Why a Partner?
Our supply chain partners are the heart of what we do. We can only achieve our targets and ambitions by working together whilst ensuring that market leading / innovative technology is used.
We therefore must hold the same beliefs and share the same vision in terms of upskilling, carbon reduction and sustainability challenges. Our relationships are based on respect, trust and integrity, and the need to continuously improve in everything we do.
Align JV and the Supply Chain Sustainability School Partnership
Align JV’s Supply Chain is a crucial part of our business and becoming a member of the Supply Chain Sustainability School is a great way to enhance what we provide for our subcontractors and suppliers.
The Supply Chain Sustainability School allows us to upskill our supply chain, internal colleagues and meet our goal of being leaders in the construction of a sustainable future.
The many different learning tools the School provides, from workshops to e-learning modules ensure that learning is accessible to all and the key sustainability challenges within the industry are communicated across the supply chain.
We look forward to being an integral and active Partner of the School.
