Sustainability is a word that is used far too easily these days. Whether that is in relation to the environment, economics or socially, genuinely sustainable best practice is hard to find.
Stuart is passionate about sustainability, believing that it is critical to remember that in business, you have a responsibility to give something back to the communities from which you take, giving due respect to the world in which you live and the people with whom you interact. You won’t find us talking about our green credentials and waving environmental awards in your face. It is all too easy to make those claims without genuine foundation to sustainability. We believe our sustainability is better evidenced through our actions.
Climate change is increasingly making its presence felt in all areas of life and business. There is a common responsibility for us to take care of the environment in order to limit the harm done by our lifestyles for future generations. At Stuart McBain we are committed to reducing the impact on the environment through our daily working activities. This is demonstrated in our consideration of our waste, use of water and energy, through to the materials we use day to day and our use of transport. We look to recycle and dispose of waste responsibly, to use control programs for the use of water, heat and light and always look to use responsibly manufactured materials that are recyclable, wherever possible.
We have developed a specialism in working with clients in the sustainable/renewable energy sector, believing passionately that this is a critical part of the future if we are to pass on our planet in a fit condition for future generations.
Stuart McBain Ltd operates a volunteer programme, where staff are invited to volunteer regular working days with their chosen charity. This means our staff can make a difference with practical hands-on help, without using their own holiday allowance. We actively support the regeneration of our surrounding area and document and record all financial and in-kind contributions to celebrate them as a team and with our clients.
Our holistic approach to sustainability means we can genuinely claim to be sustainable environmentally, financially and socially and we share our best practice with our clients, encouraging them to develop a sustainable approach to running their businesses.
