Morgan Sindall tops green ranking

10 Oct 13 Morgan Sindall has emerged as the highest scoring construction company in a ranking of corporate carbon footprints.

Morgan Sindall scored 91 B in the CDP FTSE 350 Climate Change Report 2013.

Previously known as the Carbon Disclosure Project, the annual CDP reports are a system for companies to report their environmental impacts, for benchmarking purposes.

The FTSE 250 average score is 60 C, while the FTSE 100 average is 81 B.

Balfour Beatty was the second ranking contractor, with a score of 87 B, narrowly ahead of Carillion on 86 B and Interserve on 86 C.

Builders’ merchant group Travis Perkins scored 88 B.

Carillion, whose score was up nine point son last year and more than 30 points since it first participated in the report in 2010, pleased with its progress. Carillion chief sustainability officer David Picton said: “We are extremely encouraged by our further improved score in this year’s report, which underlines the extent to which effective carbon management has been embraced across all levels of our complex and dynamic business. 

“We have set ourselves challenging carbon reduction aims and have always endeavoured to be transparent about our performance against them.  Given that this issue affects us all, the CDP report offers a valuable opportunity to demonstrate that openness, to lead others and to benchmark our performance against our peers to remain committed to relentless improvement actions.”
