The ASBP’s third annual conference and exhibition will explore ‘Plastics in Construction – Issues, Impacts and Alternatives’.

 

Human health and planetary health are by very definition inter-related…we can’t have one without the other. Since the BBC’s Blue Planet II, the UK has woken up to the problem of plastic in the environment, with some commentators even suggesting that plastic is a greater threat to the planet than climate change. Anti-plastic has rapidly become a popular cause-celebre championed by all mainstream media. So, how should the built environment industry respond? Is the problem limited to single use packaging or are all plastic products a problem to which we must find alternatives?

Our conference will bring together expert thinkers and doers to focus on the thorny challenge of plastic. As usual for an ASBP event, we will take a holistic view by exploring the impacts of plastic products on the health of people, and the planet.

We are delighted to announce our keynote speakers; environmentalist & yachtswoman Emily Penn, a leading advocate for reducing plastic pollution in our oceans; and Professor Sean Smith, Director of Sustainable Construction at Edinburgh Napier University. Along with other leading names like Stephen Holgate and Anna Stec who was featured at the recent AECB’s annual conference.
