The firm will work with key suppliers to build a sustainable supply chain and will also develop a carbon management plan for the event.
To help achieve the international standard sustainability certification for events and deliver a carbon-neutral conference, Arup will assess the event’s energy consumption, travel emissions, catering, waste and transportation.
Carbon consultants, transport planners, waste experts and sustainable supply chain specialists teams will design the plan.
Sustainability Director of Arup, Jonathan Ben-Ami commented: “We will bring our global knowledge and expertise on sustainable event management to COP26 with the aim of also leaving a positive long-term legacy for the UK and Glasgow.”
The engineering company has also worked in the past on other projects in Glasgow, including the entertainment venue SSE Hydro and Zero Waste Scotland which promotes circular economy.
