October 4th, 2021

Glencar Construction has today announced that it has appointed James Scott into the new role of Head of Sustainability.

James will be responsible for leading the development and implementation of a robust sustainability strategy across all areas of the business, in line with Glencar’s strategic vision. Before joining Glencar, James was a Sustainability Consultant, working for clients in the construction, retail and robotics industries on a diverse range of projects.

Glencar Managing Director Eddie McGillycuddy commented: “We are delighted to welcome James into this crucial new role for the business. The construction industry has a huge opportunity and indeed responsibility to drive the sustainability agenda and we are committed to being at the forefront of this.

James will have the full support of the entire Glencar team to drive this crucial area of the business forward and bring our vision for environmental and social governance to life. We look forward to him getting started and working with our customers and consultants on supporting their ESG strategy.”

Also commenting, James Scott said: “The world is facing unprecedented environmental challenges that impact all of us, in our work and our home lives. I think we all understand that the industry we work in has a significant role to play in tackling these existential threats. Glencar, as a growing and agile construction company, has a huge opportunity to make a clear, bold commitment to its sustainability position in the industry.

I’m therefore very excited to be appointed in this role for Glencar. Part of my role starts with the articulation of this position, and, with the support of everyone in the company, the development of a roadmap to realise this vision. As the term roadmap suggests, this will be a journey. Key priority areas for the company are net zero carbon, climate change resilience, responsible procurement, waste and the circular economy, and delivering social value. I look forward to meeting everyone and working to deliver Glencar’s commitment to being a
successful, sustainable business for years to come.”
