Supply Chain Sustainability School
The Supply Chain Sustainability School is a free, virtual learning environment that aims to help construction suppliers and sub-contractors develop their sustainability knowledge and competence. It was designed to help address the challenges faced by the construction industry and to help the supply chain benefit from the many new opportunities that are emerging through sustainable business.
The School was founded by Skanska with support from Kier, Willmott Dixon, Lend Lease, Morgan Sindall, Sir Robert McAlpine, CEEQUAL and Aggregate Industries. Find out more at www.supplychainschool.co.uk.
UK Green Building Council
We are Gold Leaf Founding Members of the UK Green Building Council (UK-GBC). In May 2012 it published it's report 'A plan for growth in a resource-constrained world'.
It is called ‘A Plan for Growth’, for what would seem fairly obvious reasons, with the industry still suffering from the deepest recession in living memory. But this piece of work goes beyond the current economic climate and indeed beyond the built environment sector as it currently exists. It is a report that we are very pround to have been involved with.
We also contribute to the UK-GBC's Pinpoint tool, an independant, free to access online platform that has been created to share and promote sustainable resources.
Pinpoint has been designed with significant input from the sector. It provides a sustainability search function and allows users to apply further filters based on the part of the building lifecycle they are working on, the type of resources they are looking for and more.
