The International Federation of Consulting Engineers (FIDIC), aided by the Association of Consultancy and Engineering and other member organisations this week demanded a dialogue with government with regards to carbon reduction levels and climate change.
Consultant engineers met this week at the FIDIC conference in London to discuss climate change and what the world will face without an agreement over carbon reduction levels at the United Nations Climate Change conference this December.
Meeting over the last three days, the global consulting engineer industry demanded a meaningful dialogue with governments to avert a climate change catastrophe and reach a conclusive agreement on carbon reduction levels.
The FIDIC Organisation intends to send an open letter to governments attending Copenhagen, calling for agreement and giving examples of how the industry can offer sustainable solutions to these global problems.
ACE Chief Executive and host of the FIDIC conference Nelson Ogunshakin said: “The last days have brought together over 700 consulting engineers from around the world who have proposed critical engineering solutions to these issues.”
ACE, the conference hosting member, has undertaken to lead the delivery of this agenda and work with the other 85 member countries across the world to ensure we mobilise resources to building a sustainable future.
