reading time

The Supply Chain Sustainability School is an award-winning industry wide collaboration, led by our Partners and Members whose Vision for the School is to be ‘A world class collaboration to enable a sustainable built environment’. The School has over 45,000 users and includes all aspects of the industry, from infrastructure to facilities management.

We are proud to have been awarded Gold Membership, which is a testament to our commitment and engagement with the School. Andy Burrows, Lynch Operations Manager commented “Being a Gold Member, as well as Partner, is invaluable to Lynch. The resources that are available to us cover a diverse range of topics, from biodiversity to fairness, inclusion and respect. We find these greatly beneficial for training, toolbox talks and to help develop our understanding of these important topics.”

The impact for us as a business has been huge and we look forward to continuing our partnership with the school

Our commitment to sustainability has led to a variety of improvements, including hybrid and fully electric machines, the installation of solar panels and energy saving lighting at our Head Office. We want our activities to have a positive impact on the world we live in.

In addition to our Gold Membership, we were one of the first signatories of the Plant Charter, which aims to drastically reduce onsite emissions that are harmful to human health and the planet. We are also signatories of the People Matter Charter, which identifies what an organisation needs to have in place to treat people responsibly.

Andy adds that “The School does great work bringing together the whole industry, allowing us to share best practices in sustainability and we can now engage in conversations around this, rather than just speaking about cost and supply. This gives us focus on important topics and encourages the whole industry to treat people fairly, procure equipment and materials responsibly, and continue our sustainability journey."
