On Wednesday 6th September, Unipart Rail hosted our first Sustainability Conference at the UKRRIN (UK Rail Research and Innovation) Hub, located at our Head Office in Doncaster.
Over 70 guests attended the event which featured speakers from Unipart Rail and Unipart Group, alongside guest speakers from The Supply Chain Sustainability School and Ethstat Social Enterprise.
The Supply Chain Sustainability School hosted an interactive workshop for attendees which enabled them to understand the different sources and impacts of Scope 1, 2, and 3 emissions and challenged them to create a strategic plan for reducing their emissions.
We also showcased a series of sustainable product demonstrations, all designed to support decarbonisation and improve performance.
Liz Hancock, Head of HSE, said “This event provided the perfect opportunity for us to engage with our customers, stakeholders and internal colleagues, to raise awareness of the sustainable activities and practices that are embedded in our culture across the Unipart Group of companies, to highlight areas where we are substantially reducing our carbon footprint, and to support them on their sustainability journeys. We had very positive feedback from delegates and are already receiving requests for us to help them with their own sustainable journeys.”
This is the first Sustainability Conference we have delivered and we look forward to hosting more of these in the future.
