COP26 is Coming! How Project Managers Influence Sustainable Development?
With COP26 looming ever closer, the project management profession needs to accelerate developing our knowledge and skills to align our operations with our ambitions.
Arup Director Rob Leslie-Carter joins us to discuss the route to achieving net zero through programmes and projects, and how every project manager can influence sustainable development.
Rob Leslie-Carter, Director, Arup
Rob Leslie-Carter is a Director with Arup based in London. He has worked around the world with Arup for 28 years, and specialises in the planning, set-up, leadership and delivery of complex infrastructure and property projects both on client side and as leader of multidisciplinary teams.
Rob is a regular public speaker on leadership, project management, organisational culture, the future of work, and the road to Net Zero, and is a guest lecturer at the Bartlett at UCL and previously at University of New South Wales.
In 2018 Rob was lead author for 'Future of Project Management’ - a collaboration between the Association for Project Management, Arup, and the Bartlett School of Construction and Project Management. The future trends explored in FoPM continue to inspire significant research activities – including how the project management profession can respond to and influence achieving the UN Sustainable Development Goals and the UK’s Net Zero emissions targets.
