Infrarail seminars: Sustainability for a modern railway contractor

On Thursday 3 May at 11:10, Steve Holmes, Safety Director at Balfour Beatty Rail will be presenting ‘Sustainability for a modern railway contractor’ at Infrarail.

Sustainability isn’t just about the environment, so how does a successful railway infrastructure contractor integrate profitable markets and healthy communities into its sustainability efforts?

Moreover, how does it get the sustainability agenda in to the hearts and minds of every member of staff, supplier, sub-contractor and client?

Well, one has to start at the very beginning and …everyone’s been doing it for a long time – they just didn’t realise it.

This presentation will introduce delegates to Balfour Beatty’s plans to meet the challenges of sustainability, how it intends to get there and some examples of what has already done.
