Mark and Natasha will be joined on the webinar by Paul Burcombe of The Asset Management Academy, Paul will deliver a seminar around sustainable asset management, what is asset management and what isn’t, and explore why a company would undertake an asset management model.
Greener Highways: Who we are…
As part of a huge highways community, Greener Highways sees the environmental impact of the sectors business activities and realise that companies need to address increasingly serious environmental problems such as climate change, resource depletion, carbon footprints, and pollution.
Greener Highways aims to aid with the education and implementation of sustainable initiatives, products, services and operations across the highways sector. In order to achieve this, Greener Highways will showcase the contributions of its members towards a cleaner, greener future. Greener Highways aims to tackle the climate emergency together by looking at areas such as energy, transport, wildlife and waste, with further aim to build best practice relationships between businesses to encourage faster changes towards long-term sustainability.
The road ahead…
Throughout 2023, GH members will have access to a wide range of digital content and training/CPD opportunities including videos and webinars. These resources will cover a wide range of topics, from understanding the basics of sustainability and environmental stewardship, to exploring the latest trends in social entrepreneurship and community development.
At the heart of the programme is a focus on action and impact. Throughout the year, members will be engaged in taking further concrete steps to reduce their environmental impact, support local communities, and deliver social value.
In addition to the digital content and training materials, participants will also have access to a community of like-minded individuals and organisations. This will include regular virtual meetups, where participants can share their experiences and learn from one another, as well as a private online forum where participants can share resources and collaborate on projects.
