Morgan Sindall Group has been recognised for leadership in corporate transparency and performance on climate change by global environmental non-profit CDP, securing a place on its annual ‘A List’ for a third year.
CDP’s annual environmental disclosure and scoring process is widely recognised as the gold standard of corporate environmental transparency. Based on data reported through CDP’s 2022 Climate Change questionnaire, we are one of a small number of companies that achieved an ‘A’ - out of nearly 15,000 companies scored.
A detailed and independent methodology is used by CDP to assess these companies, allocating a score of A to D- based on the comprehensiveness of disclosure, awareness and management of environmental risks and demonstration of best practices associated with environmental leadership, such as setting ambitious and meaningful targets. Those that don’t disclose or provided insufficient information are scored an F.
Commenting on today’s announcement, chief executive of Morgan Sindall Group, John Morgan said: “We are incredibly proud to retain our CDP score of ‘A’ for leadership on climate change for the third year in a row. The construction industry has a major part to play in achieving global sustainability goals. The scale of the problem is substantial, as are the challenges, however, we are working towards building a more sustainable future”.
Graham Edgell, group director of procurement and sustainability for Morgan Sindall Group added: “The recognition of being awarded an ‘A’ will inspire not only our businesses but can be the catalyst for the entire construction sector. We recognise the need to share, collaborate, and work in synergy with all stakeholders to intensify, accelerate and continue to reduce emissions for the benefit of everyone.”
