This session will look at how best we can deliver a green recovery and achieve net zero in the context of a post-pandemic world. Some key questions to consider include: -

  • Where does this pandemic and its economic aftershocks leave the green infrastructure agenda and the sustainable development goals (SDGs)?
  • How does the industry best argue for a sustainable approach in difficult economic times?
  • How can we ensure that economic stimulus packages being devised by governments around the world are climate aware, so that the increase in emissions that was seen following the 2008 global financial crisis is not repeated?
  • How can we use this unprecedented period to accelerate the transition to a zero-carbon economy?
  • Does the global threat posed by the pandemic increase the prospects of concerted global action on climate change?
  • Is green infrastructure likely to become more popular?
  • Is there an opportunity to reframe the debate around this crucial issue?
  • What is FIDIC’s role in communicating best practice in this area?
