London Seminar on how to implement the new PAS2080 standard for building low-carbon infrastructure
A one-day seminar on how to implement the new ‘PAS2080’ standard for low-carbon infrastructure is being held in London, 14 November 2017.
PAS (Publicly Available Specification) 2080 is a new standard to encourage a consistent approach to the management of carbon by all involved in infrastructure. PAS2080 has been developed by the UK Government’s Construction Leadership Council and the Green Construction Board and sets out the principles and components of a carbon management system and requirements on the whole value chain.
It is the world’s first specification aimed at managing whole-life carbon in infrastructure.
The ‘Implementing PAS2080’ Seminar at London’s BEIS Conference Centre will focus on supply chain collaboration to reduce the carbon footprint and cost of major infrastructure projects.
The Seminar will hear first-hand from the authors of PAS2080 on how to work with clients, Tier 1 contractors and their supply chains to achieve reduced carbon emissions. PAS2080 certification providers will outline what is involved to achieve certification.
The Seminar will hear from major clients on the role of PAS2080 and also from companies who have implemented PAS2080 on the benefits and the practical steps to become PAS2080 certified. A number of breakout sessions will address key issues such as target setting, baselining, measurement and reporting.
The event is supported by Volvo Group and endorsed by the Construction Climate Challenge (CCC) and the Green Construction Board.
Present at the event will be major infrastructure clients, consultants, contractors and their supply chains including High Speed 2, Environment Agency, Skanska, Costain, Mott MacDonald and Arup.
REGISTRATION OPEN UNTIL 3 NOVEMBER
