Last week, two members of MGF’s Sustainability Working Group attended the Net Zero Summit in Coventry.
The summit was a great day for our SHEQ Manager, Eddie Prendergast and National Account Manager, Leo Picking, to network with like-minded individuals who are facing the same challenges within the industry as we continue our journey to net zero carbon.
Eddie and Leo had the opportunity to discuss the challenges, explore the solution, and attend various expert panels that delved into topics such as the talent and skills challenge, the materials challenge, and science-based targets. All of these topics affect our industry and any opportunity to collaborate, identify key factors and discuss triumph will help reach a solution sooner.
“It was a really interesting day at the summit, a very well organised event that was a great opportunity to network with other construction businesses, whilst gaining updates and insights into the industry’s changing attitude towards sustainability and moving a step closer to achieving net zero carbon.”National Account Manager, Leo Picking.
As a company, we have been utilising the Supply Chain Sustainability School training modules alongside in-house modules for internal training to increase the knowledge and awareness of the challenges faced and the simple everyday changes we can all make to become more sustainable.
“We are fortunate to have a tool at our disposal such as the sustainability school therefore it was enlightening to attend several seminars on important subject matters that align with MGF and to gage our current position in terms of sustainability management. What was evident is that every business’ net zero journey is unique, and we are making good progress and will continue to collaborate internally and externally with our customers and suppliers to ensure we adopt good and best practices and set ourselves testing but achievable targets.”
SHEQ Manager, Eddie Prendergast.
