Yorkshire offsite construction specialist awarded Europe’s first ESG certification
An East Yorkshire based offsite construction specialist has been awarded Europe’s first environmental, social and governance (ESG) certification.
Premier Modular, offers a range of design, offsite manufacturing, fitting out and construction services to contractors and clients, delivering sustainable buildings in the education, commercial, industrial, construction welfare, healthcare, and residential sectors.
The firm has a zero waste to landfill policy in the manufacture of its buildings. Its modular buildings are fully re-useable, reconfigurable, relocatable, and the steel-framed structures are infinitely recyclable, meeting decarbonisation goals.
David Harris, managing director of Premier Modular, said: “Our aim is to radically improve the sustainability of the built environment with our approach to construction, and to generate social value across all our building projects and operations.
“We are therefore delighted to be the very first company in Europe to receive the new certification developed by SGS. This is the next step in our ESG journey, and it demonstrates our serious commitment to corporate social responsibility and sustainability.
“This independent endorsement gives all our stakeholders – staff, customers, supply chain, and investors – complete assurance that we are evaluating our ESG performance in line with the latest best practice, and that our ESG data and analysis are both accurate and transparent.”
Jonathan Hall, global dead for certification services at SGS, commented: “The ESG standard developed by SGS focuses on the most important environmental, social and governance risks to a company.
“This enables Premier to better assess, monitor and evaluate ESG at different stages, allowing it to further reduce energy consumption across its operations, optimise material efficiencies in manufacturing, manage risk more effectively, demonstrate strong leadership in ESG, and enhance employee engagement.”
“The Premier team has worked really hard to attain this European first and we would like to congratulate them on this significant achievement.”
