Supply Chain Sustainability School celebrates decade of success

The Supply Chain Sustainability School, an industry-wide collaboration of major companies to enable a sustainable built environment through sharing knowledge and resources, has celebrated its 10th anniversary. 

The milestone marks a decade which has seen significant growth - and acknowledges collaboration and innovation across the UK built environment industry. 

The school, which launched in June 2012 with only seven founding partners and 2,000 members, today has almost 180 partners and engages with more than 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.

Shaun McCarthy OBE, chair of the 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.”
