Talking Sustainable Infrastructure with key policy makers
“By engaging with policy makers we can bring our extensive experience of construction solutions to the table to deliver better outcomes and value for the end users and the taxpayer.”

Jeremy Greenwood, Lord Tony Berkeley - chairman of the Rail Freight Group, Lord Andrew Stunell - ex Minister for Construction, Christine Jardine MP - constituency MP for our Hillwood Asphalt plant just outside of Edinburgh, Andrew Lewer MP - member of the House of Commons Select Committee for Housing, Communities and Local Government, and Martyn Kenny - Sustainability director.
We teamed up with the UK Green Building Council (UKGBC) to host a private dinner in the House of Commons.
The event, entitled Delivering Sustainable Infrastructure: the role of resilient supply chains in promoting British business and achieving maximum value, saw politicians, civil servants and businesses, such as HS2, Balfour Beatty, Skanska and Osbourne, get together to look at public policy challenges.
A Tarmac team lead by Jeremy Greenwood, managing director, National Commercial and infrastructure Construction Solutions, discussed how to deliver the government’s £600bn pipeline of projects between now and 2050.
Jeremy said: “Decisions taken in government around the infrastructure pipeline have a profound impact on how we’re building our future, so it is important that our voice is heard early and clearly.”
