Supply Chain Sustainability School Elects New Board Members

Industry & Regulatory News, Company News, EMEA
Appointments to the Board of any industry-wide organisation are important, especially when potential candidates are answerable to thousands of member organisations and individuals.


With almost 3,000 Member Companies, 5,000 Individual Members and over 30,000 Registered Users, the Supply Chain Sustainability School has announced the election by its 77-strong roster of Partners of three new School Board members.


The additions are Director Re-Thinking (Group Sustainability) at Willmott Dixon, Julia Barrett; Head of Sustainability at Canary Wharf Group, Martin Gettings and Head of Sustainability at VINCI Facilities, Victoria Hughes.


The role of the Board is vital to the School’s representative mandate – not only reflecting the industry-leading influence of the Partners, but also the many and varied interests of the wider construction community of Members and Users. The Board is responsible for fiscal governance and setting strategic direction for the School. Its independent Chair is Shaun McCarthy OBE.


Selected from companies operating across the built environment sector (construction, property and facilities management), the new Members strengthen the expertise and diversity of the Board.


Discussing the appointments, Chair of the Supply Chain Sustainability School, Shaun McCarthy OBE, said:

“The election of Members to the Board is always a tough process, given the number and calibre of nominees. I am delighted to welcome the new additions and deeply grateful to all the candidates – every one of whom has already brought so much to the School and will undoubtedly continue to make valuable individual and collective contributions.

“At times of political uncertainty and market instability, the sustainability of the built environment is critical in helping future-proof our health, wealth, wellbeing and welfare. World-class leadership on matters of economics, environment and social equity is therefore more important than ever.”
