In order to achieve this, we need to align our business objectives with the needs and expectations of our people, our customers, our supply chain partners and our wider stakeholders, and doing business responsibly has never been more important.
As a part of the Morgan Sindall Group, we already work towards five Total Commitments, each one focuses on a key area of how we run our business and underpins how we think, act and operate.
Building on these total commitments, we’ve developed our own Responsible Business Plan to help us define how we put these commitments into practice both nationally and regionally, and how we will continue to make improvements.
The plan will support us in working towards our vision and help reinforce our position as a leader in the industry.
To make this real, we have established a set of Construction-specific commitments:
We know that the construction and regeneration sectors have a huge role to play in creating a sustainable environment, and we are taking seriously our responsibility for helping reduce carbon emissions for the benefit of our local communities – both now and into the future.
Which is why we place environmental awareness at the centre of our projects, and the decision-making processes surrounding the way we build.
By working collaboratively with our customers and supply chain partners, our teams have made significant strides in recent years to develop and deliver our projects in a sustainable way, from reduced travel or greener modes of transport for material deliveries, eco-friendly fuel options and a focus on the best possible sustainable materials for the job in hand.
Morgan Sindall Group plc has been recognised as leading on environmental action having been awarded a Grade A in our sector by CDP, formerly the Carbon Disclosure Project in 2020. CDP is an independent and voluntary carbon reporting scheme which assesses how companies cut emissions, mitigate climate risks and develop low-carbon alternatives.
Our parent company, Morgan Sindall Group plc is the only major UK-based contractor to be awarded the grading in 2020, acknowledging its continued efforts to meet its environmental targets and make its business more sustainable. Of 5,800 companies worldwide who took part, only 270 made the A-list.
