Free retrofit learning platform for construction industry
NatWest, a Co2nstruct Zero Business Partner, has partnered with The Supply Chain Sustainability School to provide a free retrofit learning platform for the construction industry. The aim of the platform is to build capability and capacity to accelerate retrofitting of UK buildings to make them more energy efficient.
The sustainability platform will offer free training to 80,000 registered users, covering retrofit as well as 17 key sustainability topics including energy & carbon, waste & circular economy and more. This is an incredible achievement for NatWest. As I’m sure you will agree, retrofit plays a critical role in achieving Net Zero.
There will be a Launch Event which you can register for here by signing up to a free account on the Supply Chain Sustainability School. Please do share this opportunity across your business areas, Laura Capper from NatWest will join us at the October Business Champion and Partner forum, to discuss the partnership and webinar event in more detail.

James Close, Head of Climate Change at NatWest Group commented: “As one of the largest lenders in the UK, we have a key role to play in supporting consumers and businesses in transitioning to more energy efficient homes and buildings that are warmer, cheaper to heat, and generate lower emissions. Decarbonising properties will require retrofitting existing buildings to increase their energy efficiency, constructing new energy efficient buildings and decarbonisation of electricity and heating supply. We want to work at scale to increase demand. But we need the skills and companies to carry out the work and we also want to make it as easy for our customers to retrofit as possible. Our collaboration with the Supply Chain Sustainability School will help cultivate a more mature retrofit supply chain, share knowledge and build the skills needed to retrofit homes and buildings across the UK.”
