Why are we involved in the School?

This project will be engaging with thousands of businesses – from sole traders and small businesses to medium-sized and large organisations – and so we’re keen to work with our suppliers and ensure that we are all speaking the same language, understand our sustainability priorities, and learn as we go.

Organisations of all sizes are signing up to the School so they can grow the skills and knowledge of their people, make more informed, sustainable and cost-effective decisions, operate more efficiently and sustainably, and become more competitive in today’s market. Because the e-learning modules correspond directly to our objectives, suppliers will be better placed to understand what these requirements mean to them and we will be in a better position to meet the environmental, economic and social goals of our projects.
