Sustainability & Supply Chain
Caring for our environment has long been our purpose as a business with our approach to sustainability focussing on 4 key areas
- Delivering Biodiversity Enhancements
- Achieving Carbon Net Zero
- Sourcing and using materials responsibly
- Delivering social value in the communities that we work
We know that we cannot achieve this without the support of our Supply chain. Our field teams and sub-contractors are often literally at the cutting edge of our operations and are well placed to see first-hand the opportunities for delivering our works more sustainably. As a responsible business we need to ensure they have access to the right skills and tools to enable them to do this. By evaluating the environmental, social and economic impacts of their services we can work together to deliver sustainably focussed solutions for our customers.

Being a partner, not only gives us greater access to these resources to benefit our own people and our supply chain, but also provides us with the opportunity to shape them along side the other partners. The School also helps us to be at the forefront of current sustainability thinking and emerging topics, enabling us to shape and grow our business more sustainably.
