Can we deliver net carbon zero? Roundtable debate

Our very own Seth Schultz will be part of a panel debating whether it’s possible to deliver net carbon zero on Tuesday 25 May – 17:30pm BST (12:30pm EST).

Triennial LogoThe debate is part of the of a  ‘Triennial’ event, held every three years and by the Institution of Civial Engineers (ICE), the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) and the Canadian Society for Civil Engineering (CSCE). The event this year is online and is hosted by CSCE in Canada.

Themed ‘Planning for Climate Change and the Enhanced Resilience of Civil Infrastructure’, the two-day event is exploring how the engineering community can deliver a carbon-neutral and resilient society. The aim of the event is to discuss the role of engineers globally, the current practices, and the gaps in capabilities

David Balmforth, past ICE President

Chaired by ICE Past President David Balmforth, the 1-hour ‘Question Time’ session will be dedicated to a lively discussion on the current industry efforts towards achieving net-zero carbon, representing a range of interested voices from UK government, climate adaptation and environmental protection, infrastructure operators, professional bodies and thought leaders. The idea will be to challenge and explore current practices with a view to provoke debate on whether efforts to reduce carbon are being applied in the right areas, and in the right ways.

Participating in the debate are:

  • Jim Hall, Professor of Climate and Environmental Risk, University of Oxford
  • Emma Howard Boyd, Chair, Environment Agency
  • Seth Schultz, CEO, The Resilience Shift
  • Philip Dunn MP, Chair, Environmental Audit Committee
  • Adrian Johnson, Technical Director, Stantec
