Watch our on-demand webinar for insights on why social value creation is the next big thing for infrastructure, and how to create social value through all phases of the infrastructure lifecycle.
For decades, governments have been using infrastructure as a mechanism to improve quality of life and wellbeing.
Social value is not a new concept, and while the intent is there, Australia is still struggling to unlock and measure the full social, economic and environmental benefits that infrastructure can generate.
Featuring insights from expert panellists Romilly Madew AO, Chief Executive Officer of Infrastructure Australia; Vanessa Pilla, RPS National Lead for Social Advisory; and Lee Jollow, RPS National Lead for Economics; they will unpack the strategic drivers required to fully realise these social value opportunities.
