The Green Building Institute has formed a partnership with the Supply Chain Sustainability School to share ideas, networks and educational resources.
The Supply Chain Sustainability School of Australia is a not-for-profit initiative that aims to create more sustainable supply chains for the property, construction and infrastructure industries in Australia. Launched in 2015, it is a free learning environment, upskilling those working within, or aspiring to work within, the built environment sector. They help to build a clever, collaborative and competitive built environment through increasing knowledge and competency of social, environmental and economic sustainability.
“We are pleased to be partnering with Supply Chain Sustainability School to provide expertise to technical committees or advisory boards, and to make our award-winning training platform and content available to the SSCS partners and students" said GBI Managing Director Daniel Wurm. "The transition to sustainability that our industry urgently needs can only be achieved by the sharing of knowledge by leaders.”
The School is a collaboration between clients, contractors and suppliers who have a mutual interest in building the skills of their supply chain. Since the School launched in 2015, it has grown steadily from just 8 founding Partners, 200 Members and 10 learning modules. Now, the School boasts 30 Partners, 1,684 Member companies, 2,698 registered users and there have been over 4,300 learning resource views.
