The UK government’s Construction Strategy calls on industry to reduce emissions by 50%, reduce costs by 33%, and build twice as fast. The sector needs to Build Back Better.
High priority challenges faced by clients and contractors include:
- Zero carbon
- Circular economy
- Biodiversity net gain
- Social value
- Modern slavery
- Air quality
- Fairness, Inclusion & Respect
- The skills gap
Simply put, the industry needs to deliver more for less, and the role of the supply chain has never been more critical.
“Having suppliers who understand the sustainability agenda is essential: we cannot deliver our sustainable development targets and ambitions without them. Since the school opened in 2012, we have seen a remarkable increase in the knowledge, skills and enthusiasm of our supply chain.”Julia Barrett, Director - Willmott Dixon Re-Thinking
