IN CONVERSATION WITH... NATIONAL HIGHWAYS
Our forthcoming In Conversation With… webinar features the biodiversity lead at National Highways, and takes place on Wednesday 19 October at 12pm to 1pm.
EIC welcomes Laurence Lewis Jones, principal environmental advisor – head of biodiversity at National Highways.
Laurence has over ten years’ experience as an environmental advisor, policy advisor, ecologist, and researcher. He has led diverse teams with a range of specialities supporting the development of environmental policies and legislation, including the Environment Act and its accompanying secondary legislation.
He has delivered, monitored and evaluated strategies for government policies and initiatives, provided technical environmental advice on Environmental Impact Assessments, habitat regulation assessments, and environmental appraisals on nationally significant infrastructure projects.
The presentation will cover National Highways’ journey on delivering challenging targets on Biodiversity No Net Loss and Net Gain, and how they are improving the management of their soft estate through the use of data.
As with our previous ‘In Conversation With’ event, there is plenty of room for discussion, debate, and questions from the audience which will be led by Robert Spencer, global head of ESG advisory services at AECOM and is also the chair of EIC’s Nature and Biodiversity taskforce.
