AECOM, in partnership with the Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE), would like to invite you to join us for our upcoming Conversation for Collaboration symposium: Becoming Net Zero Heroes.
As engineering professionals, we know we have a responsibility – a duty of care even – to future proof our cities. We know that the buildings and infrastructure we design and construct need to play a part in reducing carbon emissions and creating sustainable legacies for our communities and for the planet.
But are we doing enough? And do we have the right kind of strategies, data, tools and processes in place to tackle this climate challenge head on?
Just over a year ago, we invited industry practitioners and academics to join us for a conversation on the Northern Metropolis. We looked at this once in a lifetime opportunity to build an entirely new city.
With the Northern Metropolis continuing to take shape, we are presented with another, similarly unique opportunity – constructing a city that will greatly minimize the impact of the built environment, be climate resilient, and which will shape a better future for Hong Kong and the neighboring Greater Bay Area.
As engineers, we need to embrace this challenge. In Hong Kong, we have in the past faced highly complex engineering challenges, leading to the design and construction of some of the most innovative and effective infrastructure in the world.
Now is the time to apply this same solution-oriented approach to the climate crisis, which is why we are once again partnering with ICE to share expertise and to discuss collaborative strategies on this pressing issue.
