Robinson College, Cambridge
The climate emergency is the greatest threat facing humanity. Challenging it will require society to make major changes to our lives, including in the way that the construction industry operates. We will need to rapidly transform the way we do things so that all new buildings create minimal greenhouse emissions during construction and can operate at net zero emissions.
Doing so will require us to face head on a number of regulatory, political, and technical challenges. This half day symposium will examine these issues and is designed to help participants from the construction industry, councils and the community, gain new insights into how zero carbon standards and client aspirations will impact the built environment sector.
We are delighted to have assembled a very strong line-up of industry experts to contribute to this half-day conference. The conference is supported by the City Council and South Cambridgeshire District Council, and organised together with Carbon Neutral Cambridge. There will be ample opportunity for networking and for meeting the speakers.
Early booking is recommended for what looks likely to be a very popular event!
