Bryan Harvey, Vice President and Head of Global Program Management at Jacobs, will deliver a keynote presentation at KHL’s inaugural Construction Sustainability Summit 2022, which is being held on September 13, 3.00pm UK time.
The virtual event, which will be held during World Green Building Week, aims to describe and promote construction practices that could drive down carbon emissions and reduce waste in the industry.
Harvey has nearly three decades of multi-sector experience in solving some of the world’s greatest construction challenges, and brings unique insight into major infrastructure delivery, funding opportunities and risk management.
He is an advocate for future infrastructure delivery models that focus collaborative effort on balancing the needs of society, with the challenges of climate change, urbanisation and population growth. His global portfolio of projects, programs and delivery partner services covers all sectors of infrastructure including water, rail, highways, events, built environment and aviation.
Other speakers announced at the event so far include Niklas Nillroth Head of Sustainability and Public Affairs, Volvo Construction Equipment, World Green Building Council (WGBC) director Victoria Burrows, and Dr Karsten Beckhaus from Bauer.
A range of topics will be discussed, from the materials, equipment, technology and methodology that could help construction businesses achieve the goal of net zero carbon construction.
