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 firstname.lastname@example.org or Ben.Lowles@skanska.co.uk.
