Making a difference to the marketplace in an ethical way offers an important opportunity to practise social responsibility. We actively gather feedback about our service to track our performance. We are doing well on this front, and over the past three years we have seen a 12 percent increase in the number of clients who say they would recommend us to others.
We participate in initiatives that move our industry forward. In Europe we became a member of the US Green Building Council, a non-profit organisation and developer of the internationally recognised green building LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certification system. Being part of this community enables us to connect businesses with people, share best practice and become involved in key decision-making processes that develop the green building industry.
We also demonstrate our commitment to our marketplace by going a step further for our clients. Beyond our paid work on Glasgow's major regeneration project, Clyde Gateway, we provided work placements to clients of the learning disability charity ENABLE Scotland.
