Sustainability

As a major UK construction 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 People

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.

Developing People

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.

Enhancing Communities

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.

Anti-Bribery Certification

Morgan Sindall is committed to conducting business with the highest levels of integrity, honesty and responsibility, demonstrated by our approach to sustainability, our activity in the communities where we work, and our business practices both internally and externally. Through delivering in these areas we aim to achieve our company vision to be the best and most sustainable business in the industry.

Morgan Sindall has attained ISO 37001 Anti-Bribery Management System certification from the British Standards Institution. This indicates that we take necessary steps to ensure that we conduct our business in a spirit of integrity and that no act of bribery by any person either employed by, or acting as an agent of, Morgan Sindall, will be tolerated.

To reflect this, the Executive Team of Morgan Sindall has:
1. Adopted an anti-bribery policy.

2. Implemented an Anti-Bribery Management System (ABMS) to give effect to this policy.

3. Sought and received management support across the business for both the policy and the ABMS.

Modern Slavery

Morgan Sindall Group plc is committed to preventing all forms of modern slavery throughout its operations and its supply chain.

The Modern Slavery Policy applies to all of its divisions, subsidiaries, associate companies and its interests in joint venture consortia and companies and all Group employees, and works in conjunction with related Group and divisional HR Policies and Practices.

We are working with our suppliers, subcontractors and business partners in developing similar policies and practices, and have collaborated with the Supply Chain Sustainability School to offer advice and support where required.

Whistleblowing

Morgan Sindall Group is passionate about ensuring integrity at every level in all our business dealings. We believe integrity is about doing the right thing for our customers, our people and our suppliers, which ultimately means doing the right thing for our business.

Critical to delivering on our commitment to integrity, is finding out if our standards are not met. We have a confidential helpline run by a company called Expolink. This is an independent, confidential service that any employee can ring to help focus attention on compliance with company policy and ethical requirements.
