Investing in people – education, skills and diversity

01 March / 15.00-16.00

We would like to see an industry with appropriate education at all levels, the necessary skills to deliver and perform in all areas all with a diverse, equitable and inclusive working environment. This is fundamental to achieving (net) zero carbon as well as the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals.

Putting forward proposals for COP 26, the Edge focused on people – raising aspirations, developing skills, providing support, integrating climate and ecological education as a requirement in all built environment education and continuing professional development (CPD) courses and improving employment conditions by moving from outsourcing of labour to employee contracts that provide job security, in-service training and a career path that will attract and retain good people. 

People are the key to delivering our long-term sustainability agenda.
