Hosted during edie’s special Sustainable Development Goals week, the Sustainable Development Action Sessions offer up an afternoon of live, interactive webinar presentations and discussions – all dedicated to giving businesses the tools, insights and knowledge to maximise their contribution to the Global Goals.
This online event will see a selection of business leaders and sustainable development experts share their learnings and discuss some of the biggest drivers, challenges and opportunities when it comes to accelerating momentum to achieve the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by 2030, both in the UK and globally. The sessions will also exclusively reveal the findings of edie’s recent SDG Survey of business and sustainability leaders.
Taking place on 21 September from 12:30 BST this online event combines three edie sessions into a single afternoon. IES is proud to be contributing to the case study session: 7 years left: 7 case studies to accelerate business action on the Global Goals (Part 2), focused around the themes of energy, cities, industry and innovation, which will be live between 13:45-14:45 BST. During the session, Ian Pyburn, Business Development Manager at IES will be sharing recent project examples to demonstrate how the built environment can respond to a number of Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), with particular focus on SDG 7 – Affordable & Clean Energy, SDG 11 – Sustainable Cities & Communities and SDG 13 – Climate Action.
