An industry initiative to promote sustainability in civil engineering launched this week.
The Supply Chain Sustainability School - run by a board chosen by contractor and client partners – now has an infrastructure stream as well as construction and facilities management.
Delivered by third party Action Sustainability, the infrastructure school aims to help suppliers score better on sustainability metrics.
Partners include Balfour Beatty, Carillion, HS2 Ltd and National Grid.
HS2 Ltd phase one construction procurement director Nigel McKay said: “The infrastructure industry will create a change in the market when we all align for a common goal.
“The Supply Chain Sustainability School is a perfect, proven solution which will drive that step change in delivery and become the ‘go to’ resource.
“It caters for all levels of learning and I would expect companies to have a long relationship with the school as they build their sustainability competency over time to demonstrate their worth to partners.”
