Setting our sights on Net Zero by 2035

We’re excited to reveal our official Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) strategy, outlining our progress and ongoing efforts to protect the planet, care for our people and communities, and be a responsible business.

Our strategy is aligned to 7 of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), carefully selected for the opportunities they present in allowing us to make the most difference and provide a blueprint for our continued sustainable development.

In an effort to reduce our impact on the environment, we’ve set a target of being at Net Zero by 2035, supporting the UK Government’s 2050 deadline. To support, we’ve laid out a roadmap of our journey to Net Zero, including work we’ve already done, such as upgrading to a Euro 6 compliant truck fleet, and culminating with investment in carbon offsetting projects. A significant part of our commitment to the environment is a targeted 20% reduction in landfill waste, aiming for a 96% recycling rate across all of our sites. In addition to this, we’re taking steps to be a ‘paper-lite’ business, decreasing unnecessary paper usage and adopting a digitalised workplace.

An integral part of our ESG strategy is the support offered to local communities and our own employees. As well as providing an inclusive place to work and maintaining dynamic work approaches, we are also launching employee volunteering guidelines to encourage our employees to reach out into the community. Another big part of this social value plan is our STEM education programme, something which is already helping to inspire the next generation of engineers. This involves our STEM ambassadors engaging with local schools and delivering a 16-week after school course, delving into some of the basics of civil engineering in a fun and entertaining format. 

We are also looking to further strengthen and demonstrate our robust and market leading approach to excellent business governance, through regular review of our internal operating procedures and decision-making processes – ensuring we are doing the right thing, always. A focus area for this is compliance with relevant standards, best practice and policies regarding modern slavery, business ethics, health and safety procedures and quality control. We’ve worked hard to maintain the relevant ISO standards, becoming certified to ISO 37001 in 2018 and having recently passed the 2023 integrated audit of its ISO 9001, 14001 and 45001 standards. 

David Adams, CEO from Mabey Hire, spoke on our responsible business plan, saying: “We’re proud to now be able to share our ESG strategy with our colleagues, customers and the wider construction industry, outlining our progress and the ongoing efforts to protect the planet, care for our people and community and be a responsible business. 

“At Mabey Hire we’re incredibly committed to improving our processes in-line with modern standards, especially when it comes to ESG principles. ESG has become a vital framework for us all, guiding our decision-making processes and ensuring we remain mindful of the impact we have on the world around us.”
