As part of Skanska’s The Future of Construction series, Jeremy Greenwood, Tarmac managing director, national commercial and construction solutions, was among the guest speakers taking part in the digital event.

Speaking at the event Greenwood said: "We see collaboration across products. We see a lot of hybrid structures where we have steel, concrete and timber all working together in one structure with each performing at its best in that building."

The live broadcast on Tuesday 20 October, was hosted by BBC News presenter Maryam Moshiri and Skanska UK’s president and CEO Gregor Craig and covered a range of different viewpoints related to low carbon construction. The event also featured senior representatives from UK Green Building Council and HS2, as well as Mayor of Bristol, Marvin Rees.

Greenwood said Tarmac has for a long time been fully committed to supporting the transition to a net zero carbon economy and has already implemented extensive changes across its business, working practices and product portfolio.

He added that materials suppliers can play a crucial role in the journey to net zero and offer practical advice that industry partners and customers can take to cut carbon and make more sustainable choices.
