Environmental & Social Value Seminar

February 28 12:30 pm - 3:30 pm

Westerwood Hotel, Cumbernauld
1 Saint Andrews Drive Glasgow G68 0EW United Kingdom + Google Map

CECA Scotland are holding an Environment & Social Value Seminar on 28th February 2019, which will include presentations from the following organisations:

Naturally Compliant Ltd – Simon Knott, Director of Naturally Compliant will present on the environmental awareness training needs currently existing within the Scottish construction industry.  There is no doubt the need for environmental advice is set to increase significantly with the recent introduction of SEPA’s new Construction Site Licences (CSL) and SEPA Sector Plans and this session should prove invaluable to anyone working in this area and all interested in making their business operations more environmentally sustainable.

Sodak Ltd – Sodak Ltd has delivered various Management Development Programmes to CECA Scotland members over the last few years and during this session, Sodak’s Director, Bob Cummins, Bob will talk about their innovative management programme – what it is and why it’s different. He’ll provide an overview of the content covered together with highlights from the seventy plus CECA Scotland members who benefited from participation to date.  Bob will provide an overview of the key trends observed during the programme and outline the key business benefits of “seeing things differently”.

Poverty Alliance – Rachel Morrison, Living Wage Accreditation Officer will present on the benefits to construction companies of gaining Living Wage accreditation.  The scheme os designed to recognise and celebrate employers who go beyond their statutory obligations, by paying their staff a wage reflecting the real cost of living in the UK rather than the statutory minimum. While the civil engineering sector in Scotland is covered by the Construction Industry Joint Council (CIJC) agreement, meaning employees should already be receiving a living wage, there are still many social value benefits for CECA Scotland members in becoming accredited Living Wage employers. Rachel will outline the criteria and process involved in achieving accreditation and outline to delegates the many business benefits of becoming a Living Wage employer.

In addition, the CECA Scotland Annual General Meeting will also take place immediately prior to the seminar presentations.
