J Hall Webinar31/10
Chartered geologist, Arcadis
The energy and fuel retail sector is one of many industries that will undergo considerable disruption in the next decade to meet the emerging challenges of climate change and the pressure to improve sustainability from both governance and clients. Owners and operators will need to understand the potential impact of their facilities on the environment and opportunities for improving their future asset resilience.
This webinar will provide an overview of the recently published Energy Retail Station Green Guide which is intended to serve as a practical – and where possible future-proofed – document for all stakeholders involved in energy and fuel retail produced in partnership with Arcadia and Artelia. Arcadis is the world's leading company, working in over 70 countries delivering sustainable design, engineering, and consultancy solutions for natural and built assets. Artelia UK is part of an international, multi-disciplinary consultancy, working in over 40 countries, specialising in the sectors of building construction, infrastructure, water, industry and environment.
This guidance provides a valuable toolkit for those looking at the nature of their retail site portfolio now and into the future, and written to help stakeholders determine the decisions that will have the greatest positive impact on their site operations.
Embedding measurable targets identified within the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDGs) alongside guidance, highlights where industry-specific design, construction or operational decisions support the UN SDGs at any stage during the asset lifecycle, whether applied to the development of a new site or redevelopment of an existing asset, such as hybrid, EV and hydrogen retailing sites.
The UN SDGs include a wide range of measurable targets related to all aspects of sustainability – from contamination and effects on soil-water-sediment systems, emissions and direct environmental impact to social factors and safety. Specific examples of changes and innovation will be explored to show actions that can be implemented to directly affect sustainability goals throughout the asset lifecycle.
