There can be no doubt that the greatest issue of our current times is that of the climate crisis. Our Innovation & Sustainability Thought Leadership Theme Group is woking with others to address this problem to provide a guide to what that acutally means to the construction sector. The aim is to create a 'how to' guide for the various parts of the supply chain.

This inaugural half day conferrence will set the scene, offer best practice case studies currently available and agree the forward agenda for CESW. Anybody with an interest in the climate change agenda and who wishes to influence its future should attend this meeting from across the supply chain.
