As the race to tackle climate change gathers pace across the world, Climate and Sustainability Services Leader for Australasia, Joan Ko, has revealed bold plans to super-charge Arup’s sustainable development response in Australasia.
This includes significantly expanding and strengthening the capabilities of her multidisciplinary team across the region as businesses and governments double down on a new wave of action to respond to Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG), decarbonisation, equity and resilience drivers.
“We are facing the urgent issues – and opportunities – that come from grappling with climate, biodiversity and social equity crises. Organisations are looking for ways to meaningfully respond. We have brought together design and advisory capabilities from across Arup to tackle complex challenges that transcend sectors, organisational levels and geographic boundaries. We are uniquely set up to unlock practical solutions, decarbonisation, social value, adaptation and resilience, environment and biodiversity, and the circular economy,” said Ms Ko.
