The Triple Bottom Line - people, planet, profit

We build a better future by implementing continual improvement through design, planning, construction and operations practices. We work hard to build spaces with minimal environmental footprint that remain healthy throughout their life cycle. By being first in class we understand our customers’ needs and lead them through their projects with the assurance they deserve.

Progressing Responsibly – mac-group’s approach to the triple bottom line.

Forbes is calling 2020 the year of sustainable business. mac-group is keeping in line by cementing the three pillars of sustainability – social (people), environmental (planet) and economic (profit) – into our business model. We have a simple and clear goal in mind – to leave the environment in a more positive position than how we found it. We want to ensure present day projects are fulfilled in a way which does not stop future generations from meeting theirs. We also understand that the planet is not just ours to pass onto our future generations but was borrowed from the generations before us.

Social – People

In the words of Paul McKenna himself “I surround myself with people that are better than me”. People are at the forefront of what we do, and why we do it. People have always been at the heart of the business and this is reflected in the way we work. mac-group are committed to make a positive impact in every community we work in. We have a robust community and neighbourhood liaison programme and are partners of the Considerate Constructors Scheme. We believe that planning ahead will result in local communities not being disrupted and we welcome early and regular engagement with any receptors we feel might be impacted by our works.

Environmental – Planet

mac-groups environmental management system is certified to ISO 14001:2015 and is updated regularly to reflect changes to UK, Irish and European legislation. Compliance is seen as standard and the bar is constantly being lifted to ensure all projects are working towards world class in the area of environmental protection. Comprehensive, risk based environmental and waste management plans are produced for each project ensuring any risks are highlighted and mitigated against and opportunities to improve are explored. An internal auditing programme improves efficiency in operations and allows normalisation across all avenues of the business.

Economic – Profit

mac-group promotes the use of environmental resources in a responsible way that aims to provide long-term benefits while establishing profitability. Sustainable procurement is an area of huge growth for our business and will become embedded in how we operate. We encourage our supply chain partners to grow with us by offering support, training and guidance where needed. We aim to source local subcontractors and suppliers where possible and is prioritised for all projects. mac-group understand that sustainable development can be profitable and is how construction will be built for the future.
