Insulation, drywall, and ceiling product distributor CCF has appointed Phil Monkman to the newly created role of Head of Customer Sustainability as part of its ongoing commitment to improving environmental and operational efficiency within the supply chain.

As Head of Customer Sustainability, Phil will build on CCF’s commitment to developing practical solutions to help customers meet their own targets for a lower carbon future. It’s a role centred around innovation – he’ll be developing new ways of working collaboratively through the entire supply chain, looking at the key issues of reducing carbon emissions, increasing recycling and supporting waste management, to deliver tangible results for its customers.

One of the key initiatives that CCF has introduced in the last 12 months is its new carbon reporting service.  Currently in its first phase of development, this new tool will help improve the carbon footprint of the distribution link in the supply chain as well as making the materials delivery process as energy efficient as possible.

In his new role, Phil will collaborate with CCF’s development team as well as customers and suppliers to unlock future innovation and best practice that will benefit the entire supply chain.

Phil Monkman said of his new role: “It’s all about fostering collaboration between manufacturers, suppliers, customers as well as with other distributors. If we’re to achieve net zero we all have to work collaboratively and present real solutions for the whole supply chain to benefit from and that is going to be my main focus in this new position.

“CCF has already set out some really innovative initiatives and made headway in terms of improving sustainability from a supply chain perspective. Now I want to take these a step further to see how we can bring added benefits and value to our customers as part of this process. By understanding why these initiatives matter to our customers and tailoring them to provide the tangible benefits they need we’ll be well on our way to improving the distribution process, making it more sustainable and more efficient. I’m excited to see the impact these changes are going to have on the sector as a whole.”
