'Greening' Britain's Infrastructure Reception

'Greening' Britain's Infrastructure Reception

18th July 2018
4-6pm

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
