Our commitment

ChildrenMott MacDonald has launched a new charitable initiative to help realise urgently needed projects. To start, we are supporting the reconstruction of a secondary school in Titkata, Bangladesh, which will double as a cyclone shelter for 300 people

Mott MacDonald is committed to the global sustainability agenda. Working across all sectors covered by sustainability – buildings, water and environment, energy, education and health, transport and industry – we aim to influence development programmes, promote sustainable thinking and help improve the well-being of communities.


We aim to follow the definition of sustainability as laid down in the Brundtland report:
Group Chairman, Keith Howells"Our approach is based on delivering value for our clients through applying principles of sustainable business in our projects. We aim to create shared value for all.” Keith Howells, Mott MacDonald Chairman and Group Board Director responsible for sustainability.
“Meeting the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.”

We also want to achieve a beneficial impact on people's lives through the projects we help deliver. As a result, we also seek to ensure that our solutions are implemented and managed in a manner that will not adversely impact on the natural environment.

We place great emphasis on this in our corporate values, which form the basis of how we run our worldwide operation, and bring together our global family. Moreover, we believe that organisations’ committed to sustainable development should be active in promoting the following five key themes:

  • intergenerational equity
  • protection, preservation and improvement of the environment
  • continued economic growth
  • societal progress
  • global inclusiveness
We're commited to working in partnership with our customers, communities and supply chains to incorporate sustainable design, implementation and operation solutions into their projects and day-to-day operations - whether it's providing access to cutting-edge renewable energy technologies or delivering training programmes for healthcare managers. Supporting our approach to corporate respsonsibility, our designs, advice, skills and expertise incorporate sustainable thinking from the outset and we seek solutions that are creative, practical, efficient and have a reduced impact on the environment.

Our accountability

A sustainable business is dependent on committed employees, and at Mott MacDonald this starts from the top with our Board directors, and travels down to project managers and all our operational staff. “As responsible corporate citizens, employers, and consultants, we are committed to delivering sustainability in all that we do. We have an important role to play in contributing to the sustainable development of the communities where we work, while considering the global economy and the environment. Our approach is based on delivering value for our clients through applying principles of sustainable business in our projects. We aim to create shared value for all.” Keith Howells, Mott MacDonald Chairman and Group Board Director responsible for sustainability.

Seeing that our sustainability policy is fully implemented is the responsibility of Group Sustainability Champion, Davide Stronati. Davide will also be responsible for further integrating the key aspects of sustainable development into our projects, our operational practices and our culture.
