As part of its commitment to providing sustainable solutions and helping reduce the environmental footprint of the built environment, Lafarge Tarmac has backed the launch of a new infrastructure sustainability resource by The Supply Chain Sustainability School. Launched in 2012, the Supply Chain Sustainability School champions the development of a supply chain capable of meeting the sustainability aspirations of both contractors and clients. Lafarge Tarmac is one of a number of SSCS partners including Balfour Beatty, BAM, Carillion, Galliford Try, HS2 and National Grid. Partner organisations share their combined experience, in nurturing sustainable supply chain relationships and driving innovative, collaborative working.
Speaking at the inauguration event of the new School for Infrastructure, Lafarge Tarmac CEO Cyrille Ragoucy, said: “Sustainability is embedded at the heart of our business and applies to every aspect of our operations. However, creating a more sustainable built environment will take the efforts of the whole industry, which is why the Supply Chain Sustainability School for Infrastructure is so important, since it provides the perfect platform for a more collaborative approach. Working alone can only achieve so much, and closer collaboration and sharing of ideas will help us to embed sustainability and encourage continuous improvement.”
