There has been a fundamental shift in business attitudes towards sustainability. No longer is it seen as separate to growing a business, instead an instrumental component for businesses of all sizes.

With ambitious net zero targets to meet by 2050, it’s incredibly important that larger businesses bring their SME supply chains with them on their ESG journey. Did you know, the combined carbon footprint of SME suppliers is on average 5.5 times greater? This ultimately, will have an impact on the metrics that large organisations report.

This article explains the crucial role corporate organisations play on the journey to net zero and shares the approach Morgan Sindall Construction (part of Morgan Sindall Group plc) is taking as part of its decarbonising communities strategy.
