An update on global sustainability mega trends and the opportunities for WA

Boardroom Briefing

In light of the Western Australian Government’s plans to legislate its commitment to achieving net zero emissions by 2050, we invite you to our Boardroom Briefing, which will be an insightful discussion to explore the challenges and opportunities Western Australia faces in its journey to greater sustainability.

David Symons, WSP’s Director of Sustainability (UK) and Global Future Ready Innovation Leader will join us for this boardroom-style luncheon and share insights from his work in the UK, including:

  • Developing the ‘net zero highways‘ plan for the UK’s National Highways and current work implementing the plan.
  • Creating Carbon Management Plans to support carbon reduction through the project life cycle.
  • Working with large global corporations to achieve their commitments to be a net zero business.

We look forward to seeing you at the event.
