Another step towards reducing Single Use Plastics for Element Sustainability

Element Sustainability are pleased to announce we will be once again working with Sky in a continuing effort to remove all single-use plastics (SUPs) from its supply-chain, operations and products. Our role will be to support the stakeholders involved in the refurbishment of the new Sky Innovation Hub at Brentwood. This comes after a successful partnership with SKY to deliver their SUPs minimisation pilot project for the fit-out of their Leeds office.

Furthermore, Element Sustainability are close to achieving the BREEAM rating ‘Very Good’ for Sky’s Leeds office project. Following this successful collaboration, we are delighted to be working with the design and construction team again on the new project at the Sky Innovation Hub in Brentwood with the aspiration to achieve another BREEAM ‘Very Good’ rating.

Building upon the pilot scheme, our method will involve engaging with the main stakeholders (contractor, IT department and suppliers) to assess opportunities for each organisation to reduce their SUP consumption while determining any feasible alternatives and procedures. The findings and lessons learnt from the Sky Leeds SUPs project will allow us to monitor and reduce the consumption and use of plastics throughout the construction programme of this Brentwood project more efficiently.

Sky aspires to remove all Single Use Plastics from its operations by 2020. Element Sustainability look forward to continuing our work with Sky to implement more effective strategies of SUP reduction in support of their commitment to the ‘Plastic Revolution’
