SIG UK has appointed Lorna Stork to the newly created role of environment, sustainability and governance director.

The move highlights the group’s recognition of its potential to make a positive contribution to the environmental performance of the construction sector supply chain.

With an academic background in environmental management and over 15 years’ practical experience in the construction sector, Lorna joins SIG with a profound understanding of both manufacturing and contracting.

Her role will be to focus on the contribution that SIG can make at all levels of its distribution service. First is to develop a net zero carbon strategy for the company’s own distribution activities.

Second is to develop SIG’s role in ensuring customers can meet the increasingly stringent requirements of building regulations and the sustainable building agenda.

Third is governance – ensuring that SIG is well positioned to give accurate advice on the environmental performance of the products it supplies.

Working in tandem with Lorna will be a second new role for SIG – the director of sustainable and renewable sales. This function will be to expand the SIG portfolio of low carbon / renewable products available through the company.
