IEMA – Skills & Sustainable Infrastructure Conference - FREE to attend
11th October, NEC Concourse Suites 1&2

The UK is within a new Golden Age of Infrastructure, with over half a trillion of investment in new and upgraded energy, rail, sewerage, flood risk management, aviation and road projects all being progressed. These projects will shape the infrastructure upon which our future sustainable (or unsustainable) economy and society is built, but they also have a huge potential to leave a legacy that significantly advances how we integrate environment and sustainability into all future development.

This conference will launch IEMA’s latest research report on the role sustainability skills are playing in enabling the ‘UK’s golden Age of Infrastructure’. The day will include presentations from industry leaders who are already actively pursuing the opportunities of embedding sustainability across infrastructure projects, consultancy skills, contractor operations and more.
