Welcome to the Supply Chain Sustainability School

What is the Supply Chain Sustainability School?

Launched in 2012, the Supply Chain Sustainability School is a FREE virtual learning platform around sustainability, with the aim to upskill those working within, or aspiring to work within, the built environment sector.

Our learning covers the three core pillars of Sustainability – environmental, social and economic – looking at key issues ranging from carbon management through to combatting modern slavery. But that isn’t all. We also offer training on key topics that will enable the industry to be more sustainable, including:

  • Offsite
  • Digital
  • Energy and Carbon
  • Management
  • Operational Excellence through Lean Thinking
  • Fairness Inclusion and Respect
  • Procurement

Membership is FREE and signing up is easy. Membership gives access to hundreds of engaging learning resources and CPD-accredited content.

Who is the School for?

Individual Learning

The School is accessible to anyone working in the built environment or aspiring to work in the sector.

Our overall vision is for “an industry where everyone will have the skills and knowledge to deliver a sustainable future.”

It is clear that Sustainability has become a vital topic for everyone working in our sector to incorporate into business and the School recognises that for our industry to act, learning must drive any change.

The School offers training and resources shaped by industry Partners and sector needs, which helps businesses prepare for upcoming challenges, respond to client requests and upskill their staff and supply chains.
