ICE Training’s popular Carbon Management in Infrastructure training course has been selling out in the UK but is also seeing considerable interest from abroad. Infrastructure New South Wales (NSW) organised for the training to be run on three separate occasions, allowing people to attend from across NSW Government, as well as government infrastructure organisations from Victoria, South Australia, Tasmania, Western Australia, the Northern Territory, Queensland and the Australian Capital Territory. This is helping to enhance carbon management capability across Australia.
Relevant to all infrastructure professionals across the supply chain, the course explains how to set and achieve meaningful carbon reduction targets for the benefit of the project, the client and the global environment.
The training is centred around the world’s first internationally applicable carbon management specification: PAS 2080 - Carbon Management in Buildings and Infrastructure. Infrastructure NSW is basing their own policy for decarbonising infrastructure on PAS 2080, meaning that the Carbon Management in Infrastructure course is closely aligned with their needs. Undertaking the Carbon Management in Infrastructure training is uplifting capability to implement these principles on projects and enhance carbon literacy for infrastructure agencies in NSW and across the country.
Gabrielle Gonzales, Communications Director for Infrastructure NSW said “The ICE Training Carbon Management in Infrastructure course was chosen as it was delivered by one of the key authors of PAS2080: 2023. The ICE Training team were extremely accommodating and flexible to run a training course at a time that suited Australian working hours. The course had also been recommended by colleagues at Transport for NSW, who had previously undertaken the training.
“The course was an excellent introduction to carbon management, providing a comprehensive overview of action on Net Zero in the UK and the technical requirements to manage carbon in infrastructure projects. Lewis Barlow was an excellent facilitator, imparting his extensive technical knowledge and project experience in an engaging way.”
Lewis Barlow, WSP Technical Director and tutor of the ICE Training Carbon Management course, said “It is so encouraging to see such interest in this course across the UK and internationally. The topics we cover, from leadership to carbon estimation and emerging low-carbon technologies, are relevant everywhere. The more we collaborate internationally and share our experiences of both what works and what doesn’t, the faster we will transition to a sustainable, decarbonised society.”
