R G CARTER SUPPLY CHAIN COMMITMENT

At R G Carter we see our supply chain as much more than just a means to an end. Our supply chain and the people we work with each and every day, depend on us and our performance depends directly upon them. We make unrivalled efforts to build, maintain and evolve our relationships through constant evaluation, encouragement and collaboration at every stage of our projects.

An effective and trusted supply chain allows us to deliver ‘Total Project Delivery’ on behalf of our Clients and as such, we see it as our responsibility to ensure our suppliers share the same level of commitment and trust with us.

We achieve a shared level of commitment by developing long-term relationships, sourcing new partnerships and working repeatedly with our best performing suppliers to ensure we gain project efficiency and reduce overall costs; and because our sub-contractors are so important when it comes to delivering our client’s needs, we actively invest in these relationships.

We work with our suppliers to positively tackle sustainability, undertaking environmental initiatives such as reducing the use of transportation and waste, and carbon reduction. We also ensure the people we work alongside are recognised for their achievements and work together to deliver enhanced training in areas such as health and safety, sustainability and modern methods of construction.

At R G Carter we are committed to working with our supply chain to set new standards of ‘Total Project Delivery’.
