Speedy tells suppliers they must improve

Equipment rental and support services firm Speedy has told its suppliers to improve on sustainability if they want to maintain their business relationship.

Speedy launched its sustainability strategy, One Plan, yesterday, and told suppliers to “keep up or risk losing out”.

Speedy supply chain director Andy Connor said “best practice” on sustainability would be “a condition of working with us”.

“For our suppliers, One Plan means we’re setting the bar high, and will seek to establish a long term relationship with those that take sustainability equally seriously,” he said. 

Speedy launched One Plan to 100 suppliers at its annual supplier conference last month.

Suppliers were invited to join the Supplier Excellence Programme where they will be assisted in improving their own sustainability practices.

The programme is designed to help them implement change through a mixture of workshops and on-site reviews.

Speedy will also be embedding its strategies internally.
