Invitation to the School’s annual resource topics review

Published 25th Sep 19 - by Hayley Jarick

This November the Supply Chain Sustainability School will hold its annual review of our environmental resources in collaboration with our Partners. We are encouraging organisations to participate and showcase how their policies, practices, projects, publications, products and services align with our environmental resources. Partners will be invited to participate in surveys and workshops as part of the review.

Currently, the School covers all aspects of the built environment and categorises each resource into four topic areas:

  1. Social

  3. Economic
  4. Process

Environmental subtopics include:

  • Environmental management,
  • Materials,
  • Biodiversity,
  • Waste,

  • Climate change adaptation & resilience.

Potential new subtopics may include

  • Ecology,
  • Energy efficiency,
  • Energy production & renewables,
  • Environmental regulation,
