We're excited to have on board Compass Housing Services' Group Chief Strategic Engagement Officer, Professor David Adamson OBE, for a special Industry Connect event on November 9, coinciding with this year's COP 26 UN Climate Change Conference (October 31-November 12).
He'll be joined by Matthew Woodward, CEO of Unity Housing, who has been working with David to align Unity Housing with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and to set the organisation on a journey to deliver Agenda 2030. Matthew, his team and the Unity Board are fully committed to making the greatest contribution they can to the achievement of the SDGs.
"The organisations we work within can make a substantial impact to reduce carbon footprints. The United Nations Global Compact and its Australian Network are driving business responses and major companies are making ambitious carbon reduction targets and setting zero-carbon dates far more ambitious than their respective national governments. The problem for many organisations is knowing how to begin this process and how they can integrate carbon reduction objectives in their general governance and strategic planning." — Prof. David Adamson OBE
To learn more about SDGs, and the role that the housing sector can play in tackling climate change, you can read David's article: Climate change and how the housing sector can help on the ahi blog.
