Travis Perkins is committed to supporting customers with the information, products and services they need to help modernise and decarbonise construction.

Customers tell us they need support on sustainable operations and sustainable construction. This means we have a key role in ensuring our customers have what they need to meet the latest requirements, so we can help to facilitate partnership innovation, decarbonisation and sustainable construction to the benefit of all.

In addition to developing our capabilities and expertise, we want to provide our customers with services and solutions to help them with their carbon, waste, material use or any other sustainability challenges and opportunities. It also requires improvements to the sustainability information and data we collate and provide, including embodied carbon and recycled content, and that we establish supplier and customer forums to share best practices and collaborate on solutions to meet the industry's shared challenges.

Working with suppliers, customers and wider industry to modernise construction and reduce carbon 

99% of the Group’s emissions are in its supply chain and 40% of the UK’s emissions are from the built environment. This is due primarily  to the embodied carbon from manufacturing the products sold and  the operational carbon of some of those products in use, such as gas boilers. Reducing Scope 3 requires the Group to engage with suppliers, customers and the wider industry to influence and drive change.


The Group works with manufacturers to encourage them to calculate and reduce their own emissions, develop new materials and products and provide product-level sustainability data, typically Environmental Product Declarations (“EPDs”).


The Group works with customers to help them build and operate more sustainably, providing the products, data and services they  need to decarbonise.

Wider industry

The Group leads working groups and engages with government and trade bodies to move forward decarbonisation across the industry.
