Working to build a sustainable Wales
In many ways, Wales can be seen as leading the charge towards a more sustainable future within the built environment. The Supply Chain Sustainability School hopes to help maintain this momentum by providing free training resources to help those in the sector build your skills and knowledge in the area of sustainability.
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.
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 School is in the process of developing new, up-to-date content for the Wales group but there is a lot going on behind the scenes.
The Group has been building a library of resources, developing learning and developing a knowledge assessment. We have organised events and showcases of work within Wales and will continue to do so.
The Group have to date published a number of case studies that were drawn from the Partners and supply chains of the Group. Explore the videos below focusing on the supply chain in Wales and the importance for organisations in implementing the Well-being of Future Generations Act.
