The Supply Chain Sustainability School is partnering with Balfour Beatty to run a second survey of the UK construction supply chain, which goes live today (Wednesday, 24th August).

The aim of the ‘Greening the Supply Chain‘ survey is to understand how successfully the sector is decarbonising, and what further support it needs from Government, customers and others in the industry to deliver net zero carbon.

Anyone working in the UK built environment industry is invited to have their say by completing the survey.

This year, there are two versions of the Greening the Supply Chain survey, based on region:

The deadline to respond to the survey is 23:59 on Friday, 7th October. The survey is completely anonymous and takes only five to ten minutes to complete.

At the end of the survey, responses will go into a report that will be shared widely across the industry and with customers, Government and other stakeholders. This will then help inform the support offered to the built environment sector to decarbonise.

Last year’s survey targeted nearly 40,000 of the construction and infrastructure industry’s supply chain partners. The survey results were published in the report, Greening the Chain. It found that 87% of respondents were developing or already implementing a carbon reduction strategy. It also highlighted challenges such as lack of necessary skills and poor availability of low carbon materials. Read more about the 2021 survey here.

For 2022, we are also undertaking supporting interviews with a number of our Partners who will be quoted in the report. If you are keen to participate in this, please email [email protected] and we will follow up with you directly.

Those wishing to participate in the 2022 Greening the Supply Chain survey can anonymously complete the main version here and the Scottish version here.
