Aimed at those who seek to deliver a functional, flexible, safe, healthy, and sustainable built environment, the conference will be packed with audience polls, Q&A sessions and a host of speakers and panel members from across the built environment and contain vital insights for any organisation seeking to contribute.

Keith Chanter, Chief Executive Officer, EMCOR UK will address placing “purpose” at the heart of strategy, focusing on the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals and how we can all contribute to their delivery.

Catriona Brady, Director of Strategy and Development, World Green Building Council will consider the challenge of transforming health and wellbeing in the built environment.

James Cadman, Lead Consultant at Action Sustainability will suggest why and how we can go about saving the low carbon gains achieved during lockdown.

Rory Murphy, Commercial Director, VINCI Facilities will examine how we mainstream a social value-based business model as we build back – a critical topic for any organisation and particularly in the light of recent changes in client expectations for those supplying the Public Sector.

The event rounds off with a plenary session chaired by Shaun McCarthy OBE, Chair of the Supply Chain Sustainability School. Panellists will answer questions on how the FM sector plan to deliver a successful and sustainable built environment in the face of unprecedented levels of uncertainty, including; current and post-pandemic conditions, the skills gap and more.
