Members and industry influencers met in Birmingham on 11 October at IEMA’s conference to see the launch of the institute’s latest publication.

A Golden Opportunity: Delivering future-fit infrastructure for the UK through enhanced sustainability skills was revealed at the IEMA Skills & Sustainable Infrastructure Conference, part of UK Construction Week. The event and the publication both examine the UK’s new “golden age of infrastructure”, and the role of sustainability skills in delivering the nation’s sustainable infrastructure plan.

The report, available for free at iema.net, states that there is a “golden opportunity to deliver future-fit infrastructure for the UK through enhanced sustainability skills”. Using member-generated research, the document reports that there is a solid base of sustainability skills across UK infrastructure – not yet fully optimised – and whole-life asset understanding is an urgent priority for improvement.
