GAP Hire Solutions has again been awarded Gold Status for the Supply Chain Sustainability School’s plant commitment charter.
The accomplishment was received in recognition of the firm’s dedication to sustainable business practices and environmentally responsible operations.
GAP revealed the business excelled in all four core commitments outlined in the charter: Minimum Standard, Engagement, Awareness and Education, and Innovation.
The company’s achievements include impactful engagement activities that led to at least two tangible changes in procurement or hire decisions, favouring lower emission plant options. GAP also executed up to four training activities that effectively engaged employees and promoted the adoption of sustainable practices. The firm also contributed by sharing information on reducing embodied carbon.
This achievement enables GAP to share its sustainability-related knowledge with its supply chain to help them understand how sustainable business practices can deliver cost savings, enhance equipment efficiency, and mitigate risks.
The charter has been created by the Supply Chain Sustainability School’s plant group to help the built environment reduce onsite emissions. The four commitments set ‘rigorous’ standards for engine purchases within the GAP Group fleet, with a focus on reducing air quality impacts and carbon emissions.
