GSS Piling Ltd (and its subsidiary Geostructural Solutions Ltd) as a part of the Morrisroe Group, applies principles of operating responsibly at every level of its business, for the benefit of all stakeholders, from its corporate governance, the products and materials procured, building methodology and the services delivered.
Our activities have an impact on the environment, our people, the communities in which we operate, our customers and supply chain, the people who occupy the buildings we construct and the broader society.

We strive to balance short-term and long-term interests as well as integrate economic, environmental, and social considerations into our strategic decision-making. We are openminded in dialogue with those who are affected by our operations and communicate with our stakeholders in a timely and effective manner.
This statement provides the basis for managing our Corporate Social Responsibilities and forms the starting point for developing and implementing our policies and procedures in this area.

Where possible we will use alternative materials and methods to optimise the use of resources in collaboration with our clients and supply chain.
