Founded in 2012, the Supply Chain Sustainability School was born just as the sector started to understand that the growing demand for sustainability cannot be met effectively without significantly upskilling the supply chain. Given the size and complexity of the sector’s supply chain, this must be done in collaboration.
Starting with 7 founding partners and £350K funding from CITB, our objective was to reach 600 learners through our virtual learning platform. We achieved 2,000+ new learners in the first year.
Today, we have 125 partners and engage with over 50,000 members from over 15,000 businesses. The scope of CPD accredited learning has expanded over the years to incorporate skills for offsite construction, digital, management, procurement, heritage and lean construction.
Our vision is to be the world class collaboration to enable a sustainable built environment. This means much more than training. It is about leadership. With a critical mass of tier 1 contractors, clients, suppliers and specialist sub-contractors there is an opportunity to change our industry for the better.
Working with Partners, academics, and industry bodies, the School has led pioneering work to set new standards in climate change, modern slavery, social value, fairness, inclusion and respect, waste and circular economy, ethical employment standards, air quality, wellbeing, procurement, offsite construction and much more.
We are proud to deliver global best practice in sustainable supply chain management.
