From the Supply Chain Sustainability School:
As the property and construction industry tackles an ever-expanding host of sustainability issues, Australia’s Supply Chain Sustainability School has chalked up its 1,000th member.
Launched in March 2015, the School was established to increase sustainability knowledge and competency along the construction and infrastructure supply chains, and has grown steadily since.
“In our fast-paced and dynamic industry, continuous improvement is an essential ingredient of a successful project – and a successful career,” says the School’s Chief Executive Officer, Robin Mellon.
“We are excited to have passed the milestone of 1,000 members – each of whom is accessing free learning resources and attending our free events around the country.
“The School now has more than 300 free online resources to help people in our industry to skill up, stay relevant and gain insights into many of the hot button topics transforming the industry.”
In-demand topics include how to prepare for Australia’s incoming Modern Slavery Act and how the new IS020400 guidance standard will influence sustainable procurement.
“Our research has identified the industry’s main skills gaps are around social sustainability, energy, water, waste, materials and sustainable procurement. The School can help plug those gaps,” Mr Mellon adds.
The School is funded and supported by 14 partner organisations across the private, public and not-for-profit sectors.
