Corporate responsibility

Joined-up thinkingWith our size and global reach, Mott MacDonald’s presence and activities can have significant local impact. We want to make that impact positive

Mott MacDonald's strong ethos of caring goes hand-in-hand with our employee ownership and long-term strategic focus. We seek to make a positive difference through the projects we deliver and the way we behave.

We believe working to achieve the greatest benefit for clients, staff, society and the environment contributes to our own success. Since 2007 we have been reporting annually on our performance, helping us evaluate strengths and identify areas for improvement.

Mott MacDonald's latest Corporate Responsibility Report sets out how we seek to care for our customers, our staff, the communities among which we work and our local and global environments in order to sustain a robust and healthy business.

Highlights from 2010/11:

  • Our customers gave us an overall feedback score of 84%. This was up 1% on the previous year and 7% ahead of our best competitor – but the gap is closing.
  • We achieved a 10% reduction in lost time accidents while reporting of potentially unsafe situations rose by 30%, indicating continuing success in embedding a strong safety culture across the Group.
  • Mott MacDonald was voted first for acting to protect the environment in the Sunday Times’ Best Companies survey and we have now committed to work with project partners to halve the volume of construction waste disposed of in landfill sites.
  • The UK engineering apprenticeship programme we initiated in 2010 is growing in London, with new apprenticeships launched in two other cities.

The report also shows where action is needed: For example, carbon emissions per employee rose in 2010 – although this partly relates to improvements in our reporting and methodology which suggest that previous years may have been under-reported.

Collectively we need to refocus on the sustainability of our operations if we’re to meet our target of reducing per capita carbon emissions by 5% year on year.
