Social Value and Sustainability Zone
As the UK strives to achieve net zero by 2050, sustainability will be a key feature of ongoing and future infrastructure projects.
Part of this will entail the building of new and cleaner forms of public transport, investing in renewable energy and developing improved waste management and water treatment facilities, but it will also require projects to factor in environmental obligations at all stages of the supply chain.
Social value is also playing an increasingly important role in the procurement process, be that in the form of employment and training opportunities, environmental aspects or helping new and small businesses to grow, all of which will be key to the UK’s infrastructure strategy.
The Sustainability and Social Value Zone at UKIS will host a series of training and knowledge sessions focusing on how infrastructure projects can help the UK achieve its environmental objectives, and how suppliers can bring social value into the process.
Agenda coming soon.
