ICE President Rachel Skinner provides an update on Progress towards Shaping Zero
ICE-SA is proud to host an online webinar to raise further awareness on the issues around Climate Change, and the important role that engineers have in the journey towards Zero Carbon. As background to the webinar, we kindly ask you to view the video “Shaping Zero” which was presented by Rachel Skinner as part of her presidential address.
“Shaping Zero” features a cast of famous faces arguing passionately for the urgent need to act on climate change. Experts interviewed included world-renowned explorer Sir Ranulph Fiennes, Chair of the UK Committee on Climate Change Lord Deben, former UK Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change Amber Rudd, former ICE President Sir John Armitt, the Mayor of Los Angeles Eric Garcetti and the Mayor of Stockholm Anna König Jerimyr, Eden Project Founder Sir Tim Smit and several industry experts.
All the experts featured agree that climate change is the most urgent issue that civil engineers need to tackle and that the wider public needs civil engineers to make that significant difference in the years ahead.
ICE President, Rachel Skinner, will address us in this webinar to brief us on the progress made in the UK and other areas of the world, and to inform us on our obligations as engineers towards reducing our carbon impact.
