Information

A unique webinar and workshop package organised by the Sustainability Society for professionals involved in the design, development and leadership of our built environment.

“How do we create better business cases and get value propositions for sustainability across the line?”

“How do we influence key people to invest in change, getting sustainable results”?

This learning package entails a 1.5 hour webinar followed by a one day workshop which will expose you to the theory and practice of taking a broader view of ‘value’ in your built environment work. It will address how you as a practitioner can influence and support smart decision-making, and explore ways to account for social, cultural and natural capitals, as well as wider economic value.

The webinar will be hosted by experienced practitioners who will introduce the foundations of the theory and practice from both local and international perspectives.

The workshop will take you beyond the theoretical knowledge of the array of tools available. You will have an opportunity to explore when to use different approaches and how apply them to your project or organisation. With a particular focus on the built environment, facilitators will develop your ability to use these approaches to tell a story that resonates with your stakeholders’ expectations or motivations, gets sustainability value propositions across the line, and sets up to measure the results that matter to them.

WHO IS THIS PROGRAMME FOR?

“I am motivated to create more sustainable outcomes but that’s not what the client or my other stakeholders have asked for.”

“I am aware that my clients are requesting that their partners incorporate a wider view of value into their proposals and work programmes but I am unsure how to go about that.”

“We want to understand how to capture the competitive advantages (and mitigating the risks of not) integrating natural, social and cultural capital into our work and as an organisation.’

This programme is designed for:

  • Engineers and other professionals involved in the design and delivery of projects who want to create better business cases for integrating sustainability into their projects.
  • Practitioners who know how to do “the sustainable doing”, but have to grapple with influencing the right people to get the go-ahead.
  • Asset owners or managers who want to enhance their understanding and measurement of value over the life of their assets.
  • Teams or groups from an organisation that wish to enhance their collective capacity to incorpoate natural, social and cultural capital into their particular context or project.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES

“I want to integrate sustainability into my projects and create a robust argument for the associated value and benefits but there are so many different tools and methodologies. Which ones are the most effective in my work? How do I apply them? How can I communicate this to the decision-makers?”

This package is designed to explore the extensive array of tools and frameworks available to measure value more robustly and then focus strongly on the application of these tools to built environment contexts.

You will walk away with:

  • Enhanced understanding of the spectrum of tools to create better business cases which integrate a broader model of value
  • Practice on how to identify and construct the right story for the right stakeholders
  • Understanding of how these tools have been applied successfully in projects or organisations within the built environment community
  • Hands-on practice at selecting and applying tools to your particular context to get your value proposition across the line.

WORKSHOP PRESENTERS

Monique Cornish

Principal Advisor (Sustainability, Risk, Resilience) at Tonkin and Taylor

Monique is a built environment specialist and has worked with a range of government, corporate and NGO clients across Oceania, Europe and the Americas to help them articulate, and respond to, environmental, social and governance risks, and to deliver sustainable, resilient outcomes to stakeholders.

Monique specialises in linking sustainability and resilience measures to core business strategy, and measuring broader costs and benefits of initiatives and outcomes. Most recently Monique co-led the development of a resilience decision-support tool for the New Zealand Transport Agency (NZTA), which frames the evaluation of resilience measures in the context of broader environmental, social, cultural and economic costs and benefits.

Alice Greenhill

Sustainability Consultant at Deloitte

A consultant at Deloitte, Alice assists clients across a variety of industries and organisations in sustainability. With a background in environmental regulatory compliance and strategy, and formerly an environmental consultant, Alice’s strengths lie in the space of understanding the “why’s” of sustainability in different contexts and articulating these, as well as planning for and reviewing the implementation of best practices.

Alice’s experience has shown her that clients often are integrating sustainability in certain ways in their business processes or projects, however, may not be doing so very strategically or in accordance with best practice, and often have the opinion that sustainability is “all about the environment”. While a lover of the environment, she is also passionate about giving organisations and people the tools to integrate sustainability in meaningful and effective ways that are balanced across financial, environmental and social/cultural outcomes in both the short and long-term.
