Scotland Group

Supporting clients, contractors and the supply chain in Scotland to deliver more sustainable projects; reduce carbon and waste, create social value and improve wellbeing.

Collaborating to enable a sustainable built environment in Scotland

The School’s Scotland Leadership Group is a dynamic group of School partners who are setting the strategy for our work in Scotland, to bring positive change across the sustainability agenda with the Scotland built environment supply chain.

Our activity will drive better performance but also grow the School’s membership in Scotland. We have a target of reaching 1,000 active individual members by end of March 2025 (2024 baseline = 750).

For 2024-2025, our Leadership Group have set a number of learning priorities. These will be reflected in our training programme as we deliver specific sessions for the supply chain in Scotland.

Priority 1: Reduce Carbon

  • Encourage greater adoption of EVs and promote HVO and Alternative Fuels to the supply base;
  • Share knowledge on latest product and material innovation;
  • Increase adoption and use of Carbon Reporting Tools to manage and control emissions.

Priority 2: Waste & Resource Efficiency

  • Deliver more training on circular economy and waste avoidance;
  • Promote the Scottish Government Circular Economy Routemap to our members;
  • Reduce waste from packaging in construction – especially single use plastic.

Priority 3: Social Value, FIR & Community Development

  • Share best practise from major contractors and their suppliers on generating maximum social value through project delivery;
  • Increase understanding of Fairness, Inclusion and Respect (FIR) in Scotland, and encourage new entrants from all backgrounds into the construction sector;
  • Collaborate with key stakeholders on a strategic approach to just transition.
