Building Division Forum Meeting: ESG Discussion

Many businesses have been challenged by environmental, social and governance (ESG) considerations and are increasingly rethinking their approach to their operations in response to ESG concerns. Contractors have not been immune to this trend and are under increased pressure to reduce their environmental footprint. But what do trends in ESG mean for the construction industry and how can contractors prepare?

Many businesses have been challenged by environmental, social, and governance (ESG) considerations and are increasingly rethinking their approach to their operations in response to ESG concerns. Contractors have not been immune to this trend and are under increased pressure to reduce their environmental footprint. But what do trends in ESG mean for the construction industry and how can contractors prepare?

Please join the AGC Building Division on July 14, 2022, at 10 a.m., for an in-depth look at ESG and its impact on our industry. The virtual forum will feature experts Tommy Linstroth and Renée Azerbegi who will discuss ESG, its importance to construction, and how you can prepare to respond to some of the most pressing challenges posed by ESG for the built environment. Q&A to follow.

The Building Division Forum will be open to all AGC members.
