  • 10 Sep 2020

CMS Group Support Services Director Martin McCrimmon has been named the 2020 Institute of Directors (IoDScotland Director of the Year – ‘Social Value & Sustainability Impact’ at this year’s virtual awards ceremony.

This was in recognition of his achievements in delivering the company’s pioneering sustainability strategy, over the past 14 years.

In winning the inaugural ‘Social Value & Sustainability Impact’ award, sponsored by Zero Waste Scotland, Martin has triumphed in a category that sets out to reward the most ethical, socially responsible or ‘green’ business leaders across the UK.

Speaking of Martin’s achievements, the IoD Scotland Director of the Year Awards judges said: “Martin clearly demonstrates a real passion for achieving environmental targets and social impact and has proven how financial and business success can go hand in hand with environmental sustainability.

“He shows strong evidence of leadership and strategic decision-making. Martin is driven by ethics and values, with investment in supporting young people and excluded groups into employment.

“Martin has clearly placed a specific focus on achieving sustainable growth, including through the employment of a full-time environmental advisor.”

Martin is directly responsible for CMS’ sustainability strategy; supported by a team which includes a full time in-house environmental advisor – Amy Ledger – this strategy has pioneered new approaches to how a window, door and curtain walling manufacturing and installation business can operate.

The result has been to minimise its carbon footprint and protect and enhance its local environment, whilst providing customers with dependable solutions that enable them to reach their own sustainability targets.

David Ritchie, CEO of the CMS Group, commented: “Huge congratulations to Martin winning this new IoD Scotland award, which is very well deserved.

“His innovative thinking has enabled CMS to make a difference in so many areas of social and environmental sustainability, including putting in place the processes and facilities that are vital to ensure we can continuously reduce our resource use across both our manufacturing and installation operations.”
