Sustainability has been likened to the next industrial revolution and needs to be delivered harder and faster than digital transformation. Although sustainability might be something that individuals consider at home, sustainability is being discussed more readily within organisations – but what does that mean for project professionals? In this interactive session we will break down sustainability and share our experience of what it means for project professionals. This event was held on 21 September 2023.

With the impacts of climate change becoming more prevalent to the everyday person, aggressive net zero targets being set and social value becoming increasingly important for organisations the focus on sustainability has changed and will continue to change.

Although the topic of sustainability might be understood at home, when people come to work people can be confused on what they should do when they come into the workplace.

We hope you can join this interactive session to learn more about:

  • What sustainability is (climate change and social value)
  • How these trends impacting projects
  • What project managers can do now
