About this event
Investment in sustainable infrastructure provides an opportunity to support green and inclusive communities. It is hard to find anyone to disagree with the principle that infrastructure should work for everyone, and that care should be taken to maximise social impacts and reduce harms.
But how does this work in practice?
This Sustainability Delivery Group Expert Talk will outline the frameworks, tools, incentives, innovations that are effective in making sustainable infrastructure work for and with communities.
