We are now at a critical juncture for action on climate change. Without immediate, rapid and large-scale reductions in greenhouse gas emissions, Paris Agreement goals will not be met. The only way to net zero is through governments and business working together to transform the infrastructure powering our global economy.

The UK was first to commit to net zero, and has a long track record of bankable, sustainable infrastructure projects.  'In service of sustainable infrastructure' showcases the UK’s professional services sector and how it can help the world transition to net zero.

$6.9tn of infrastructure investment is needed each year between now and 2030 to meet climate and development objectives

The UK has one of the longest track records in green infrastructure, powered by an experienced professional and business services sector (PBS).  Whether domestic or international, in developing or developed markets, UK PBS can deliver innovative, commercially viable, and sustainable infrastructure projects.

Supported by PWC with case studies featuring ARUP, BDO, EY, Osborne Clarke, Mott MacDonald, Pinsent Masons, and Vivid Economics.
