About this event
The UK Government’s unprecedented commitment to invest in infrastructure must be matched with unprecedented changes in how that infrastructure is designed and delivered if it is to succeed and play part in a sustainable future.
In light of the UK Government’s pledge to ‘build back greener, build back better and build back quicker,’ we must challenge today’s practices and methods to ensure we design and deliver infrastructure solutions which will meet the needs of tomorrow.
In this Sustainability Delivery Group Expert Talk, Chris Sowerby, Head of Discipline for Sustainable Infrastructure at Jacobs, will define sustainable programme delivery and explore what it means for sustainability to be truly embedded and successful in maximising economic, social and environmental outcomes. Drawing on Jacobs' experience across a wide variety of major infrastructure projects and programmes in the transportation and utilities sectors, Chris will present examples and draw out the common factors which make sustainable programme delivery work.
