'Greening' Britain's Infrastructure Reception

'Greening' Britain's Infrastructure Reception

18th July 2018

This summer is important for planning the country’s future infrastructure needs. The National Infrastructure Assessment (NIA) will, according to the National Infrastructure Commission (NIC), ‘analyse the UK’s long-term economic infrastructure needs, outline a strategic vision over the next 30 years, and set out recommendations for how identified needs should be met.’

The NIC’s Infrastructure Priorities include: connected, liveable city-regions; infrastructure to support housing; eliminating carbon emissions from energy and waste; and reducing the risk of drought and flooding. This has many applications to sustainable infrastructure in the themes of decarbonisation, climate change adaptation and natural capital.

Speakers include:

  • Philip Graham, CEO - National Infrastructure Commission
  • Dan Poulter MP - Environmental Audit Committee
  • Rebecca Long-Bailey MP - Shadow Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy
  • Lillian Greenwood MP - Transport Select Committee Chair
  • James Heappey MP- Chair of the Back Bench Policy Committee for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy
  • Clive Lewis MP - Shadow Treasury Minister
  • Baroness Featherstone – Lib Dem Energy & Climate Change Spokesperson
  • Alan Brown MP - SNP Infrastructure Spokesperson
