Webinar | Modern methods of construction

The Government's Construction Playbook emphasises the need to build smarter and more sustainable, endorsing Modern Methods of Construction (MMC) as a way to deliver significant improvements in productivity, efficiency, safety and quality for both the construction industry and public sector.

Currently. the UK’s built environment – from concrete, brick and steel to heating and insulation – contributes an enormous 25% to the country’s greenhouse gas emissions. MMC helps the construction sector to sector transform its methods to meet the UK’s net zero targets and enable people to reduce spiralling heating bills.

Public Sector Executive would like to invite you to an exclusive webinar in partnership with WSP and Rider Levett Bucknall to take a deeper look into the benefits of MMC with real examples of how MMC has helped public sector reduce the upfront carbon of their projects.

The event is chaired by Barrington Billings, Chair of Manningham Housing Association and he will be joined by Cllr David Meller, Shadow Cabinet Member for Economy and Regeneration at Stockport Metropolitan Borough Council, Dan Hagan, Director and Modern Methods of Construction Lead for Property & Buildings at WSP, Richard Quarry, Partner at RLB and Louise Richardson, Chair of the Planning Committee at Blaby District Council.

Ep 48. Achieving Net Zero - Cllr Abdul Jabbar - Oldham Council

As central government aims for the UK to be net zero by 2050, councils around the country make plans for how to reduce emissions. This episode’s guest, Oldham’s Councillor Abdul Jabbar outlines the importance of coming together to reduce the nation’s carbon footprint, the benefits of achieving net zero, and how Oldham Council are working to do just that.

Touching on the role that the public sector can play in sustainability, Cllr Jabbar said:

“I think it’s really important that the public sector gives true leadership in this space. I think something like one third of the carbon emissions in the country come from the public sector, so obviously we’re a big polluter in terms of the emissions.”

Councillor Jabbar also spoke about challenges being faced by organisations:

“I think the biggest one has been finance. Clearly the local government sector in particular has had its grants cut from central government by a huge amount and that’s had a very big impact in terms of our plans to take forward projects in relation to climate change, so that’s a major issue.”

To hear what Cllr Jabbar has to say about the mission to achieve net zero carbon emissions, listen to the latest episode of the Public Sector Executive Podcast.
