Through the newly created role of Environment, Sustainability and Governance Director, Lorna Stork will be responsible for planning the positive contribution that SIG can make at all levels of its distribution service to environmental performance.
SIG UK Ltd has announced the appointment of Lorna Stork to the newly created role of Environment, Sustainability and Governance Director.
The company says the move highlights the Group’s recognition of its potential to make a positive contribution to the environmental performance of the construction sector supply chain.
With an academic background in Environmental Management and over 15 years’ practical experience in the construction sector, Lorna joins SIG with a profound understanding of both manufacturing and contracting.
The leading supplier says Lorna’s role will be to focus on the contribution that SIG can make at all levels of its distribution service, and the first step is to develop a net zero carbon strategy for SIG’s own distribution activities.
The second step is to develop SIG’s role in ensuring customers can meet the increasingly stringent requirements of building regulations and the sustainable building agenda, whilst third is governance and ensuring that SIG is well positioned to give accurate advice on the environmental performance of the products it supplies.
Working in tandem with Lorna will be a second new role for SIG – the Director of sustainable and renewable sales. This function, the company says, will be to expand the SIG portfolio of low carbon / renewable products available through SIG.
