Supply Chain Innovation Showcase

8th October 2018 - 31st December 2018

Skanska and the City of London Corporation invite you to apply to the 2018 Supply Chain Innovation Showcase.

The showcase gives businesses a platform to gain visibility amongst their clients in the Facilities Management industry and promote innovations which enhance sustainability. It is open to any current or prospective member of Skanska or City of London Corporation’s supply chain in the Facilities management sector who are working to develop and deliver greener or more sustainable products, services or solutions, either independently or in collaboration with other organisations.

The process is simple - businesses submit their innovative products, services or solutions using the form below. It is open to products or solutions which are existing in the market, or those that may be in development or pilot stages and not yet to market.

Throughout January 2019, the innovations will be reviewed and shortlisted by a select panel from Skanska and City of London. Shortlisted suppliers will be invited to showcase and discuss their solutions with a series of FM clients from a range of sectors within London in February 2019.

In conjunction with the launch of the supply chain showcase, Skanska and the City of London are hosting an event in partnership with the Supply Chain Sustainability School to discuss the challenges of adopting sustainability within the context of the FM market, and how our businesses can facilitate more progress and collaboration on the sustainability journey of SME’s. The event will be held on November 29th 2018, for more information please contact lizzie.rendell@skanska.co.uk or Ben.Lowles@skanska.co.uk.
