More support for sustainability school

18 Jun 13 Balfour Beatty and Wates have added their weight to construction’s Supply Chain Sustainability School.

They join Skanska, the original founder, along with, Kier, Lend Lease, Morgan Sindall, Sir Robert McAlpine, Willmott Dixon and Aggregate Industries, who were already backing the project.

In its first year, the Supply Chain Sustainability School gained 2,400 registered members, exceeding the original target of 800. Members come from more than 1,300 companies that want to improve their sustainability credentials.

Launched in June 2012, the Supply Chain Sustainability School is a ‘virtual learning environment’ that aims to help construction suppliers and subcontractors develop their sustainability knowledge and competence.

The project is run by environmental consultant Action Sustainability and has been backed by the CITB Growth Fund.
