This webinar, organised by the FIDIC Sustainable Development Committee, will look at the pivotal role of the infrastructure industry in achieving a net zero world. It is clear that without drastic international action today, adapting to the impacts of climate change in the future will be more difficult and costly. The construction and infrastructure sector has a crucial role to play in the fight against climate change and without its active engagement the battle cannot be won. Internationally, where less wealthy nations will need extra help and innovation to reduce their dependence on fossil fuels, the ingenuity and expertise of construction professionals will be pivotal. As the world approaches the international COP26 conference, this webinar will look at the international battle to combat climate change and the crucial role of the construction and infrastructure sector in that.
FIDIC committee webinar series
The relaunch of FIDIC’s revitalised committee structure last year means that FIDIC is now much better placed to make a positive impact on and widen its influence in the global infrastructure industry. To highlight some of the key areas being covered by the work of these committees, a series of nine webinars has been organised across a range of industry key issues including communications, diversity and inclusion, the use of FIDIC contracts in emerging countries, combating corruption, quality, net zero and best business practice in a post-Covid world. These webinars are free to attend and open to all and they are expected to be well attended by global industry professionals. Details of the FIDIC committee webinar series are linked below.
