This webinar will look at the updated FIDIC short form of Contract, the FIDIC Green Book 2021. The updated Green Book meets the current demand of the international construction industry for projects where the perceived level of risk is low and/or where construction parties need a contract form that is simple to use and doesn’t require significant contract administration and management resources.
The Green Book 2nd Edition continues FIDIC’s key principles of balanced risk sharing while seeking to build on the substantial experience gained from the original Green Book’s use over the past 22 years. The updated contract captures the essential rights and obligations of the parties and is used as an alternative to the 2017 Red and Yellow Books, resulting in FIDIC providing for a fully-fledged range of contract solutions to meet different project specificities.
The Green Book also includes some brand-new features such as the prolongation cost (PGC) mechanism, a tabulated summary of contractor’s entitlement for employer’s risks, the use of an insurance certificate to be signed by an insurer or broker, user-friendly flow charts and 40 communication forms provided as guidance for practitioners. Speakers at his webinar will discuss the new features of the book and its potential application in the market.

- a webinar organised by the FIDIC Sustainable Development Committee
The engineers who design and deliver the world’s infrastructure and built environment have a key strategic role in ensuring the world tackles climate change and achieves net zero by 2050. That’s why, in November 2021, FIDIC launched a Climate Change Charter to set out specific actions to be taken by individual engineers, companies, member associations and project teams and called on the global engineering, construction and infrastructure industry to step up and commit to it.
This webinar will review the progress made to date since the launch of the charter and examine how the industry is collectively addressing the issues of sustainability, net zero and how these efforts are contributing to the achievement of the UN’s sustainable development goals.

- a webinar organised by the FIDIC Membership Committee and the Directors and Secretaries Advisory Council
FIDIC’s member associations play a crucial role in representing the interests of the consulting engineering industry on a global scale. As the global representative body for these national member associations of consulting engineers, representing over one million engineering professionals and 40,000 firms in more than 100 countries worldwide, FIDIC and its member associations play an increasingly influential role on the world scale. Given that the buildings and infrastructure sector in which FIDIC members work contributes around US$36trillion to global GDP, the importance of both FIDIC and its member associations is clear for all to see.
This webinar will look at how FIDIC member associations benefit the global industry and showcase best practice and examples of the difference being made by members internationally.

- a special webinar to mark International Anti-Corruption Day and launch of the State of the World Report delivered by FIDIC and the FIDIC Integrity Management Committee
This special FIDIC webinar has been organised to mark the UN’s International Anti-corruption Day which takes place on 9 December 2022 to raise awareness of corruption and of the role of the UN convention in combating and preventing it.
The global cost of corruption has been estimated at up to $4 trillion a year, a massive amount which FIDIC condemns in absolute terms. Corruption leads to a lack of trust and failed projects and this damages the construction industry as a whole. FIDIC’s core values of Quality, Integrity and Sustainability offer a key platform in galvanising the industry to work together to increase the transparency of infrastructure delivery.
This webinar will look at how the global construction and infrastructure industry can collaborate better and unite to combat corruption. Find out more by booking your free place at this webinar on Friday 9 December 2022 at 12 noon CET.
