Loughborough-led Manifesto calls for more ethical sourcing in construction

12 November 2015

A Loughborough University professor is leading a national call for more ethical sourcing within the construction industry.

The UK construction industry consumes enormous amounts of materials, but only one – wood – is currently protected by legislation.

Professor Jacqueline Glass from Loughborough University’s School of Civil and Building Engineering says workers throughout the industry should know where their materials come from, and ensure they are sourcing responsibly.

Following the recent launch of a new Design Guide, a ground-breaking UK Manifesto for Ethical Sourcing in Construction is being officially unveiled at the fifth Action Programme for Responsible Sourcing conference in London on November 24.
