Saint-Gobain continues education partnership with UK-GBC

Published:  18 November, 2016

Saint-Gobain UK and Ireland has teamed up with UK-GBC for its Learning and Development Programme. The partnership, which began in October, will continue throughout the rest of 2016 and into 2017.

Saint-Gobain and UK-GBC are working closely as part of the partnership to provide information and skills necessary for built environment professionals, sustainability leaders and businesses to grow their understanding of sustainable building.

Shenaaz Chenia, director of industry and community training for Saint-Gobain UK and Ireland, said: “The programme offers a broad range of skills to widen the industry’s understanding of the impact that creating sustainable buildings can have on the environment and the occupants.

“Partnering with UK-GBC is a great fit for us, as its goals to encourage and grow thought leadership on sustainability in the built environment, as well as the emphasis on comfort, health and wellbeing, perfectly match our vision for the industry.”

The next course in 2016 is ‘Integrated Planning: Creating Sustainable Communities’, which will take place on Wednesday 30 November. Find out more and register at the UK-GBC website.
