Documents and Policies:
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.
We aim to build responsibly and create better places to live, by embedding sustainability values throughout our operations and ensuring continual review and improvement.
Sustainability and Supply Chain
We believe that sustainable development is achieved through a collaborative effort, so we actively engage with our supply partners to achieve this. Redrow have a well-established policy for partnering with our supply chain and through this; all of our suppliers and subcontractors are obliged to apply sustainable procurement principles to their sourcing activity. Furthermore, Redrow is also committed to ensuring that there is no Modern Slavery or human trafficking in our supply chains, and we have systems and controls in place to mitigate risks.
Establishing both social and environmental criteria with suppliers and subcontractors at the outset means that we start the dialogue about sustainability in the early stages of a relationship. This improves ongoing communications and enables us to develop an appreciation of the key drivers important to us all.
Why a Partner?
Our partnership with the Supply Chain Sustainability School has allowed us to further support our supply chain partners. Moreover, through enhanced stakeholder engagement, we have adopted a holistic approach towards sustainable development and our group sustainability strategy has delivered real social and environmental value.
“Our supply chain partners are central to our success in creating sustainable homes and communities as well as building responsibly. The Supply Chain Sustainability School provides a unique support network for our suppliers, helping develop their capability to deliver the sustainable outcomes we require for our customers and communities. It also provides an industry-wide approach to addressing the pressing sustainability needs we all face, and we are proud to be part of this movement.”Clive Parry, Group Commercial Director
Redrow Case Studies
Waste & Resource Efficiency Workshops
In March 2020, Redrow hosted a series of Waste and Resource Efficiency workshops in collaboration with the Supply Chain Sustainability School. The workshops introduced attendees to principles of resource efficiency, including practical measures to reduce waste and the financial benefits that can be achieved by this. The workshops supplemented the existing work that Redrow is already undertaking in this field.
As active participants in the School’s Waste Group, Redrow have contributed case studies and resources which are available to all users of the school. This includes information on Redrow’s ‘Reduce the Rubble’ waste project, which will analyse the waste produced during the construction of a typical Redrow home, and identify the key causes.
