Groundwork and Interserve are working in partnership to help communities across the country.
As one of the world’s foremost support services and construction companies, Interserve is providing valuable assistance by donating materials and staff time to our projects.
The partnership uses surplus materials to help Groundwork carry out community projects and supports Interserve’s commitment to the environment by cutting waste.
Just as importantly, the materials are accompanied by the expertise of Interserve’s staff volunteering their time on site. Having a team of volunteers helping out is always a great thing, but it’s even better when they bring applicable skills, tools and experience with them.
This combination of materials and skilled volunteers helps us create projects that have an even greater impact on the communities they serve.
Tim Haywood, Group Finance Director and Head of Sustainability at Interserve said: "The vision of this partnership with Groundwork, a hugely respected charity, is to drive change in behaviour and attitudes across our business, our supply chain partners and local communities. We hope to do this by recognising the value of surplus material that is generated as a by-product of our business activities and by starting to treat waste as a resource and an opportunity, rather than a cost or a problem.
"This scheme is an exciting element of our plan to embed sustainability at the core of our operations and by working collaboratively with our partners, takes us further to becoming a sustainable business."
