Gold Supply Chain Sustainability School membership helps Powerday spread sustainability message

Powerday has been recognised as a gold level member of the Supply Chain Sustainability School after embracing the free construction industry tools to support the company’s sustainability programme.

Supply Chain Sustainability School (SCSS) is a construction industry collaboration that aims to share knowledge and resources between clients, contractors and the supply chain.  Powerday has used the free resources, available to all those in the built environment sector, to build understanding of all areas of sustainability, and what’s most important to clients, across the company.

As part of this, every new starter at Powerday is required to complete at least three online resources that are applicable to the waste management and construction industry.  This ensures a baseline understanding of sustainability for those new to the industry.  We are also using the SCSS resources to further build on the knowledge of those already employed.

Tara Crossan, Client Relationship Lead, Powerday says: “Powerday is committed to being a responsible business and integrating sustainability to build a cleaner, healthier future.  To achieve this, we see sustainability as everybody’s role.  The Supply Chain Sustainability School provides great resources to help us upskill employees, understand what clients want, and deliver against their sustainability agendas and our own.  I’d recommend any business in this sector to take advantage of these free tools and help our industry to deliver a more sustainable future”.

Powerday unveiled our first Sustainabiity and Wellness Manifesto in March this year.  The Manifesto outlines how we are delivering our mission to reduce the environmental impacts of the UK’s waste whilst improving lives of young Londoners through education, employment, and sport through five sustainability pillars: employees, community, clients, carbon management and procurement.
