City Build Manchester Ltd was established in 1997 and since our establishment we have been privileged to have built some of the most prominent award winning buildings in the Northwest. We carry out work all over the UK and work across a number of sectors including Education, Health, Commercial and Industrial.
City Build have long recognised the importance of being a socially responsible business and aligning this with the needs of all our stakeholders. We recognise that we must integrate our business values and operations to meet the expectations of all our stakeholders including our customers, employees, investors, suppliers, the communities in which we operate as well as the environment.
We also understand the need for transparency in the activities that we undertake as a business in an effort to reduce the negative impacts that we create and improve and exceed on the positive impacts that we create.
We have invested considerable effort over the years to ensure our CSR policies and practices have as much impact as possible. Our success in delivering these CSR outcomes whether this be economic, social or environmental is evidenced by the continued support of our employees, clients and our supply chain.
City Build is passionate about improving people’s employability skills and work experience opportunities, particularly that of the younger generation. We believe that the recruitment and training of our existing workforce and of new entrants to the industry is of vital importance for innovation and creating a positive local economic impact and addressing the wider skills needs of the construction industry.
As a responsible business, City Build are committed to creating economic value throughout our supply chain partners and the local communities where we work. Through continued use of local supply chains, we provide employment for the local labour pool and in turn ensure sustained economic growth for the local economy. We acknowledge that, under the Public Services (Social Value) Act 2012, public bodies are required to consider how services that they procure improve the economic, social and environmental well-being of the communities in which they serve and we are fully committed to helping our public sector clients achieve these objectives.
Health and safety remain as important as ever. Eliminating risks and incidents, we also take the psychological and overall wellbeing of our employees and supply chain seriously and have made efforts to ensure that the ‘health’ in health and safety is not ignored.
We endeavour to minimise our environmental impacts through our continued use of local labour and resources and through our site waste management plans which are implemented with the support of a local waste management company.
We have undertaken steps to monitor our environmental performance against KPIs and since 2011 have also been monitoring our CO2 emissions in relation to fuel, gas and water consumption. We will continue to build on these initiatives and implement new ones to reduce our environmental impact.
We are extremely proud of our successes to date and will be implementing initiatives to improve on these year upon year. During 2016 and beyond, we will be developing and aligning our CSR strategy with our overall business plan to ensure that we continue to negate and create impact where it matters.
To be leaders in the construction of a sustainable future, contributing positive impacts to all our stakeholders and to the environment. Through these achievements, create a sustainable business model increasing our profit growth each year through innovation, efficiency, collaboration and productivity.
