Protecting the future whilst maintaining today.
We want to leave a positive, sustainable legacy wherever we work. As such, our work around sustainability weaves many existing Network Plus initiatives together.
Our sustainability framework is built upon 4 key pillars, bringing many of our initiatives together:
- Taking care of the environment
- Helping communities thrive
- Being a great place to work
- Being a responsible business.
The Network Plus Sustainability Strategy has been developed to help support our journey to becoming a net-zero business by 2040. In 2023 we are setting a Near-Term Science Based Target (SBT) which will plot our emission reduction course for the next 10 years.
The 4 pillars of our Sustainability Strategy are implemented through a series of initiatives, ranging from our approach to building a low-emissions fleet, recycling aggregates and plastics to community projects, school engagement and engagement with Women in Industry.
Network Plus as adopted 3 corporate charities: Macmillan Cancer Support, Children’s Adventure Farm Trust (CAFT) and Toy Appeal, which we support through a variety of ways.
Some of our depots also support charities within their local area.
