Sinéad said: “I am thrilled to join Sisk, the organisation has shown a high level of leadership in sustainability so far. The Sisk 2030 Sustainability Roadmap is a fantastic starting point and enables us to take on the sustainability challenges facing the construction industry and the broader society we serve.”
