Focusing the conversation on Building Sustainability

Building Sustainability

Tarmac hosting online event in March aimed at influencing mindsets to help achieve Net Zero

SUSTAINABILITY is the key to a better future. It is no longer possible to escape the conversation; the time for action on carbon-cutting targets is a reality, say Tarmac. Next month, the company will be focusing this conversation on what can be done right now to impact collective ambitions during an online seminar event aimed at influencing mindsets in construction and infrastructure to help achieve Net Zero.

Taking place on Wednesday 30 March 2022, from 9.30–13.30, Tarmac’s ‘Building Sustainability’ event will demonstrate new approaches to procurement across the supply chain and discuss the implementation of innovative materials, processes, and strategies that will drive the sector forward towards Net Zero.

The session will consist of four panel discussions covering the impact of green procurement, preparing specifications for sustainable innovation, accelerating the innovation process, and collaborative partnerships – playing to strengths, driving sustainable results for TfL. Each of these will be followed by a live question and answer session. Panellists from Tarmac will include head of sustainability Emma Hines; technical director Brian Kent; and Dave Markham, senior manager, aggregates and asphalt technology.

Guest panellists will include Martin Duffy, chief executive officer, LCRIG; Matt Wayman, senior pavements advisor, National Highways; Alan Ferguson, materials advisor, Transport Scotland; Matt Eglinton, head of local highways maintenance, innovation, and resilience, DfT; Ian Large, performance manager, highways and traffic, Blackpool Council; James Burdell, technical director, AECOM; Ian Walsh, Adept; and Daniel Lem, head of category management, procurement, National Highways.

In addition, Total Energies’ Rick Ashton, chairman of the Pennine IAT, will provide review of the latest Asphalt Industry Alliance ALARM Survey report, which now includes sustainability-focused insights. There will also be a series of 10min ‘innovation specials’ from local authorities and London boroughs. To register for the event, click here.
