Galliford Try, the parent group of Morrison Construction, has again been recognised as a leading member of the FTSE4Good Index, firmly securing a position in the top third of the benchmark.
FTSE4Good is an investor index designed to measure the performance of companies demonstrating strong Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) practices. The index assesses more than 7,200 companies against 300 individual indicators that are applied to each company’s unique ESG risk exposures in 15 core areas.
Galliford Try has been included in the index for the sixth consecutive year, scoring 3.3 out of 5 - well above the construction sector average of 1.5. The Group increased its score from 3.2 in 2019 and achieved the top rating for corporate governance and anti-corruption as well as scoring highly on environmental supply chain and community matters.
Commenting on the achievement, Bill Hocking, Chief Executive of Galliford Try said: “We recognise that being sustainable makes us more efficient, helps us to win work, engages our employees, benefits the communities and environment we work in, and is the right thing to do.
This is why we are committed to operating sustainably, balancing our financial performance with our obligations to all our stakeholders to create long-term value and I am delighted that the renewal of our position on the FTSE4Good Index is excellent recognition of this.”
