  • Tackling the climate emergency will be a defining challenge of our generation. The construction industry accounts for 40% of carbon emissions globally and has a critical role to play in the transition to a Net Zero carbon economy.  Ireland is now on a legally binding path to net-Zero emissions no later than 2050, and to a 51% reduction in emissions by the end of this decade. Addressing the climate crisis requires a long-term commitment to change and practical action, rather than words.

    Turner & Townsend are carbon neutral and have set a target to become net zero by 2030. We are supporting our clients across the globe to turn over a new leaf for a greener, sustainable, more inclusive and productive world.

    We would like to share with you our experience and expertise on how to embed sustainability in your procurements and our presentation will include:-

    • Set the scene – a high level overview of the legislative framework and key definitions;
    • Outline why you should consider embedding sustainability in your procurements; and
    • Provide practical examples of how to do it.
