Skanska UK Virtual Work Experience: COP26, Sustainability & Environmental Impact
Would you like to learn about the upcoming COP26 conference
with the UN, how COP26 will affect the roles within the Construction and Engineering
industry, where you can potentially use your transferable skills and what
potential Environmental and Digital roles lie ahead for you?
Skanska UK are a leading Construction and Engineering expert
and would like to share what their Environmental and Digital teams have learnt,
and continue to learn, over the decades of experience delivering successful
projects. Skanska UK are currently responsible for both the M42 and A428
improvement projects. Our Environmental team is having to adapt to create communities
and natural habitats not only as apart of their Biodiversity commitments, but
also for the expected outcomes of COP26. Our Digital teams will also respond to
COP26 by innovating and implementing new procedures that cover storage of data,
procuring new technology and reducing energy consumption.
This is an opportunity to spend a week with experts, from an
Environmental and Digital standpoint, and learn about the new and interesting
ways they’re helping to innovate the Construction industry to be more
sustainable. There will be presentations, webinars, and guest speakers during
the week, and you will constantly be learning through tasks and activities that
COP26; what it is, how our Environmental and
Digital teams will respond to it, what’s meant by ‘hitting 1.5 degrees’ and
‘mobilise finances’, and how you can get involved.
