The benefit of a long term partnership is the ability to make a real difference to local communities. We work with local people to understand and address their needs and aspirations, creating successful and sustainable communities 

 

We measure the impact carefully and are guided by our Morgan Sindall Group responsible business strategy, based on the five Total Commitments to our stakeholders. 

We do this through:

  • Collaboration with public, private and third sector stakeholders
  • Creating resilience in our own operation, the communities where we work, and throughout our supply chain
  • Being accountable for what we deliver
  • Being inclusive with all stakeholders

The Morgan Sindall Group Total Commitments are designed to ensure we are a responsible business and that our projects have a positive social, environmental and economic impact in the local area. 

They align to and support the UN Sustainable Development Goals, with a particular focus on Goal 8 which is focused on promoting ‘sustained, inclusive and sustainable economic growth, full and productive employment and decent work for all’.

Managing a sustainable supply chain

We improve our performance levels, through collaboration and education and understand that working with our supply chain is key to achieving a sustainable build.

We are proud that we procure 100% sustainable timber and use local suppliers to reduce our carbon footprint. Our sustainability policies are passed down to our contractors including using our local employment policy to create sustainable employment.

Suppliers that perform well against our targets gain preferred status. Working with local councils and job centres, we encourage the creation of apprenticeships to help develop the next generation of skilled construction workers.

Enhancing communities

We invest in communities by focusing on creating long-term improvements to the areas we work in, with a key focus on delivering new homes.

A number of our developments have taken place on under-utilised land (former car parks, vacant brownfield sites).

We continue to enhance engagement with schools and colleges, creating job and apprenticeship opportunities and taking part in local charity fundraising events.
