Scheme partners with ecobuild 2018
The Scheme will be working with the national industry event, ecobuild 2018, over the forthcoming months to develop a set of criteria for the event to demonstrate its considerate credentials, in line with the Code of Considerate Practice.
The aim of the partnership is to make the event as considerate as possible in respect of the environment, workforce and community.
ecobuild is one of the UK’s leading construction events. At the very heart of the conference is how the industry addresses the key issue of sustainability. It provides the opportunity to give the built environment industry to highlight, debate and present big picture issues, what matters to it now and in the future.
Surrounding the ecobuild conference will be curated areas, shining a light on innovation and demonstrating the different ways in which disciplines within the built environment sector approach sustainability.
Scheme Chief Executive Edward Hardy said:
The Scheme is delighted to partner with ecobuild 2018. With thousands of visitors and hundreds of exhibitors and presenters attending construction events each year, events have an extremely important role in showcasing the very best image of the construction industry. As such, partnering with ecobuild – one of the UK’s industry-leading events – was a natural fit in order to support the event to demonstrate its considerate credentials.
We look forward to this Partnership inspiring other like-minded events to work with the Scheme to improve standards and promote a positive image of the construction industry in the future.
Martin Hurn, Managing Director of ecobuild, said:
We are really excited to have the Scheme partnering with ecobuild 2018. We will be using the Scheme’s Code as an industry standard to help ensure the event is achieving high standards in key areas such as being an inclusive and respectful event for everyone as well as minimising the environmental impact of the event through waste and resource management.
The Scheme’s fundamental values represent everything we work hard to promote at ecobuild, and together, I am confident that we will be able to have a positive impact on the industry and its image.
