Supply Chain Sustainability School
The Supply Chain Sustainability School is a free, virtual learning environment that aims to help construction suppliers and sub-contractors develop their sustainability knowledge and competence. It was designed to help address the challenges faced by the construction industry and to help the supply chain benefit from the many new opportunities that are emerging through sustainable business.
The School was founded by Skanska with support from Kier, Willmott Dixon, Lend Lease, Morgan Sindall, Sir Robert McAlpine, CEEQUAL and Aggregate Industries and represents a common approach to addressing sustainability within the supply chain. The School is part funded by CITB Construction Skills via the Growth Fund, and is being delivered by an independent 3rd party, Action Sustainability.
The School launched in June this year, and already has over 1500 Members benefiting from the wide range of tailored practical and free support on offer. The School provides:
- A free online self help assessment tool which allows organisations to assess current sustainability strengths, and identify areas in need of development.
- A tailored, prioritised Action Plan to reflect the outcome of the online self-assessment. This signposts organisations to the most relevant and effective learning resources appropriate.
- Fully funded face to face training courses linked to specific sustainability related issues
- An online resource library offering a wide range of free, carefully selected sustainability related tools, E-learning modules, webinars, case studies, web links etc.
Access to the School is free and participation is voluntary, and in no way linked to pre-qualification.
