With COP26 looming ever closer, the project management profession needs to accelerate developing our knowledge and skills to align our operations with our ambitions. This webinar was held on 4 May 2021.

Arup Director Rob Leslie-Carter joined us to discuss the route to achieving net zero through programmes and projects, and how every project manager can influence sustainable development.

Rob has very kindly allowed his presented material to be made available for viewing.
The slides on Slideshare and the webinar recording on YouTube is now available in our APM resources area and also embedded below for reference.

The Poll results can be found here.

Questions raised during the recording will be reviewed and published with the speaker responses in the near future.
