We are the people behind the most sustainable building on the 2012 Olympic Park, and some of the world's only BREEAM Outstanding and LEED Platinum projects. But for us sustainability is not just about our effect on the world we live and work in.
The wellbeing of the communities where we work - and the development of our employees who are the future of our business - are both equally as important.
That is why - worldwide - we always consider sustainability from three angles - People, Planet and Prosperity.
Our suite of Sustainability Policies can be found here.

"ISG's commitment to engaging with the community was an important consideration when we were selecting a contractor. During the project I was impressed with the range of activities and the number of staff and trade contractors involved in their community initiatives. This was the added value
we were looking for."
Ken Clunie, Director Building Projects, Man Group plc 2007 - 2011
“The wonderful thing about today was that it was an opportunity for us to get involved in something very local. It was one of the fundamental reasons why we appointed ISG for the contract works – they offered something unique in which we could contribute to the local community. It was a double tick in the box as far as we were concerned. I’ve worked with many contractors over the years and none of them have offered us such a fantastic proposition. And then to invite us to be a part of that was a no-brainer as far as we were concerned.”
Simon Francis, WR Manager Western & Southern Europe, Nokia
“When we were interviewing contractors, one of ISG’s key selling points was a commitment to CSR – a day where we could go out and assist with the local community and something that was relevant to Nokia - young people, community and connecting people. It was something that no one else offered.”
Matt Jackson, Gensler
"As Associate Members of the Considerate Constructors Scheme, ISG's strong commitment to community engagement is evident throughout their projects in London and they are to be congratulated on their many different initiatives. The Scheme’s Monitors have identified a number of exceptional activities and initiatives through their site visits to ISG projects. In recognition of their efforts, ISG were awarded the prestigious Most Considerate Site Runner-up Award in 2010 and 2011 for two of their central London projects."
Edward Hardy, Considerate Constructors Scheme Chief Executive
“To have companies like ISG and their partners care so much about what we’re doing in here and give up their time to make this building look better is absolutely amazing. We are really excited about developing the relationship over time.”
Jackie Rosenberg, Deputy Chief Executive, Paddington
“ISG has been exceptional at often selecting apprentices who do require that extra time (and it can be hours or days taken up to develop them and challenge their behaviour). They really ensure the young people develop skills and experience that helps them successfully exit ISG into other sustainable employment.”
Sarah Webster, Corporate Relations and Employment Manager, City Gateway
