Tarmac participate in net-zero carbon webcast

Skanska webcast

Jeremy Greenwood among guest speakers taking part in Skanska digital webcast event

TARMAC have participated in an industry-leading webcast event that discussed and explored the challenges and opportunities for net-zero carbon in the construction sector.

As part of Skanska’s ‘The Future of Construction’ series, Jeremy Greenwood, Tarmac’s managing director of national commercial and construction solutions, was among the guest speakers who took part in the digital event alongside senior representatives from UK Green Building Council and HS2, as well as the Mayor of Bristol, Marvin Rees.

Hosted by BBC News presenter Maryam Moshiri and Skanska UK’s president and chief executive officer, Gregor Craig, the live broadcast took place earlier today and covered a range of different viewpoints related to low-carbon construction.

Commenting ahead of the event, Mr Greenwood said Skanska’s event and panel discussion would provide an excellent and timely opportunity to talk about one of the most pressing issues currently facing the construction sector.

‘For a long time now at Tarmac, we’ve been fully committed to supporting the transition to a net-zero-carbon economy and have already implemented extensive changes across our business, working practices and product portfolio,’ he said.

‘I’m therefore looking forward to discussing with the panel the challenges, opportunities and crucial role that materials suppliers can play in the journey to net zero, together with practical advice that industry partners and customers can take now to cut carbon and make more sustainable choices.’
