Macfarlane Group makes excellent progress with ESG commitments


Following the publication of the Macfarlane Group’s latest sustainability report, the Barum & Dewar team would like to extend our congratulations to everyone involved across the Group in the latest reported achievements. ESG continues to rise higher on our agenda and on our clients’ agendas and we are proud to be part of a Group that priorities this commitment and delivers successfully on its goals.

Key highlights of the report include:

  • 22% absolute reduction in Macfarlane’s carbon footprint and a 37% reduction in carbon sales intensity since 2019
  • Nearly 90% of the Group’s electricity now comes from certified renewable sources
  • Significant improvement in the Group’s Customer Net Promotor score to 60 (2022: 50)
  • Over a third of the senior leadership team are female and Macfarlane Group achieved a 0% gender pay gap
  • Extensive support to the Group’s charity partners through volunteering, logistics and raising vital funds

Commenting on the results of the 2023 report, David Patton, Macfarlane Group’s Head of Sustainability said: “Our 2023 Sustainability Report shows progress across a number of areas as we reduce our own impact on the environment but also work with our customers and suppliers to reduce theirs. We will continue to build on this progress and use our position to advance our social agenda too; supporting our colleagues, creating a great place to work and being a force for good in the local communities where we operate.”
