Our Total Commitments
As part of a major UK construction and regeneration company, Morgan Sindall is clear in the leadership role that we must fulfil in driving forward our industry’s sustainability performance.
Through our leading approach of a Total Commitment to Sustainability, we continue to deliver against and positively influence the UK’s sustainability agenda. Our five Total Commitments underpin the way we treat our internal and external stakeholders and the wider physical environment, and represent our integrated approach to being a responsible business.
Protecting everyone involved in our business activities
Keeping people safe and reducing the number of incidents on sites, in offices, on journeys to and from work, and in the wider environment is of paramount importance. We also have a wider responsibility to ensure the health and safety of subcontractors, suppliers and the general public who have any contact with our projects.
Training, developing and retaining a talented workforce
It is vital that we employ the right people with the right skills and offer a variety of training and career development opportunities. Ensuring that our employees have the correct skills and abilities to meet future market demands and emerging technologies is an essential investment in the Group’s future.
Improving the Environment
Minimising impact, conserving resources
By its very nature, construction has an impact on the environment through the use of raw materials, the construction process and then the lifespan of the building. Reducing the environmental impact of our operations has commercial as well as environmental benefits.
Working Together with our Supply Chain
Improving performance, through collaboration and education
Over 80% of our total spend is through our supply chain, meaning that how we procure and what we procure can have a significant impact on our sustainability performance. We will continue to engage and educate our suppliers on responsible business practices, while ensuring the quality, cost competitiveness and responsible sourcing of goods and services.
Investing in communities, for the long-term
We strive to deliver long-term improvements and minimise construction impacts on all our projects. We will increase the local economic value of our work, ensuring that the communities in which we work benefit both economically and socially. We will continue our exemplar record as a considerate contractor, working with communities to minimise disruption and risks.
