Environment Agency publish five pay gap splits

The Environment Agency's gender pay gap is much lower than the overall UK gender pay gap, mainly as they have a higher proportion of men than women in both higher paid and lower paid roles.  

Their figures are open and transparent and they have put initiatives into place to continue to close this gap.  Unusually they have cut their pay gap data 5 ways.  As well as the gender pay gap they have also reported disability, race, religion and belief and sexual orientation pay gaps too.
