This online event led by ICE Truro City Club Chair, Rachel Hayden, will start by introducing the UN Sustainable Development Goals that were adopted by all United Nation Member States back in 2015, but where are we today?

The presentation will also be hearing about the work of the ICE President’s Future Leaders 2022/23 in creating a SDG Tool to be used by the industry to help promote the achievement of these goals. There will be case studies from a range of sectors and from across the world highlighting how the UN SDGs have been achieved across these projects and showing this tool in action. These include case studies from the low carbon energy, transport and water sectors.
