Creating Safe Work Environments For a Sustainable Future.

As we all become more aware of the impact we are making to the environment, we are working continually to embed sustainability into the culture of our business.


At MGF, we understand the impact our business has on the environment, whether it be the consumption of natural resources in the manufacturing of products or the emissions of greenhouse gases from our industrial and transport activities. We are committed to reducing this impact and continuing our journey to be more sustainable.

To embed sustainability across the business, we are focusing on key components. This includes the education of all employees on sustainability topics, setting ourselves targets which are measured and monitored, as well as publishing our Roadmap to Net Zero Carbon. We also believe that it is important to transparent by communicating our progress to our employees and stakeholders.

We strive to be a responsible customer and supplier. We understand that we need to be committed to sustainability so that improvements can be made to our society and the environment for future generations.

Our Road Map to Net Zero strengthens our relationship with our customers, enhances our responsible approach to business and contributes to combatting the global challenge we are all faced with by climate change.

A Message From Our Managing Director:

Simon Littlewood

“Sustainability is at the forefront of all that we do and is vital to our existence and core values. We have set challenging but achievable sustainability targets, both internally and with our supply chain partners. We have a clear plan in place to monitor and achieve these which will benefit MGF, our supply chain family, our customers, and the communities in which we operate.

As a responsible business, that works to provide shoring, structural, lifting and safety solutions, we realised that we must evolve to operate with a focus towards sustainability and the environment and put them on an equal footing to our health and safety standards. To do so, we need to have a clear plan to proactively reduce our emissions.

MGF will set up and play our part by monitoring government and customer expectations, moving our business forward in a sustainable way, promoting best practices, and providing excellent training to ensure that we are participating in a better future for all.

I believe that, whilst our primary objectives are to meet the requirements of our customers and to remain financially secure, we must ensure that our operational activities are undertaken in a manner that enhances our people, the environment, and the communities in which we operate. Being a sustainable business is a key part of our everyday life and is a main pillar within our Mission and Values.

We have now begun our journey, with some key achievements over the last 12 months including, cascading our Road Map to Net Zero Carbon, employing an Environmental & Sustainability Advisor, and gaining accreditation in ISO 50001 Energy Management.

Managing Director, Simon Littlewood.
