Your HS2 Learning Journey
Together with its major Main Works Civils and Station Contractors, HS2 has created a programme to improve sustainability skills and performance of the wider supply chain contributing to the UK’s largest infrastructure project.
The HS2 Supply Chain School initiative uses a collaborative approach to learning and competence linked to HS2 strategic objectives. It also rationalises the approaches used to manage and monitor complex supply chain sustainability performance.
“A really valuable resource to help develop our wider supply chain. The Supply Chain Sustainability School really does deliver and bringing HS2 and their capability together is inspired.”
Ruth Todd, Chief Commercial Officer, HS2

“At HS2 we recognise we are raising the bar on sustainability standards and expect our supply chain to step up.
