ecobuild partners with Considerate Constructors Scheme27 November 2017
ecobuild 2018 is proud to announce that it is partnering with the Considerate Constructors Scheme (CCS).
The CCS – the national organisation established to improve the image of the construction industry – will be working with ecobuild over the forthcoming months to develop a set of criteria for the event to demonstrate its considerate credentials, in line with the CCS’s Code of Considerate Practice.
Martin Hurn, Managing Director of ecobuild, said: “We are really excited to have the Scheme partnering with ecobuild 2018. We will be using the Scheme’s Code as an industry standard to help ensure the event is achieving high standards in key areas such as: being an inclusive and respectful event for everyone; and minimising the environmental impact of the event through waste and resource management. The Scheme’s fundamental values represent everything we work hard to promote at ecobuild, and together, I am confident that we will be able to have a positive impact on the industry and its image.”
Scheme Chief Executive Edward Hardy said: “The Scheme is delighted to partner with ecobuild 2018. The aim of the partnership is to make the event as considerate as possible in respect of the environment, workforce and community.
“With thousands of visitors and hundreds of exhibitors and presenters attending construction events each year, events have an extremely important role in showcasing the very best image of the construction industry. As such, partnering with ecobuild – one of the UK’s industry-leading events – was a natural fit in order to support the event to demonstrate its considerate credentials.
“We look forward to this Partnership inspiring other like-minded events to work with the Scheme to improve standards and promote a positive image of the construction industry in the future”.

About the Considerate Constructors Scheme:
The Considerate Constructors Scheme is a non-profit-making, independent organisation founded in 1997 by the construction industry to improve its image.
Construction sites, companies and suppliers voluntarily register with the Scheme and agree to abide by the Code of Considerate Practice. The Code commits those registered with the Scheme to care about appearance, respect the community, protect the environment, secure everyone’s safety and value their workforce.
The Scheme monitors any area of construction activity that may have a direct or indirect impact on the image of the industry as a whole.
The Scheme provides the Best Practice Hub, a comprehensive online resource showcasing best practice in the construction industry. The Best Practice Hub hosts a wealth of tips, expertise, guidance and case studies to help constructors learn from their peers and raise industry standards.
