Sustainability school for subbies and suppliers
Several major contractors have got together to support an initiative to promote sustainability among suppliers and subcontractors.
The Supply Chain Sustainability School has been set up by Skanska with support from Kier, Lend Lease, Morgan Sindall, Sir Robert McAlpine, Willmott Dixon and Aggregate Industries.
The aim is to promote common standards for sustainability across the industry, throughout the 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 offers online learning to help construction suppliers and subcontractors develop their sustainability knowledge and competence. It provides suppliers with practical and free support and a self-help assessment. It allows organisations to assess their current sustainability strengths, and to identify weak areas that need development.
Access to the school is free, and participation is voluntary and not linked to prequalification.
