Supply chain insights
The predominant model in UK construction means that the supply chain is responsible for c.80% of the sector’s emissions and therefore holds the key to unlocking the massive carbon reduction needed. Understanding how prepared the supply chain is and where it needs more support is therefore imperative.
Balfour Beatty has partnered with the Supply Chain Sustainability School, to undertake a joint survey targeting near 40,000 of the construction and infrastructure industry’s suppliers, to understand the barriers, issues and opportunities faced by the sector.
We published our findings in our latest thought paper Greening the Chain: Overcoming barriers for a Net Zero Supply Chain. We aim to provide free access to key recommendations for policy makers, customers, and main contractors to enable the industry to achieve net zero by 2050.
