Public financing alone is insufficient for delivering net zero – private finance must also be secured to deliver decarbonisation at scale and pace. This seminar delves into the innovative procurement approach underpinning Bristol City Leap, an innovative procurement model introduced by Bristol City Council which addresses the urgency of decarbonization through a unique public-private partnership on a city-wide scale. With a particular focus on exploring the risks and opportunities involved in procuring such large-scale city infrastructure investment programmes through public-private partnerships, it will examine the complexities through a range of disciplines, including public policy, law, geography, economics, and business.
