Why combatting the climate emergency is more than just Net Zero
The race to achieve Net Zero is on. Yet as this singular goal becomes mainstream, there must be a more considered shift from Net Zero towards broader climate resilience.
Waterman, Skanska and M&G Real Estate shed light on why there’s more to climate resilience than just meeting Net Zero targets in an up-coming online event.
Brought to you by Built Environment Networking (BEN), the free online event promises to take a fascinating look at how best to embed climate resilience to mitigate the impacts of future policies and technologies, align business models with the new Net Zero economy and ensure existing infrastructure and assets are resilient to the impacts of climate change.
Waterman’s Director for Infrastructure and Environment, Anna Bacon, and Regional Director for the Midlands, Ruth Jeffs, will be joined by climate change and social impact specialist, Terri Wills, in addition to Nina Reid, Head of Responsible Property Investment for M&G and Skanska’s Environment Technical Director, David Mason. Together, they’ll cut through the noise on net zero and explain why there’s more to combating the climate emergency than just meeting net zero targets.
Our expert panel will examine key parts of the construction lifecycle: why and how investors are driving the profile of climate resilience (including Net Zero); the increasingly important role engineers and designers play in delivering a truly sustainable society; and how contractors are moving beyond compliance on climate change to deliver sustainable development in practice.
