Australia’s Supply Chain Sustainability School has launched today.
The School is an online creation by Australian construction and infrastructure industry leaders to increase sustainability knowledge and competency across the supply chain. The School is an online self-assessment tool for businesses, e-learning modules and a resource library designed to provide information on topics such as waste, water, environmental management, climate adaptation and carbon and energy.
According to it’s press release, the Australian School was inspired by the success of the UK’s Supply Chain Sustainability School and has been launched by its eight founding partners–John Holland, Mirvac, Stockland, Downer Tenix, McConnell Dowell, Infrastructure Sustainability Council of Australia, DuluxGroup and Laing O’Rourke. There is also additional funding and support being provided through the NSW Government and government body Sustainability Victoria, as well as from Construction Skills Queensland.
Renuka Sabaratnam, Co-Chair for the School stated in its press release, that the School has been set up in Australia to provide training and other resources to ensure that the supply chain has a common understanding of best industry practice.
Roderick Petre, fellow Co-Chair for the School and Mirvac’s Procurement Manager stated in its press release, that the founding partners are encouraging their supply chains to engage with the School to benefit from training and the wide range of free resources available from it.
The School are specifically inviting industry suppliers, contractors, suppliers and service providers from small-to-medium sized enterprises to complete the online training for a better understanding of sustainability standards for the industry.
