Innovation | Quality | Engagement
Sustainability isn’t a fad It’s not a ‘nice-to-have’. And we don’t do it to look good. Sustainability is a business imperative. It’s a competitive advantage, an economic opportunity and a driver of innovation. It’s part of a fundamental shift in the way MCI work and do business. Through sustainability we enhance the quality of our service, creating value for our clients, talent, and the communities which we serve. Guy Bigwood, Group Sustainability Director
But it was not always that way
