These will provide those engaged in Sustainability and Environmental arena with the opportunity not only to hear from experts on the BCO ESG Committee, but to play an active part in discussing and debating issues that will merit full attention in the new Guide. At the second of our Environment, Social & Governance Group (ESG) workshops, join speakers Simon Sturgis, Managing Partner of Sturgis Carbon Profiling, and Richard Boyd, Senior Engineer at Arup. The speakers will present the challenges around transitioning to a circular economy and discuss the importance of Embodied and Whole Life Carbon assessments within the commercial development industry. The presentations will be followed by a structured, interactive workshop where guests will be invited to discuss the two topics and share their thoughts on how the new BCO Guide update might reflect those important aspects.
