Our Story

The School was launched in 2012 by our seven founding partners, with funding from CITB and delivered by Action Sustainability. The School’s aim is to provide innovative learning content, FREE for anybody who works, or aspires to work, in the built environment industry.

Our Vision and Values

Since 2012, the School has led pioneering work to set new standards in climate change, modern slavery, social value, fairness, inclusion, and respect and much more. In 2013, the School was recognised as the Best Sustainability Initiative and Overall Winner at the CIPS Supply Management Awards. In 2017, Partners from the School helped develop the Sustainability Tool (link here) to support businesses and their supply chains to understand the true impact of their operations.  

In 2020, COVID-19 forced us to convert our training delivery to a virtual environment. Despite this, the School continued to thrive and now runs over three virtual training sessions a week, from interactive workshops to multi-speaker panel discussions.  

In 2022, the School celebrated our 10th anniversary and received a Queen’s Award for Enterprise in Sustainable Development, in recognition of the significant environmental, social and economic benefits we have delivered to our Members and Partners.
