Find out how Anglian Water has used carbon reduction to drive capital and operational efficiencies over the last five years, and what savings the company is targeting next.
Join us for the first of two ‘low carbon master classes’ at the Royal Academy of Engineering, London, setting out the challenges overcome and opportunities realised at low carbon pioneer Anglian Water.
The government’s Infrastructure Carbon Review (ICR), published in November 2013, estimated that the UK infrastructure industry could realise efficiency savings worth £1.5bn by cutting its carbon emissions. Anglian Water carbon manager David Riley will explain how by offering insight into his company’s own low carbon journey.
Master class 1: leadership and skills
David Riley, carbon manager, Anglian Water
Mark Enzer, ICR lead author and practice manager for water, Mott MacDonald
Growing threats posed by climate change and population growth combined with regulatory pressure on costs and greenhouse gas legislation demanded action. David and Mark will explain how Anglian Water responded by promoting a new culture of carbon awareness, communicating the link between carbon reduction and commercial performance to the company’s directors, investors and staff. Hear how Anglian Water set out its low carbon vision, and achieved it by growing a low carbon skills set and incentivising innovation. Project examples will show how carbon and cost savings were advanced in ever greater leaps as confidence grew.
The master classes are aimed at influencers, decision makers and practitioners in all parts of the infrastructure industry – communications, power, transport and waste as well as water. Attend if you’re wondering how carbon reduction could benefit your business, how to get started, or how to accelerate the pace of change.
