Supply Chain Sustainability School

How the Supply Chain Sustainability School is expanding into the facilities management and services sector.


Carillion has been a funding partner of the Supply Chain Sustainability School since 2013. This award-winning, online learning facility provides free training and action plans for suppliers across the built environment, and nearly 1,000 of our suppliers are members. Senior members of our supply chain teams serve on its various specialist groups and David Picton, our Chief Sustainability Officer, is a Board Director of the School. David also chaired the launch programme to expand the school’s coverage in 2015 into the FM and Services sector. The School is an entirely voluntary initiative, free to all suppliers, and designed simply to help them increase their sustainability skills across the full built environment

“Carillion is standing shoulder to shoulder with other major industry partners – contributing funds, helping to create content and leadership governance to grow sustainability skills. If we are to develop and maintain tomorrow’s buildings and infrastructure, we must act today to ensure the next generation of tradespeople are suitably skilled, prepared and conscious of their impacts.”
