Ahead of its annual Supply Chain Awards, Sisk carried out research with its suppliers, sub-contractors and manufacturers that indicates an upward trend in sustainability awareness and engagement in the construction sector with 59 percent of its suppliers having a net-zero and carbon reduction plan compared with just 52 percent in 2022. Sisk is also perceived as being further advanced in its approach to eliminating carbon emissions across its business compared with other construction companies (2023: 51 percent) V (2022: 45 percent).

Over 60 percent of the Sisk supply chain are aware of its 2030 Sustainability Roadmap – Building today, Caring for tomorrow compared with 54 percent in 2022. Furthermore, 55 percent believe that Sisk is performing better in sustainability in comparison to other contractors.

As part of its 2030 sustainability roadmap ‘Building today, Caring for tomorrow’, Sisk submitted its greenhouse gas emission reduction targets to the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi). The SBTi drives ambitious climate action in the private sector by enabling organisations to set science-based emissions reduction targets. The SBTi’s Target Validation Team has classified Sisk’s scope 1 and 2 target ambition and has determined that it is in line with a 1.5°C trajectory.
