Roundtable: Goal to Net Zero – Sustainable Construction
In 2019, parliament passed legislation requiring the government to reduce the UK’s net emissions of greenhouse gases by 100% by 2050.
How does this relate to the property industry? According to the Global Status Report, building and construction activities together account for 36% of the UK’s total carbon footprint with heating alone in existing buildings resulting in 10% of the nation’s carbon footprint.
To lower the carbon emissions from the built environment, we need major improvements across the property lifecycle – from design, construction and building management. Over the next couple of weeks, we will be hosting our Goal to Net Zero digital event series to discuss how PropTech and ConTech can facilitate a sustainable built environment.
The Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) estimates that around half of all UK emissions can be influenced by construction.
Our Roundtable will discuss the technologies that can help improve construction processes and materials to help achieve UK’s net zero emissions within the next 30 years… Stay tuned for the write up!
