Making a difference for people and reviewing the current landscape, including procurement trends, government and client drivers and their interaction and importance for social value.  

  • How do we build sustainable communities and a circular economy?

  • How best can we engage citizens and get buy-in for projects, social value procurement trends and client drivers for value? 
  • How do we develop a global community focus, ensuring that no one is left behind? 
  • How do we create industry recognition for projects that achieve significant social improvements? 
  • Is environmental, social and corporate governance (ESG) the panacea to addressing the social goals for the infrastructure sector?
