Mulalley is keen to meet the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.

Resource Efficiency

Resource efficiency is essential for Mulalley becoming a sustainable business. There is only a finite quantity of natural resources on our planet and over exploiting these is leading to environmental degradation. Therefore, we must be resourceful with the materials we have adopting circular processes and wasting as little as possible. Energy consumption also needs to be optimised.

At Mulalley we are:
  • Diverting over 95% of waste away from landfill with the majority being recycled and some used for refuse derived fuel (RDF)
  • Forming partnerships with suppliers so waste material can be sent back to manufacturers for re-use ensuring circulation of resources and a reduction in natural resource extraction.
  • Through our multiple award-winning initiative Mulalley Marketplace we divert surplus material on site to local community partners including charities and construction colleges.
  • Membership of Circular Economy Platforms like A Good Thing which help us connect with local charities ensuring material is upcycled and sent to a good cause.
  • Good Material control is promoted and upheld at construction sites reducing waste through exposure.
  • Energy efficiency is driven through energy audits, awareness campaigns and initiatives to drive down energy usage in accordance with the Energy Saving Opportunity Scheme (ESOS).
Environmental Performance

At Mulalley, improving environmental performance is a holistic review considering all aspects of activity and striving for ways to improve. Understanding this is essential not just to reduce environmental impact but to become a regenerative force having a net positive impact.

This is why at Mulalley environmental performance is measured, monitored, and continually improved:

  • We are certified in both ISO 14001 and IS0 50001 and have been for a number of years which demonstrates a mature and well-functioning environmental and energy management systems. These are regularly externally audited by the British Standards Institute.
  • Our sites are audited against outlined planned management ensuring planned mitigation measures are in place, and opportunities for improvement are exploited so overall environmental performance including energy efficiency is enhanced.
  • Environmental Newsletters are written and distributed to sites quarterly, communicating topical environmental content both on a global, industry and company level ensuring these issues are well communicated and understood. These are distributed to sites and extended to suppliers promoting a culture of environmental awareness.
  • We are active members of the Supply Chain Sustainability School and Edie giving us access to a wealth of knowledge keeping us abreast of legislation and best practice, this information is disseminated throughout the workforce.
Carbon Management

At Mulalley we understand how vital it is that action is taken now to reduce the carbon emissions associated with our business. Our carbon footprint is contributing to climate change which is having a devastating impact on the Earth’s life supporting systems including rising temperatures, extreme weather events, and sea level rise. Reducing these emissions is crucial to mitigate these consequences, for this reason Mulalley have:

  • Since 2012 have been assessing our carbon footprint and have achieved some great savings. Last year’s assessment report highlighted that we have reduced your carbon emissions (market-based) by 45.4% since the baseline year of 2016. This has been verified by Carbon Footprint Ltd .
  • We have been carbon neutral for the last 8 years – offsetting residual emissions investing in projects around the world which align with our SDGs.
  • We have committed to achieving Net Zero for our operational emissions by 2050. We have also committed to achieving a 50% reduction in emissions by 2026 compared to our baseline year of 2016. For more information see our Carbon Reduction Plan .
Natural Environment

The built environment is a major driver of biodiversity loss in the UK. We understand our activities can come at a steep cost to our planet’s biodiversity. Addressing the impacts we have is essential if we are to leave the natural environment in a better place allowing nature to recover.

  • Building biodiversity is a new initiative launched which champions good practice in enhancing the natural environment around the site compounds or estates we are working in. This helps improve urban green spaces contributing to a net positive impact on nature, creating urban habitats for local wildlife and communities.
  • We are committing to 400 of hours of employee time a year spent contributing to nature enhancement in and around the sites we work in.
  • Through our offsetting programmes, we contribute to projects across the world that conserve and create habitats for wildlife including in India and Kenya.

In conclusion, by embracing sustainable practices and prioritising our planet's well-being, we can build a future where progress and environmental responsibility go hand in hand. It is time to rewrite the narrative of construction, transforming it from an industry that leaves a heavy bootprint to one that leaves a lasting legacy of sustainability.

There is always room for innovation, and we are constantly looking out for ways to better our approach becoming a more sustainable company. Look out for new and improved initiatives in the future.
