Ian’s lecture is titled “Lighter footprints, leaner designs – how can carbon footprinting help engineers?” After giving a quick explanation of the causes and threats of climate change, he will explore how facilities and operations can be analysed to calculate their carbon footprints. Along the way he will draw on his experience working in the construction and infrastructure industry, with practical suggestions for how and when carbon footprinting can be undertaken in engineering projects for maximum effect. Ian will also review some of the ways that engineering projects can contribute both to climate change mitigation (cutting greenhouse gas emissions) and adaptation (becoming more resilient to some level of inevitable climate change).

Ian Corder is a Director of ESI Monitor, a Guernsey-based start-up which helps organisations become more sustainable through a ‘digital first’ framework and solution. He is a Chartered Environmental Manager with CIWEM and holds a MSc in Environmental Management and a BA in Land Economy, as well as qualifications in organisational management, project management and accounting from the ILM, APM and CIMA. Ian has a passion for change and technology and has worked in a range of win-business and delivery roles across the engineering and environmental sectors including at blue-chip companies such as Balfour Beatty and Rolls-Royce Defence. Most recently, he was Head of Cost and Carbon on the UK Environment Agency’s £2.5Bn flood and coastal defence programme.
