How Social Value & Localism Can Support the Climate Emergency; Sponsored by Morgan Sindall

Wednesday, 7th October 2020 1145hrs – 1330hrs

We’re currently living in unprecedented times, with the safety of those around us and disruption to our day to day lives front of mind.

However, it is important that where possible we continue to focus on the projects and issues that are important to us and the world we live in. Historically one of the key drivers of the success of construction projects has been the return on investment for its backers, but there is now an increased awareness of the importance of the wider impact of a project upon society.

As a result, accountability of decision makers within the project team is broadened and enhanced by a wider appreciation of the value of the project with regards to financial impacts, as well as social, economic and environmental.

Today, over 400 local government bodies have declared a climate emergency. Morgan Sindall Construction believes the best way to achieve the reduction of carbon emissions while also bringing economic benefits to society throughout the country is through localism – and this webinar will discuss the importance of this and how to deliver this successfully…

Speakers for this event include:

Louise Townsend,
Head of Social Value and Sustainability
Damon Brown,
Portfolio Construction Manager
Shabnam Ali,
Service Lead for Economic Development
  • Morgan Sindall – our webinar partner will explore the increasing importance of localism and how putting it at the heart of the decision making can play a key role in the fight back against the climate emergency whilst simultaneously helping to build robust local economies and strong communities.
  • Legal & General Capital – the firm are working across the UK to investment in ‘Future Cities’ with some major investments totalling billions of pounds. One of their key focuses is place and green infrastructure/sustainable development and Damon will be able to share his expertise on how the organisation are approaching this.
  • Slough Borough Council – the Council are working closely with developers and the supply chain to transform the town centre through a £3bn regeneration whilst over 1,300 new homes are being developed each year in Slough – and Shabnam will highlight their approach to ensuring inclusivity, sustainability and localism is at the heart of their projects.
