Rail engineers strike gold in sustainability school


Multidisciplinary engineering business Dyer & Butler has earned Gold level status from the Supply Chain Sustainability School (SCSS).

Dyer & Butler achieved a Gold badge.

This is the highest level of membership and is a measure of how well a business is engaged with the school and its environmentally friendly knowledge sharing.

Dyer & Butler has said that partnering with the school has provided it with access to a wide range of sustainability learning and development resources. It added that the partnership is proving a huge success and its staff has already recorded over 300 hours of activity on the SCSS resource hub –including almost 200 hours of Continuing Professional Development (CPD) accredited resources.

Dyer & Butler also said that it has used benchmarking provided through SCSS to learn it is exceeding the sector average in several key areas that form part of its own, and its clients’, environmental, social and corporate governance (ESG) strategy. These include community, environmental management, biodiversity and ecology, energy and carbon, fairness, inclusion and respect, training and skills, and employment.

A spokesperson for SCSS said: “The school is delighted to recognise Dyer & Butler as a Gold Member. They join our most active cohort of members; consistently engaging with the School whilst sharing their knowledge with others and demonstrating an increase in sustainability competence.”

Dyer & Butler’s safety, sustainability and training director, Steve Broom, said: “Sustainability addresses the social, economic and environmental challenges that we address each day across our operations. We recognise the vital importance of continually challenging ourselves and our supply chain partners to push the boundaries of operating more responsibly and sustainably and we are therefore delighted to have achieved SCSS Gold level status.
