New network aiming to push sustainable agenda
A business forum has been created on sustainable development goals (SDGs).
Dr Alex Opoku, an expert in sustainable built environment and associate professor in project management and quantity surveying at University College London (UCL), has set up Construction4SDG2030 in partnership with HTA Design and WokenUp.
The focus of the network/forum is to support construction businesses to take advantage of the opportunities SDGs present. “Businesses that align their long-term strategies with SDGs will be efficient and gain competitive advantage,” says Dr Opoku.
“This forum will change the business-as-usual culture in the construction industry to a more sustainable practice.”
