Net Zero – the Mabbett sustainability commitment

27th March 2024 - Written by Alan Dow

Sustainability is at the core of Mabbett’s company principles (Persistence, Integrity, Passion and Sustainability) – for ourselves and for our technical support service for clients.  Our decarbonisation and environmental advice, training and support to multiple sectors – including industrial and public sector organisations are coupled with our own Net Zero goals. These align with our broader sustainability activities, promoting action and accountability around Environmental, Social and Corporate Governance (ESG) agendas.

We believe that embedding ESG policies and plans across business operations is good for business and good for the environment.  Directly acknowledging and implementing the goals and outcome from the United Nations Sustainability Development Goals (UN SDG), the best responsible businesses understand ESG to be “monitored, measured and managed sustainability”, integral to business success and able to enhance futureproofing of business resilience.

As a conscientious and responsible business, Mabbett keeps asking the ESG questions to ensure our Net Zero pledge is backed up with a broader consideration or reducing the negative impact and increasing the positive impact of our operations, managing societal impacts within our firm and with who and wherever we work.  This approach is equally backed up through our desire to do the right thing and our collective responsibility to provide the tools, incentives and act to be truly sustainable.  After all, our ISO 14001 environmental management system policy is to “practice what we preach”!

Mabbett does this through all parts of our business – taking action to reduce air pollution and our carbon footprint through innovative working models and sensible travel plans, contributing to the circular economy through sustainable procurement, re-use and recycling practices and controlling what we can, where we can on reducing energy and water consumption.

We publicise all these initiatives, incentivise and empower our staff to engage through the broad ESG spectrum, assisting their work, training, voluntary opportunities and community support, many of which have had a positive impact on climate change solutions.  In turn, Mabbett is advantaged with a high rate of employee satisfaction and retention by our staff, responding to an ESG pillar of working safely, fairly and ethically, delivering sustainability solutions to an ever-increasing global demand.

ESG – widening sustainability pledges.
