Supply Chain Sustainability School Celebrates 10th Anniversary

Today marks the 10th anniversary of the Supply Chain Sustainability School (the “School”), an industry-wide collaboration of major companies to enable a sustainable built environment through knowledge and collaboration.

The milestone marks a decade that has seen significant growth and acknowledges collaboration and innovation across the UK Built Environment Industry. The Supply Chain Sustainability School, which is delivered by Action Sustainability and launched in June 2012 with only 7 founding Partners and 2000 members, today has near 180 Partners and engage with over 50,000 members from 17,000 businesses.

In April 2022, the School was awarded the Queen’s Award for Enterprise in Sustainable Development in recognition of the significant environmental, social, and economic benefits it has delivered to its Members and Partners. In addition, the recently published 2022 Impact Report reflects how the School continues to positively impact organisations and supply chains, with 73% of School members reporting that the School has helped them to better understand their organisation’s sustainability impacts.

Reflecting on 10 years of progress, Shaun McCarthy OBE, Chair of Supply Chain Sustainability School said, “I take great pride in what we have accomplished over the last decade, and I want to thank all those who have accompanied us on our journey thus far – our longstanding Members and Partners, and our dedicated and talented employees. As we celebrate this important milestone, I am even more certain that we will reach our vision of an industry where everyone will have the skills and knowledge to deliver a sustainable future.”

Join the celebration! Sign up to become a FREE member of the School here, and follow Supply Chain Sustainability School on social media. A series of videos, including milestones and interviews with thought leaders amongst the built environment industry, will be released throughout 2022 to recognise achievements, and anticipate the exciting road ahead.
