What are Supplier Days?

The Supply Chain Sustainability School hosts a series of Supplier Days across the country, where you will hear directly from the School's partners on why they are involved and most importantly what’s in it for you! 

They provide an opportunity to learn about what the School is, how it can benefit your business, and what the future challenges are for the sector. They also offer networking opportunities with existing and future clients, as well as with other like-minded suppliers. 

How much do they cost?
The events are free to attend thanks to funding from CITB and our Partners.

Who should attend?
If you haven't attended a School event before and want to know more about what it is and how it works, a Supplier Day is for you! We encourage MDs, procurement staff, QSHE managers, business development managers and sustainability managers to attend. We just ask that you do not bring along more than 2 representatives from each organisation, as events fill up quite quickly.

What previous attendees have said about Supplier days:
“The event was great and really helped highlight the senior level commitment of the School’s main contractor partners. We look forward to hearing more about the School’s developments over the coming year! Sustainability is overwhelming at first – but completing a self -assessment online has provided me with targeted information and goals for our company in manageable ‘bitesize’ chunks”. Sarah Hayes, Aqua Interiors

What's the difference between a Supplier Day and a Training Workshop?

Supplier days are awareness raising events. Each Supplier Day follows a similar format, so if you've already attended one, you may hear similar presentations at another. They aim to raise awareness of the School and are targeted at companies or people who are not yet registered members. 

Training Workshops are free, half-day sessions which focus on specific sustainability issues such as ethical business, embedding sustainable procurement, selling your sustainability credentials, responsible sourcing etc. You need to be an active member of the School in order to register for a workshop.

Workshops and Supplier days take place regularly throughout the country - if you would like us to come to your region, contact us!
