Specialist services in construction and building services, BSRIA, has been awarded the ‘bronze’ status within the UK Supply Chain Sustainability School
The Homes School within the Supply Chain Sustainability School has been founded by ten partners – the UK’s top residential builders and trade organisations – who have joined forces to create a wide-ranging, free at the point of use learning resource for the homes sector, covering the three pillars of sustainability – social, economic and environmental.
The School is backed and funded by the UK’s top housebuilders, contractors and clients and was created to help the UK supply chain meet the targets set out by government regarding housebuilding: delivering half a million new homes by 2022, with improved levels of efficiency, quality and sustainability.
The School runs a series of workshops which is working to produce a ‘best in class UK supply chain’ across a number of sectors via their online learning platform.
Chris Knights, Compliance Manager, BSRIA, said: “BSRIA is delighted to have been awarded bronze status for this scheme which is a growing scheme attracting national recognition. Naturally, we will be continuing our journey with the School and progressing to silver status in the near future.
“Sustainability across all platforms is a key feature for working practices – not only within the Compliance Department – but for BSRIA as a company. Indeed: the pillars of social, economic and environmental policy are values at the heart of all BSRIA’s work.”
