Sustainability in the Finishes and Interiors Sector
FIS is committed to taking a pro-active lead, not just in supporting the UK ambition to net zero carbon by 2050, but delivering profound transformation within our supply chain on all aspects of ethical and environmental sustainability.
In this toolkit we look at some of the key actions that you can take and also some of the wider sector initiatives that can support your business in setting a sustainability strategy. The aim is to support companies in meeting the ethical and environmental aspects of sustainability considered from the three dimension of planet, people and profit across the entire construction supply chain. Definitions of sustainability do vary, but focus is on where our sector can make a positive impact in line with the UN Sustainability goals and the Net Zero agenda in the UK.
