To support its net-zero carbon commitment and its purpose of Making the World a Better Home, Saint-Gobain UK & Ireland is collaborating with an industry-led organisation designed to deliver substantial changes across construction and lower its carbon and environmental footprint.
Saint-Gobain has renewed its partnership with the Supply Chain Sustainability School (SCSS) to share its expert knowledge with industry and support the School’s mission to deliver a more sustainable built environment.
Backed by the UK’s top construction contractors and clients, the SCSS launched in 2012 to help meet the challenging sustainability targets set out by the UK Construction Strategy 2025, Saint-Gobain will actively participate in three main groups: Homes, Construction and Offsite.
Today, the SCSS supports its partners in learning and skills development for a sustainable future and in turn fosters collaboration and deepening relationships to overcome shared goals such as: reducing waste, energy and carbon and creating more efficient buildings that make the world a better home.
Mike Chaldecott, CEO, Saint-Gobain UK and Ireland, commented:
“We are proud to renew our partnership with the SCSS as we work towards achieving our purpose of Making the World a Better Home and meeting our net zero carbon target.
“We look forward to working with customers, suppliers and wider stakeholders to accelerate both our own and their sustainability journeys. It will also present many opportunities for our businesses to grow and develop in new ways. Only with collaboration of this kind can we deliver the substantial changes needed across construction.”
