light of the restatement. Our
current CEO, Mr. Bradie, was not an employee in 2013, and our current chief financial officer, Mr. Ferraioli, joined KBR on October
28, 2013, and was not eligible for a 2013 Short-Term Incentive Plan payout. Thus, neither Mr. Bradie nor Mr. Ferraioli were
subject to any clawbacks.
Changes Made to 2015 Compensation
Upon the recommendation of our CEO, based on prior year performance and peer-comparative data, our Compensation Committee approved zero 2015 base salary increases, zero 2015 short-term incentive target increases, and zero 2015 long-term incentive
target increases for all NEOs (excluding the CEO).
Based on peer-comparative data for his level of compensation, on his non-involvement (pre-hire) in the 2013 financial and operational problems, and on our Boards total satisfaction with his immediate personal engagement in formulating and leading KBRs
business transformation actions, our Compensation Committee and Board approved modest increases to our CEOs short- and
long-term incentive targets for 2015 but made no increase to his base salary. The CEOs 2015 total target compensation was kept
below the median total target compensation for our E&C Peer Group.

Financial implications and other risks and opportunities for the organizations activities due to
climate change

Existing or pending climate change legislation, regulations, international treaties or accords are not expected to have a shortterm material direct effect on our business, the markets that we serve or on our results of operations or financial position.
However, climate change legislation could have a direct effect on our customers or suppliers, which could impact our business.
For example, our commodity-based markets depend on the level of activity of mineral and oil and gas companies and existing or
future laws, regulations, treaties or international agreements related to climate change, including incentives to conserve energy
or use alternative energy sources, which could impact our business if such laws, regulations, treaties or international agreements
reduce the worldwide demand for minerals, oil and natural gas. We will continue to monitor developments in this area.

Coverage of the organizations defined benefit plan obligations

The defined benefit section of the KBR (UK) Ltd Pension Plan is a defined benefit plan obligation where there is a fund set up to
meet the liabilities. The latest full triennial actuarial valuation of the Plan looked at the Plans position as at 1 April 2012 and
showed that the defined benefit section had a deficit of 337m, equivalent to a funding level of 73%. This valuation was based
on the ongoing scheme specific funding assessment as required under the scheme funding framework in the UK. The methodology, assumptions and results are set out in the scheme funding report for that valuation. An assessment of the deficit at the latest
triennial valuation date of 1 April 2015 is currently underway.
There is a recovery plan in place under which KBR (UK) Ltd is currently paying contributions of 28m per year into the Plan. Under
this recovery plan, the deficit was projected to be eliminated by 31 December 2023. This projection is based on the assumptions
from the actuarial valuation and future assumptions about the returns achieved on the Plans assets. The recovery plan has been
agreed by KBR (UK) Ltd and the Trustees of the Plan.
The defined benefit section of the Plan is closed to new entrants and existing members are no longer building up new benefits.
There are therefore no regular employee or employer contributions towards the cost of new benefits being paid into the Plan.

Changing the productivity of organizations, sectors, or the whole economy


- Providing the knowhow and project management behind the processes to convert natural gas to a liquid, such as in the
case of Gorgon, Ichthys, Skikda and Escravos, enabling export of a cleaner energy source in transportable quantities
resulting in new or better supplied markets for natural gas production.
- Transportability of stranded gas from regions with large supplies and relatively small market to regions with growing
demand and relatively little resource promotes a better global allocation of resources leading to greater efficiency for
many nations and the energy industry as a whole (Gorgon, Ichthys, Skikda, Escravos, Dyno-Nobel).
- Transfer of technology to produce ammonia and fertilizers that improve food supplies and yields for a growing population.
KBR has provided services in support of 3 number of ammonia and fertilizer facilities in 2014.

Economic development in areas of high poverty


- Offices in Luanda, Delhi, Chennai, Jakarta and Monterrey, which provide professional and clerical employment as well as
multiplier effects, where living conditions having been improving, but are not yet fully developed.
- Greater supplies of ammonia and urea translate into higher quantities of foodstuffs available for growing populations

Economic impact of improving or deteriorating social or environmental conditions


- Providing the knowhow and project management behind the processes to convert natural gas to a transportable liquid,
enabling wider use of a more environmentally-friendly fuel for heating, electricity and other energy requirements
- Natural gas powered facilities often replace existing and incremental coal-fired or oil-fired energy facilities, which contributes toward reducing SOX, NOX, particulate and other emissions.
- Higher crop yield using fertilizers derived from ammonia produced from a KBR process technology improves the overall
success of planting and availability of food and exports.

Enhancing skills and knowledge amongst a professional community or in a geographical region


- Providing professional engineering jobs and associated training in Angola, China, India, Indonesia, Mexico, Saudi Arabia,
South Africa

Jobs supported in the supply chain or distribution chain


- Thousands of jobs supported through sub-contractors and equipment vendors and OEM manufacturers throughout the
world through the construction of world-class processing plants

Stimulating, enabling, or limiting foreign direct investment


- Enabling large-scale FDI in Australia (Gorgan and Ichthys), Mozambique, Saudi Arabia (Dow), inward United States
(Dyno-Nobel) with competitive designs, schedules and pricing along with capable project management in LNG, refining,
petrochemicals and ammonia.

Economic impact of change in location of operations or activities


- Increasing presence in India provides professional and clerical job opportunities to a growing market.

legislation, notably for the populations of stone curlew, common quail and hen harrier, and for the chalk grassland habitat, one of
the largest remaining areas of calcareous grassland in north-western Europe. The SAC is also designated for juniper formations
on heaths, semi-natural dry grassland and scrubland facies and the marsh fritillary butterfly. Much of the natural environment
is also protected through its designation as a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) for its populations of rare bumblebee
species, and many rare birds, plants and invertebrates.
A habitats regulations assessment (HRA) has concluded that no residual ecological or contamination impacts are anticipated as a

Educational Assistance
It is KBRs intent that every employee realizes his or her full potential in an environment that values productivity and results. To
this end, KBR provides educational opportunities that enable employees to improve their skills and/or knowledge outside the
scope of standard on-the-job informal training.
Educational assistance whenever possible should be planned and budgeted in advance, and applicable to an employees current
or projected position. All costs incurred will be applicable to the cost center where the employee resides. Additionally, eligible
employees are approved based on managerial discretion, and on the condition that studies must be completed without jeopardizing the employees work performance. Further, employees must show evidence of successful course completion at the conclusion
of the course or course of study. In addition to country-specific eligibility requirements, specific monetary limits may be imposed.
Participation in this program does not guarantee a promotion or change in job responsibilities and earnings.
Following the reimbursement payment date of educational assistance, the employee is obligated for the course of one year to
reimburse monies paid in the event of resignation or separation for cause. Upon acceptance of reimbursement, the employee
authorizes the Company to take this deduction from any monies that may be owed to the employee. Reimbursement may also be
applicable to an employee transferring from one manager to another across budgetary lines.
Internal Training Courses
KBR is committed to the continued development of its employees and believes that the employee and the Company have a
shared responsibility for career and competency development. KBR recognizes the need for employees to acquire additional
skills, knowledge and experience to meet the short-term needs of their jobs, as well as the longer-term needs of the individual
and company.
The KBR Transferable Competency model is core to The KBR Way and the creation of a culture focused on hiring the right people,
requiring them to behave in a way that is consistent with our business values and brand, and executing processes that will allow
us to win in the marketplace. The educational material contained in KBRU is to assist KBR, managers and employees globally to
be more productive, and have more meaningful and consistent conversations about performance, putting us on the path toward
creating a more enriching experience at KBR. The competency model contains seven transferable competencies and is aligned
