Flannery are proud to have won the Ground Engineering Award for Sustainability at this year’s ceremony for our Eco-Operator training.
It’s no secret that machine usage is a core contributor to carbon-based emissions and that carbon reduction is now high on the agenda for the construction sector.
The long-term goals of net zero and all-electric solutions are well communicated and strategies are in place across the sector to meet them. However, in association with the Supply Chain Sustainability School and the Operator Skills Hub, we have been developing a shorter-term solution.
The judges commented:
“It was a unanimous decision by the judges to decide the winner. Flannery Plant Hire displayed a great approach to embedding sustainability throughout the supply chain, which will have positive outcomes to the wider industry and across a number of projects for years to come. The initiative has empowered a wide audience to change their behaviours to deliver quantifiable sustainable benefits, showing that individual actions can make a significant difference.”
The course is accredited by the National Open College Network (NOCN) and is regularly reviewed and upgraded in line with client feedback and the data we can retrieve on ‘graduate’s’ machine usage in the field.
Flannery, HS2, SCS, Mott Macdonald and Danny Sullivan Group were also commended for their collaborative Black History Month event ‘Time for Change: Action not Words!’ held last October.
