The IP Central project team organised their second food collection and donation to the Camden Foodbank for Easter. Following the success of the Christmas food bank collection last year, the Skanska team and supply chain partners collected donations from office- and site-based colleagues working on the project.
A special mention goes to Woodlands Site Services site manager Jamie Macdonald, who raised awareness of the drive by putting up posters, facilitated the donations, and found a lockable space to store the collected items until they were delivered to the foodbank.
Camden Foodbank manager, Abi Odujoko, helped to unload donations from the van and later sent an email to thank the team for its generous contribution:
“On behalf of all the trustees and volunteers of the Camden Foodbank, I would like to extend a big "thank you" for your wonderful truckload of donations. We very much appreciate your help with the work we do within the Camden community and the wider London area. We look forward to working together to make our communities hunger free.”
The IP Central framework covers civil engineering work on the London North West region of Network Rail’s Infrastructure Projects (IP) arm, which works to increase capacity on the rail network. #careforlife #bebettertogether

Great to see Microsoft using the Embodied Carbon Calculator for Construction (EC3) to cut carbon emissions when constructing new buildings at their headquarters in Redmond, Washington. The EC3 is a digital tool being developed by Skanska's climate expert Stacy Smedley together with our development team. It is a new, open-source tool to find, use and incentivize lower-carbon building materials. More about Microsoft’s work on sustainability and how they will achieve their goal of cutting carbon emissions with 75% by 2030 in this blog by Microsoft President Brad Smith:
