IN CONVERSATION WITH... NATIONAL HIGHWAYS
Join ACE for an exclusive member-only webinar exploring how a key public sector client is meeting national Net Zero commitments on Wednesday 18 May 2022 at 11.00 to 11.45am.
National Highways has created a new division focused on environmental sustainability. Headed by Stephen Elderkin, an environmental policy expert with a background in Government carbon policy, the new division will spearhead National Highways’ efforts in helping to meet ambitions for Net Zero by 2050.
The new division will work with all executive directors to raise the profile of environmental sustainability, build capacity and expertise, and develop a new green strategy which will be central to delivery of any future major road or motorway investment.
Stephen will present the new division’s work, how it will change how National Highways delivers new major roads while managing our existing infrastructure, how this impacts on procurement, as well as what it means for ACE members and the wider industry.
The member-only webinar will be conversational in style and chaired by Andy Bell (Ramboll and chair of ACE’s transport group). Attendees are encouraged to share any questions they might have for Stephen beforehand. The session will also provide an update on ACE’s policy activity.
