The School was founded by Skanska with support from Kier, Lend Lease, Morgan Sindall, Sir Robert McAlpine, Willmott Dixon and Aggregate Industries and represents a common approach to addressing sustainability within our supply chains.
The project has been backed by funding from the CITB-ConstructionSkills Growth Fund and is being delivered by an independent third party, Action Sustainability.
The Supply Chain Sustainability School is a virtual learning environment that aims to help construction suppliers and sub-contractors develop their sustainability knowledge and competence.
It has been designed to help further address the challenges faced by our industry and to help the supply chain benefit from the many new opportunities that are emerging through sustainable business.
The School, which provides suppliers with practical and free support and a selfhelp assessment, will allow organisations to assess their current sustainability strengths, as well as identify any areas in need of development. The School will also provide a prioritised action plan as well as a range of free tools, e-learning and sustainability training.
Access to the School is free and participation is voluntary and not linked to prequalification.
In time, the founding members hope the School will become the industry standard learning environment for suppliers who want to develop their sustainability competence.
