The Supply Chain Sustainability School is hosting an interactive online conference on Thursday 18th February (09:30-12:30), to mark a challenging but potentially transformational year of activity amongst its facilities management partners. 

Although the FM sector face considerable levels of uncertainty, together with its client base and supply chain, they will deliver a functional, flexible, safe, healthy, and sustainable built environment. The conference will be packed with audience polls, Q&A sessions and a host of speakers and panel members from across the built environment and contain vital insights for any organisation seeking to contribute.

Keith Chanter, Chief Executive Officer, EMCOR UK will address placing ‘purpose’ at the heart of strategy, focusing on the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals and how we can all contribute to their delivery.

Catriona Brady, Director of Strategy and Development, World Green Building Council will consider the challenge of transforming health and wellbeing in the built environment.

James Cadman, Lead Consultant at Action Sustainability will suggest why and how we can go about saving the low carbon gains achieved during lockdown. 

Rory Murphy, Commercial Director at VINCI Facilities, will examine how we mainstream a social value-based business model as we build back – a critical topic for any organisation and particularly in the light of recent changes in client expectations for those supplying the Public Sector.

The event rounds off with a plenary session chaired by Shaun McCarthy OBE, Chair of the Supply Chain Sustainability School. Panellists will answer questions on how the FM sector plan to deliver a successful and sustainable built environment in the face of unprecedented levels of uncertainty, including; current and post-pandemic conditions, the skills gap and more.

Panellists will include the speakers along with: Amelle Mestari (Procurement Director, Bouygues E&S), Ash Wheelhouse (Senior Property & Projects Manager, SGN Property) Martin Gettings (Head of Sustainability, Canary Wharf Group) and Andy Haigh (Director, Climate Positive Solutions, Grosvenor).

Mark Turner, FM Sector Lead for the Supply Chain Sustainability School said: “This is the second FM conference the School has hosted but the first to be run entirely online. We’ve had unprecedented levels of audience interest already and we’re excited to address such important topic matter.”

Keith Chanter, CEO of EMCOR UK said: “As a committed Partner to the School, EMCOR UK are delighted to be involved with this event. We all have our part to play in supporting the delivery of the UN sustainable development goals and there has never been a more important time to get this right.”

Catriona Brady, Director of Strategy and Development, World Green Building Council said: “The majority of the built environment of the future already exists today. This means that there is a huge opportunity for FMs working with clients and the supply chain, to reap the benefits of a sustainable future. We will be addressing some of the biggest challenges and opportunities facing the FM industry, such as health and sustainability, through presenting WorldGBC’s ground-breaking Health & Wellbeing Framework.”

Rory Murphy, Commercial Director at VINCI Facilities, said: “We need to collaborate with like minded people to address the sustainability challenges we face as an industry and as a built environment. Partnering with the School has significantly helped us in our efforts to achieve this and we’re delighted to support the conference.”
