Mott MacDonald will be an Industry Partner of the Climate Action Event, Sustainable Innovation Forum (SIF) 2021.
SIF is a collaborative platform for uniting heads of state and multilaterals, environment ministers, business leaders, investors and non-governmental organisations enabling climate action at COP26.
It is the largest multi-stakeholder forum alongside COP26 broadcasting live from Glasgow 8th – 10th November to a global platform.
The 12th edition takes place alongside COP26 in Glasgow with a fully programmed hybrid event creating a virtual window into COP26, connecting physical and digital realities, and providing a global platform for people to engage alongside the most important climate meeting of the generation. The role of non-state actors in the transition to net zero is critical.
Mott MacDonald will be speaking at three events. Executive director of external engagement, Denise Bower will deliver Mott MacDonald’s keynote speech 'The climate transition: we work as one or fail apart' on Tuesday 9 November at 15.45 GMT on the Transition Stage. Global practice leader for cities Clare Wildfire will take part in a panel discussion the same day discussing system solutions for climate-resilient cities at 15.55 GMT. On Wednesday 10 November on the Global Action Stage, Cathy Travers, managing director UK & Europe, will be involved alongside Heather Rigby, group sustainability advisor in an exclusive Climate Leaders Live interview at 12.45 GMT, answering questions about what we are doing to tackle the climate emergency. Then executive chair Mike Haigh will be leading the Panel Discussion ‘Transforming infrastructure to achieve our climate ambition’ at 12.55 GMT followed by a global video call to action.

Mike Haigh, Mott MacDonald’s executive chair, said:
“We look forward to bringing our global expertise to the Sustainable Innovation Forum at COP26. Every new project that’s undertaken today must be aligned with a net-zero future and be resilient to the physical impacts of climate change. But we must see projects in context – recognising that our buildings and infrastructure assets are parts of much larger systems that have people and nature at their core, and which have often evolved over decades if not centuries. These entire systems must become net-zero and resilient too.”
