Tuesday 25th October 2022, Arup London Office, 08h00* - 10h30 BST
Our third breakfast ‘Question Time’ panel discussion on 'Building a sustainable future' - how ESG Strategies need to be resilient and resistant.
Organisations need to manifest their commitment to environmental and social change in many ways. Their physical presence is often a clear indicator to the real commitment and priority they place to a values led strategy. Our hosts for this discussion, Arup, are deeply involved in projects that need to be sustainable across multiple dimensions - materials sourcing, carbon cost, longevity of use, environmental impact and societal benefit. Many take years to plan and realise so environmental and social criteria are embedded in for the long-term.
What can long-term planning teach those of us working outside the built environment?
How can we take these principles and apply them in our own markets?
How can lessons be learnt and longer term thinking be baked into the environmental and social programmes of organisations with a traditionally shorter-term sight-line?
These are just some of the themes our panel and invited guests will discuss together on the 25th October.
Our high-level panel will include individuals who each bring a different perspective to this debate, the following have confirmed their participation:
Professor Simon Pringle (Panel Chairman), University of Edinburgh Business School
Sam Stacey, ISCF Challenge Director for Transforming Construction, UK Research and Innovation
Steven Lloyd, ESG & Sustainable Investment Leader, Arup
