Environmental & Sustainability

“MCS goal is to re-invest back into our communities, championing the environment and proactively making a difference.”

Sustainability is of utmost importance to MCS, and a key part of our Strategic Plan is to become a truly net-zero business, offsetting carbon and working to decrease our environmental impact overall. As part of our Strategic Plan, we have taken a holistic view of our responsibilities as a business and a major part of this was becoming an ISO 14001 accredited organisation in 2022.

To match our environmental goal, we have set ourselves the following actions:

• Plant the MCS Forest through our partnership with local charity Restorify (4,000 trees - one tree for every permanent placement we make in the next 3 years) – 700 planted to date.

• Achieve ISO Environmental accreditation.

• Map out an annual calendar of sustainability initiatives involving the entire team.

• Signed the Climate Action Pledge, pledging to reduce our carbon footprint by 50% by 2030.

Our Partner Charity

Action for Children protects and supports children and young people, providing practical and emotional care and support. They ensure their voices are heard, and campaign to improve their lives.

MCS is very proud to be affiliated with Action for Children – Byte Night, each year we bring together businesses across NI to sleep out to raise money to support the needs of disadvantaged children in Northern Ireland. By intervening early, we can stop neglect and abuse, make life better for children with disabilities and put children right up to their twenties on a more positive path.

Last year as part of fundraising our Managing Director slept out on the side of FairHead cliff in Ballycastle and individually raised over £10,000.
