Offsite specialist in landmark ESG certification

OFFSITE construction specialist Premier Modular has announced the business has been awarded Europe’s first ESG certification.

Following an audit by SGS, Premier has been certified for its management and performance in Environmental, Social and Governance.

David Harris, MD of Premier Modular, said, “Our aim is to radically improve the sustainability of the built environment with our approach to construction, and to generate social value across all our building projects and operations. We are therefore delighted to be the very first company in Europe to receive the new certification developed by SGS.

“This is the next step in our ESG journey, and it demonstrates our serious commitment to corporate social responsibility and sustainability.”

Premier is committed to reducing its carbon footprint and revealed that a number of initiatives are underway. One project is looking at alternative materials for modular building manufacture, which have lower embodied carbon.
