The hire giant has launched its One Plan sustainability strategy which combines new services, supplier incentives and internal initiatives.
It will enable contractors to reduce carbon emissions, improve health and safety and increase efficiency.
Services provided under One Plan include the Green Options product range, sustainability consultancy, fuel management, energy and carbon reduction and waste assurance services.
Speedy launched One Plan to 100 suppliers at its annual supplier conference last month. Suppliers were invited to join the Supplier Excellence Programme where they will be assisted in improving their own sustainability practices.
The programme is designed to help them implement change through a mixture of workshops and on-site reviews.
Andy Connor, supply chain director at Speedy, said: “At Speedy, sustainability isn’t just a buzz word – we place it at the heart of all we do.
“That’s why we’re not just going to help our customers improve their own sites; we’re also going to encourage our suppliers to do the same by providing them with the skills and knowledge they need to improve their own businesses and make best practice in these areas a condition of working with us.
“This is a collaborative approach that we hope will implement best practice at both ends of our supply chain.
“For our customers, One Plan offers improved efficiency, reduced costs and competitive advantage. For our suppliers, One Plan means we’re setting the bar high, and will seek to establish a long term relationship with those that take sustainability equally seriously.”
