Steel’s sustainability message goes to school

Posted on by in News

Cairnhill Structures has become one of the first UK contractors to actively take the increasingly important message of environmental sustainability into schools.

Coatbridge-based steelwork contractor Cairnhill has developed some bespoke sustainability modules which explain the vital connections between industry and the finite resources of the natural world.

The educational resource which contains training packs designed to engender greater understanding of sustainability, is being introduced at St Patrick’s School in Coatbridge, a historic steel-producing area, and could be rolled out in other schools in the region.

Jack Sanderson, Cairnhill’s Managing Director, said: “Sustainability is the way forward for the industry. It not only makes good business sense, but it helps to preserve scarce resources for future generations.”

“As a company which is committed to our community and our environment, we are delighted to be able to take part in this schools initiative and look forward to contributing to the understanding of sustainability.”

Cairnhill has set itself, and met, stringent sustainability targets over the past two years, resulting in it becoming the only structural steel works in Scotland to receive the BCSA’s Sustainability Award.
