Working to build a sustainable Wales
The Supply Chain Sustainability School in Wales has been created to provide support to the construction industry by providing free training resources to help you build your skills and knowledge in the area of sustainability.
Wales is leading the drive to a more sustainable future, no more so than in the construction sector. “What Wales is doing today, the rest of the world is doing tomorrow”. A key driver in Wales is to ensure that projects are delivered in a way that enhances the environment, creates new jobs and
apprenticeships and benefits local communities through new investment.
The Welsh construction sector has significant legislation and policy drivers that shape our sustainability priorities in the buildings and infrastructure that we build and maintain.
