Sanderson Projects at the APM Sustainability Event

Posted May 20, 2024

At the end of January, the Projects team extended an invitation to all of our Associates to join us at the South-West APM Event around ‘Sustainability in Project Management’ with guest speaker Will Masters.

APM is the only chartered membership organisation representing the project profession in the world, so we’re really excited to be a part of their events. In true Sanderson style, APM also believe that project delivery is all about achieving our clients desired outcomes but is also about so much more than process alone. They challenge the status quo and champion the new to help the project profession deliver better.

At this event, speaker Will Masters was incredibly engaging and provided a clear and insightful approach to layering sustainability into Project Delivery. It was a stark reminder that Climate Change is happening all around us, and we all have a responsibility to flatten the steep curve, both in our day to day lives and through the project lifecycle.

What did we learn?

The biggest take home for us as a team was around culture, and that being the biggest driver in positive change.

Following the event, we as a team have been exploring ways we can reduce our carbon footprint, personally and professionally with an initial focus on travel to work.

We are collating data from within our Community and will be taking travel impacts into account for new Associates throughout 2024.

Coming up next

Over the course of the year, we’ll be offering more APM events out to our Projects Associate Community, so keep an eye out and let us know if you would like to join us!
