Ecobuild partners with Considerate Constructors Scheme

Published:  29 November, 2017

Ecobuild has announced a partnership with the Considerate Constructors Scheme (CCS) for its 2018 show and beyond.

The CCS will be working with ecobuild over the forthcoming months to develop a set of criteria for the event to demonstrate its considerate credentials, in line with the CCS’s Code of Considerate Practice.

Martin Hurn, Managing Director of ecobuild owner Futurebuild Events, 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; and 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.”

Scheme Chief Executive Edward Hardy said: “The Scheme is delighted to partner with ecobuild 2018. The aim of the partnership is to make the event as considerate as possible in respect of the environment, workforce and community.

“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 was a natural fit in order to support the event to demonstrate its considerate credentials.”
