To support our 'Together for the Future' environmental, social, and governance (ESG) strategy, and our relentless commitment to reducing our environmental footprint with the aim of achieving carbon neutrality in our operations by 2030, we established a clear objective: to collaborate with the Supply Chain Sustainability School (SCSS) and secure a prestigious Gold level membership. We are thrilled to announce that Crest Building Products, a proud member of the Brickability Group PLC, has successfully accomplished this goal today!
The Supply Chain Sustainability School (SCSS) is a renowned industry-wide initiative dedicated to fostering collaborative efforts within the supply chain for a sustainable future in the construction sector. Committed to realising their vision of an industry where everyone possesses the skills and knowledge necessary to drive sustainability, they provide their members with valuable, complimentary educational resources spanning various domains, including sustainability, procurement, inclusivity, respect, management, and personnel development. Gold level membership is presented to those who consistently engage in learning, monitor progress, actively participate in events, demonstrate tangible business improvements, and engage in collaborative endeavours with fellow supply chain stakeholders.
Among our various teams, our employees have reported that their involvement with the SCSS has notably enhanced their understanding and confidence when addressing sustainability-related issues, especially in their interactions with our esteemed suppliers and customers. The e-learning modules offered cover essential topics such as carbon reduction, climate change, social responsibility, and modern slavery. Our next steps involve crafting tailor-made action plans specific to our individual teams and identifying areas for enhancement across our enterprises. Additionally, we aim to foster deeper partnerships with our suppliers and customers to further contribute to the collective effort in steering us towards a more sustainable future.
