Accelerating progress towards Net Zero bridges

The context and need for urgent change will be familiar, and a blizzard of Net Zero initiatives has now emerged. But what does it mean for bridge clients, designers, contractors and the wider supply chain? What should be our priorities, and what can we do that is practical, relevant, effective, and immediate? The Net Zero Bridges Group was formed to encourage collaboration and work more rapidly towards change. This keynote presentation will highlight key things that you can be doing so that we all accelerate progress towards Net Zero bridges.
