Arup global sustainable development leader, Jo da Silva, was made a Dame in the recent New Year Honours. She talks to Jackie Whitelaw about social responsibility in business, the engineering response to COP26 and the impact of the pandemic on future planning of cities.

Mike White urges structural engineers to act now in their projects to reduce embodied carbon if we are to keep to the IPCC’s 1.5°C warming target.
