The Environment Agency (EA), an organisation aimed at protecting and improving the environment, have taken their next step on their sustainability journey by becoming a Partner of the Supply Chain Sustainability School.
Earlier this year, the Environment Agency revealed their roadmap for reaching net zero by 2030, whereby they are committed to cutting their emissions by at least 45% by 2030 and then offsetting the remainder.
With 84% of their total carbon footprint coming from their supply chain, the Supply Chain Sustainability School will play an integral role in supporting them with their Net Zero strategy. How they interact with their supply chain, will have a huge impact on not just their progress against their net zero goals, but also their resource consumption, what social value they can deliver through their supply chain, and how they protect and enhance nature.

Simon Dawes, Head of Sustainable Business Strategy at the Environment Agency, said: “We’re one of the first government organisations to join the school, and that’s indicative of our ambition to lead the way in terms of sustainability. But we also know we don’t have all the answers. We want to learn, share, grow, explore, and influence where we can.”
Shaun McCarthy OBE, Chair of the Supply Chain Sustainability School, said: “The role of the client in driving supply chain performance cannot be understated. I am delighted to welcome the Environment Agency to the School – they join a growing band of major clients with a mutual interest in developing their supply chain capacity in a consistent and collaborative way.”
The School is co-funded by CITB and industry Partners, with the direction of the School being led by over 130 Partners – working in collaboration, they share knowledge and free resources to inspire the UK built environment to drive positive change and each share a common desire to upskill the industry.
