Ingots:Layout 1School Supply Chain Sustainability

Of the 436 registered M&E companies only 6 have Bronze, Fire Defence Servicing Ltd with 19 others have Silver and nobody so far has Gold.

17 of the UK’s top contractors are now Partners to the School and are recommending the School as the ‘go to’ sustainability resource for their supply chains.

Launched in 2012, the School is a multi award winning initiative which represents a common approach to addressing sustainability within our supply chains. With more than 6,000 members, the School provides free practical support in the form of e-learning modules, tailored self-assessment and action plans, sustainability training and networking opportunities. The School’s most active suppliers are rewarded through a Bronze, Silver and Gold badging system.

The School is being delivered by an independent third party, Action Sustainability, so you can trust that the information you provide will remain confidential. This commitment is enshrined in our Code of Ethics, signed by all the School’s partners.

Ingots:Layout 1The Supply Chain Sustainability School – Why?

Sustainability represents both significant challenges, and opportunities for the UK construction industry. Clients are demanding more sustainable practices; legislation is becoming increasingly stringent, and the UK Construction Strategy calls for a 50% reduction in emissions, 33% reduction in cost and for buildings to be built in half the time by 2025.

The market for a greener, ethical and more sustainable construction sector is greater than ever. As an industry we need to embrace the sustainability agenda, or simply risk losing out to our competitors.

The School represents a common approach to developing sustainability competence in the supply chain. It is a free resource available to any supplier in the construction industry, and is part of our continued commitment to lead the industry into a brighter, more sustainable future.
