As the World’s leaders gather to address the climate emergency one Wales based steel manufacturer has taken further steps towards helping the construction industry become more sustainable.
Celsa Steel UK, based in Cardiff, has signed up to become a Partner of the award-winning Supply Chain Sustainability School to work in collaboration with the industry towards twin goals – a more sustainable and decarbonised construction sector.
Shaun McCarthy OBE, Chair of the Supply Chain Sustainability School said: “Celsa Steel UK is the latest large-scale manufacturer to join the School and commit to working with the construction industry to drive forward our goal of creating a more sustainable sector. Celsa’s commitment to creating a circular economy is admirable and we look forward to working in partnership with them both in Wales and across the UK.”
Already focused on creating a truly circular economy through the recycling of scrap metal to create their steel products, Celsa Steel UK is set to push forward ambitious new sustainability plans and targets.
Eoin Bailey, UK Innovation Manager for Celsa Steel said: “At a COP26 event last week the new Chief Sustainability Officer, Juan Carlos Orozco announced the vision for CELSA Group is ‘to be leaders of the CIRCULAR SUPPLY CHAIN to build a NET POSITIVE future’. For CELSA the pathway towards Net Zero and true Circularity are one in the same. In the UK we are certainly making strides from linear to circular. However, we know that true circularity and sustainable prosperity cannot be achieved in isolation, collaboration is the key. Therefore, we are delighted to join the school with hope to developing the collaborative approach that will help us all to build a positive future.”
With more than 50,000 registered learners, the School provides free practical learning and support in the form of sustainability training, events and networking, e-learning modules, tailored assessment, and a library of over 2,900 online resources.
The School’s Partner organisations are committed to building sustainability skills and knowledge across the industry. This will help safeguard the future of the UK’s built environment and ensure that it is fairer, greener, and more robust.
