Overview

ICE have sponsored an update to PAS 2080, the BSI standard for managing carbon in buildings and infrastructure. The standard looks at the whole value chain and aims to reduce carbon and cost through intelligent design, construction, and use.

The new, freely available PAS 2080 has an integrated approach to the built environment, with the scope widening to buildings, not just infrastructure. There’s also a focus on systems thinking in the wider network, taking a whole life view, and collaboration across the value chain.

The revision also urges users to consider co-benefits with climate resilience and nature-based solutions, alongside carbon reduction.

In this event, we’ll hear about the importance of these changes from the PAS 2080 Technical Authors themselves and discuss adoption of the new document. We’ll also hear from key stakeholders of two of the case studies which feature in the revised guidance document.

Keith Howells

Keith Howells is the 158th President of the ICE.

Having graduated in civil engineering in 1974, Keith joined one of the founder members of the Mott MacDonald Group and spent the first 10 years of his career in infrastructure design and project management, mostly in the water and transport sectors. On completing an MBA in 1986, he became involved with the planning, feasibility, and financial and economic analysis of projects, principally in the water and environmental sectors. Over the next decade he worked on numerous projects funded by the international finance institutions as well as by UK government bodies.

Keith has built career long experience in the planning, study and design of hydraulic structures, hydropower, urban drainage, sewerage, water supply and river engineering schemes. He has worked in numerous countries as well as in the UK. He ran the firm’s Water and Environment business from 1997 to 2002, before becoming the Group Managing Director in 2004, directing the firm’s expansion in North America and Australasia. Keith became Chair of the Group’s Executive Board in 2011, responsible to shareholders for the performance of the company and its strategic direction – a role he continued until mid-2019.

Keith was on the board of the Association for Consultancy and Engineering from 2011 to 2015, and its Chair in 2013; he was a member of the CBI’s Construction Council from 2013 to 2019; and a member of the Cranfield School of Management Advisory Board from 2012 to 2020.  He is a Fellow of the Institution of Civil Engineers, a Fellow of the Chartered Institution of Water and Environmental Management and a Fellow of the Royal Academy of Engineering.

Dr Heleni Pantelidou

Heleni is an Associate Director at Arup, driving Climate Action and Sustainable Development in the Infrastructure Group, London. An enthusiastic promoter of whole life decarbonisation of Infrastructure, Heleni advances and coordinates sustainable development and whole life carbon strategies for the built environment.

She combines her deep engineering knowledge with the belief that the construction industry is key for the net zero carbon transition and contributing towards environmental regeneration, responding to the climate and biodiversity crises.

Heleni has close links with academia and has acted as the Industrial Supervisor for several research projects. She supports and coordinates sustainable development skills and expertise, including integration of Planetary Health principles in planning and design.

She firmly believes that climate, biodiversity and environmental degradation are interlinked and solving them requires deep understanding of complex natural systems and how the built environment interacts with them.

A member of the Green Construction Board and the Institution of Civil Engineers Carbon Project, she strives to accelerate decarbonisation in the built environment. She is co-author of the revised PAS2080:2023 Carbon Management in Buildings and Infrastructure.
