How a major buyer can work with industry and contractors to build a market for low carbon strategic materials
In this podcast you’ll join Alex Cameron, Founder of Decarb Connect, in conversation with the Executive Director of Procurement, Malcolm Dare, and the Director of Environmental Sustainability, Steve Elderkin, to learn how they are driving the adoption of lower carbon materials.
National Highways owns the strategy for a significant proportion of the UK’s roads and are a major buyer of asphalt, cement and steel. In this podcast you’ll join Alex Cameron, Founder of Decarb Connect, in conversation with the Executive Director of Procurement, Malcolm Dare, and the Director of Environmental Sustainability, Steve Elderkin, to learn how they are driving the adoption of lower carbon materials.
Whether you’re UK-based or not, the goal of this conversation is to highlight ways of working across a value chain to create a market for low carbon materials. You’ll hear about the role of supply chain transformation, the need for new low carbon tech to be adopted quickly so buyers can decarbonise – and we look specifically at the strategy around Contracting for Carbon Contract.
If you’re a potential buyer of green products, you’ll love the insights into how to work with your value chain and the contracting for carbon concept.
If you’re an industrial, you’ll be interested in how you can encourage more collaboration with buyers of your materials to jointly scale the market for low carbon products.
And for anyone else – you’ll enjoy the buzz that comes from hearing about progress and real deployment of lower carbon products in national infrastructure.
