Our Nuclear business has recently held its first Green Plant Day in Cumbria in collaboration with our supply chain family. The event showcased new and exciting alternatives to traditional plant and equipment as part of our drive to achieve net-zero carbon emissions.
The event demonstrated the equipment available to help us achieve our environmental goals. Technologies on display included a range of electric plant and vehicles, battery-operated equipment and solar-powered lighting.
"This event is just one of the ways we will continue to drive forward innovative ideas and approaches that enable us to safely, responsibly and collaboratively design solutions that deliver the best for our clients, for Cumbria and for the UK."
Eldon Garnett, Managing Director, Morgan Sindall Infrastructure Nuclear, said: “We were absolutely delighted to bring this event to Cumbria. We are on the road to net-zero and reducing our operational carbon by 25% by 2025. This event is just one of the ways we will continue to drive forward innovative ideas and approaches that enable us to safely, responsibly and collaboratively design solutions that deliver the best for our clients, for Cumbria and for the UK. We can't do this alone and we all must play our part; by working together, with our supply chain, we can achieve our collective goals.”
As a responsible business, we believe in delivering positive change through protecting and developing our people, improving the environment, working together with our supply chain and enhancing the communities in which we operate.
The event showcased what is ready and available to help key stakeholders and customers achieve their environmental goals with technologies on display including a range of electric plant and vehicles, battery-operated equipment and solar-powered lighting. Members of the Morgan Sindall Infrastructure Nuclear team and supply chain were also in attendance to answer questions about the application of this equipment.
