ADEPT launches Corporate Members Scheme

For immediate issue

10 August 2016

ADEPT, the Association of Directors of Environment, Economy, Planning and Transport, has launched its new Corporate Members Scheme to build on its relationships with key partner companies.

The Corporate ADEPT Members Scheme was launched in June following approval by the membership in the Association’s AGM in May.

Rupert Clubb, ADEPT President, said: “Increasingly, ADEPT Members work in ever closer partnerships with our corporate suppliers, delivering key services and infrastructure provision throughout the country.

“These partnerships are vital to our work and our ability to deliver effective services. Creating programmes such as our Reducing Dependency programme with Ringway enables us to share best practice.”

The Ringway project focussed on enabling local authorities to manage demand for services through developing community involvement. Created with Ringway, ADEPT members from six participating Local Authorities took part in a series of workshops that examined how methods such as community commissioning and the co-creation of infrastructure schemes can work in practice.

Rupert continued: “Our partners will be working closely with us in evidencing and shaping policy development and delivery, work that we can share with Government.”

The first partners to sign up to the scheme include Atkins, Colas Ltd, FCC Environment, Kier Highways, Ringway Infrastructure Services Ltd and Veolia.
