The Chair of the Sustainable Construction Hub, Andrew Dorree of BAM Nuttall, said: “For an area that covers Yorkshire/Leeds City Region, a wider community that has always been rich in history through its construction routes, our priorities must include the way we attract new talent. Using values as the lure, and ensuring we talk to people on the right level, will help us address issues such as diversity and inclusion.
“The future for sustainable practices is now. The future, in terms of the environment, is at a critical point with regards to what type of world we want to leave behind for future generations and our youth in particular, have mobilised. They are on the front lines of change and we should strive to work with them to facilitate that change through openness and a willingness to provide the opportunity to people to re-skill and up-skill to help us fulfil our vision for the area.”
