NG Bailey makes green reporting pledge

NG Bailey today committed to report in accordance with the Global Reporting Initiative, which means the company will now publically disclose its economic, environmental and social performance on an annual basis.

Many organisations worldwide are now guided by the Initiatives’ G3 sustainability reporting principles, but its uptake within the UK is still relatively low.

NG Bailey’s commitment, as detailed in its third annual sustainability report, is based on a pledge which focuses on six key areas of impact.

These are:
  • delivering sustainable building solutions for its clients,
  • its approach to working with suppliers,
  • creating opportunity for its people,
  • providing a safe working environment,
  • supporting communities,
  • lowering its carbon footprint.  

Key successes highlighted by the company include the opening of its new Scottish HQ, which achieved a Breeam Excellent and EPC Grade A rating, a reduction in its carbon footprint, including the installation of energy efficient technologies across its 25-strong office estate and a reduction in its transport emissions.

For the fourth consecutive year, the company has also reported a decrease in reportable on-site accidents.

NG Bailey chief executive Mark Andrews said: “Sustainability makes good business sense. Low energy buildings cost less to run over their lifetime, are worth more as an asset and offer occupants a better environment in which to work.

”The economic downturn should not get in the way of investment in this area. Without it we will be nowhere near the Government’s ambitious carbon reduction targets.”
