Murphy Plant have signed up to a cross-sector commitment that aims to help reduce carbon emissions.
The Plant Commitment Charter was launched last year by the Supply Chain Sustainability School, and outlines five commitments that contribute to a cleaner working environment and help the UK reduce its carbon emissions to net zero by 2050. Reducing our impact on the environment where we work is a central part of our sustainability strategy.
The use of fossil fuels to power construction plan and equipment (CPE) contributes to two direct impacts: poor local air quality and related health impacts on those working in, and living around, construction sites.
THE FIVE COMMITMENTS
Minimum standards in procurement: We will buy or hire CPE that meets or exceeds the minimum standards for AQ and GHG emissions, as laid out in the latest version of accompanying technical paper3
Engagement: We will engage suppliers and contractors up and down the value chain to actively participate in meeting the same minimum standards to contribute towards our aims
Awareness raising and education: We commit to providing our supply chain with the skills, knowledge and confidence they need to achieve our aims
Measurement and reporting: We will measure progress in reducing our emissions and report them to relevant stakeholders
Innovation: We will investigate, trial and implement new technologies that will help us on the route to zero emissions onsite
