Economic

Our pledge is to work towards achieving ISO 20400 Sustainable Procurement and ISO 44001 Collaborative Working accreditations, this includes: 

All project bids over £1million to include an “Enhanced Sustainability’ option to allow clients the opportunity to choose what is materially important to their organisations. 

For our Economic pledges as part of The WARD Way sustainability road map to 2030 we are focusing on several themes:

Sustainable procurement

Use our purchasing power to specify and procure materials and products that strike a responsible balance between social, economic, and environmental factors and generate benefits to society and the economy.

Local labour

We aim to support our local community by encouraging a local work force. Our target is for 70% of Ward employees to live within a 20 mile radius of their place of work.

Education and training

  • We offer several company wide Apprenticeship places per year. This will vary year to year depending upon the needs of the business, but we are committed to training homegrown staff to progress their career within the business 
  • We will continue our commitment to work with local colleges and universities to develop a structured work experience and research programme.
