With social value becoming an increasing focus for UK government policy and the National Infrastructure Strategy outlining the billions of investment to support economic growth, there is a focus on Economic Social and Governance Reporting for a better and fairer UK on the other side of the pandemic. The Public Contracts Regulations 2015 allow contracting authorities to incorporate social and environmental aspects in the tender evaluation process with a weighting of 10%. But, how do you measure the value of that change and the economic value of the work given to local businesses?

In this presentation, Bryan Cherry, Environmental Risk Survey Manager, and Richard Campbell, Head of Fuel Infrastructure Services, highlight the importance of establishing a baseline before setting out a strategy for carbon emission reduction. They will discuss how to establish a robust baseline and how best to set targets both within both the MoD estate and the wider supply chain. With the Office for National Statistics claiming that carbon emissions of the supply chain is 11% greater than the total emissions of the MoD, clearly your supply chain is an integral piece in the strategy.
