Bristol 2016 and the Sustainable Future
7.45am – 10.30am, Thursday 10th December 2015, The Engine Shed, Bristol
As Bristol's year as European Green Capital draws to a close, we look at the effect it has had - and will continue to have - on the city, its businesses and the wider economy. Through the eyes of some of those at the heart of the activities, we look at how some of the schemes and themes of Bristol 2015 will continue to develop in the coming years.
- Rachel Quinn, of Bristol 2015 partner Skanska, will be discussing their commitment to 'Deep Green' and how they are futureproofing their work; aiming for zero and near-zero impact in energy, carbon, materials and water
- Another supporter of Bristol’s year as European Green Capital, Burges Salmon‘s Liz Dunn will be talking about their commitment to a sustainable future
- European Green Capital Supporter Arup have been creating iconic projects in Bristol for over 40 years – hear Ann Cousins talk about their work in 2016 and beyond
- Amy Nicholass, Go Green - Set up to coincide with Bristol 2015, how will Go Green continue to engage businesses and improve sustainability in 2016 and beyond?
