The UK’s largest distributor of fuel and lubricants has shown its commitment to helping the construction industry become more sustainable by becoming a Partner to the Supply Chain Sustainability School.
Certas Energy, based in Warrington, joins 142 other companies from across the built environment supply chain who are working together through the School to create a more sustainable industry.
“COP 26 has shown, if we didn’t already know, just how vital it is that we address the sustainability challenge in the construction industry”, said Shaun McCarthy OBE, Director and Chair of the Supply Chain Sustainability School. “The industry has done brilliant work to deliver more sustainable projects but there’s still lots to do. We are delighted to welcome Certas Energy to the School, and we look forward to working with them to help decarbonise the industry and push sustainability to the forefront of delivery.”
Angus Blundell, Director of Corporate Affairs at Certas Energy adds: “We are proud to fuel the future success of our customers by helping them to meet their environmental goals during this important energy transition. We achieve this in diverse ways, from exploring cleaner alternative fuels to providing expert advice on improving fuel efficiency, reducing carbon emissions, and navigating legislative changes.”
Angus continues: “We are right there on the journey with our customers, with our own targets of net zero emissions by 2050 and a 20% reduction in carbon emissions by 2025. Joining the School expands on and confirms our commitment to these goals, and we look forward to collaborating with other like-minded partners in this next step on our journey. We can’t wait to get started.”
With more than 50,000 registered users, 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.
