Join RTPI, RICS, CIOB, RIBA, Women in Property & LISE as we discuss the future of the built environment

By 2050, our sector needs to reduce its carbon emissions by 84 billion tonnes. It’s a big challenge, but the industry is responding.

The World Green Building Council (WGBC) and International Energy Agency have estimated that, to limit global warming to less than 2°C, the built environment sector needs to cut its carbon footprint by 84 billion tonnes. Emissions from existing stock must be reduced by 80%, and all new development must be net zero energy by 2050.

Meeting those targets would require a radical rethink, not just of how we build and refurbish, but also of hoare funded, valued, procured and manageOur panel will discuss the opportunities, challenges and expectations for our sector and how we can make a difference to the future of our planet.
