Achilles Live: Delivering Sustainability in the Australian Construction Industry

This event has already happened. Don’t miss out again by checking out all our upcoming events

It is with great pleasure that Hall & Wilcox and Achilles invite you to attend an interactive, in-person lunchtime roundtable discussion with keynote speaker, Dr James Cockayne, NSW Anti-slavery Commissioner.

The drive to net zero presents a huge opportunity for the construction sector in delivering a just transition. Alongside the focus on buildings and infrastructure to support a more sustainable future, there is also increasing focus on people too – looking beyond emissions reductions and environmental pollution to human rights, including the prevention of modern slavery, child labour and workforce wellbeing.

Why attend?

The global shift is happening with a backdrop of increasing global legislation with the modern slavery laws in Australia being one such example. For construction companies looking to unlock strong business performance, their approach to sustainability has to be a central concern – now and in the future.

Join us and Construction industry peers to discuss what these changes mean for construction companies as they look to the future and how might cross-sector collaboration enable the industry to deliver on its sustainability goals more efficiently and effectively.

Programme

This roundtable discussion will bring together construction business leaders, regulators and experts to discuss:

  • How the introduction of Australia’s modern slavery laws has and continues to impact the construction sector.
  • How sustainability regulation is evolving in Australia and what that means for construction businesses.
  • What Australian construction companies can learn from international counterparts.
  • What constitutes doing “enough” when it comes to combating the issue of human exploitation.
  • How companies are integrating ESG standards into their business strategies and the associated risks and opportunities.
  • The different business challenges associated with achieving sustainability and ways to overcome these.

This event will also provide you the opportunity to network with fellow construction industry professionals with a common interest in sustainability and ESG regulation.
