“We provide long term sustainable value to homebuyers, communities and shareholders. Our success is dependent upon forging mutually beneficial relationships with our supply chain partners. We view the School as a vital support mechanism to facilitate improved understanding and application of sustainability; strengthening supply chain relationships and helping to tackle wider societal and environmental challenges faced by our industry.” Robert Macdiarmid, Group Sustainability Director
Redrow is one of the UK's leading residential property developers, aiming to be the developer of choice for customers, landowners, suppliers, subcontractors and investors. Our sustainability strategy, Aspirations 2018, guides and measures performance across the business, embedding sustainability values throughout our operations and ensuring continual review and improvement.
These values are incorporated into our sustainable procurement process. We seek to work with suppliers and subcontractors that are able to demonstrate their commitment to sustainability through their own codes of practice and specify products and materials that generate the least impact on the environment.
Establishing these criteria at the outset means we start the dialogue about sustainability with our supply chain partners in the early stages of a relationship, improving ongoing communications. This has proved beneficial, enabling us to develop an appreciation of the key drivers important to us all. Utilising this knowledge we have delivered operational efficiencies and identified product improvements.
We feel that our partnership with the Supply Chain Sustainability School will enable us to further develop our relationships and support our supply chain in embedding sustainability into their operations.
