Our approach

Ariel view of Vilufushi, MaldivesWorking with the British Red Cross, Mott MacDonald played a major role in the reconstruction of Vilufushi, Maldives, after the 2004 tsunami destroyed over 90% of the island’s buildings and infrastructure

Mott MacDonald is one of the world’s leading employee-owned management, engineering and development consultancies. With over 14,000 staff and our multi-disciplinary outlook, we are ideally placed to develop and deliver unique and innovative solutions to challenges posed by the sustainability agenda.

The nature of our work means that improving the living standards of local communities and reducing impacts on the environment are high on the project agenda across our whole business spectrum. For example, our health and education specialists are helping reform and develop services in many low and middle-income countries by building partnerships at all levels of government and society, while our transport experts look at new models for achieving sustainable highway maintenance services.

As well as advising our customers on sustainable solutions, we also assess our own operations and continue to build on our sustainable approach to business – which supports our use of the EFQM Excellence Model and our accreditation to ISO 14001. All our offices have Local Environment Practice Plans supporting corporate and staff activities ranging from sustainable procurement, to green travel plans, to reducing our carbon footprint and consumption of water and paper, as well as protecting the local environment through other initiatives such as wildlife clubs.

Our intranet system provides the forum for numerous discussion groups related to sustainable development. Our Group Sustainability Forum encourages technical and social debates on current issues, enabling our staff to exchange valuable information worldwide, creating a global network within the company and industry as a whole.

Through our work we have developed close working relationships with many of other groups involved in leading the way with sustainable development including the World Bank, IFC, Development Banks, Multilateral Agencies, and UN Organisations.
