18 November: Understanding Sustainability in Construction
Understanding Sustainability in Construction
Thursday 18 November
9:30am – 10:30am
As COP26 continues, we are being increasingly bombarded with a plethora of information pouring out of different construction bodies around COP26, alongside a host of terms such as retrofit, circular economy, and sustainability. And this is before we get behind the science of net-zero carbon and how to actually start on the pathway as individuals and companies.
In this Urbano Network event, Penny Gowler, Elliott Wood’s Head of Sustainability, will bring clarity for those of us who are not technical experts, including those who commission construction projects, such as landowners, developers and investors, as well as those who want to bring their own construction-sector companies in line with latest best practice and guidance.
