Race to zero: Decarbonising the built environment

Race to Zero: Decarbonising the built environment

Watch the webinar now


13 October 2021

Buildings are responsible for 28% of energy-related CO2 emissions*.  A sustainable real estate industry is therefore essential to achieving the goals set out in the Paris Agreement on climate change. The UK, EU, US and many others are targeting carbon neutrality by 2050. The World Green Building Council’s Net Zero Carbon Buildings Commitment is even more ambitious: carbon neutrality by 2030 for all assets under participants’ direct control. How can real estate investors, owners, firms and occupiers meet their net zero carbon obligations, and what are the advantages of a “sooner rather than later” approach?

Moderator:

  • Ken Creighton, Director of Thought Leadership and Public Affairs, RICS

Panellists will include:

  • Phil McNally, Senior Researcher on Net Zero, Tony Blair Institute
  • Nathan Doughty, CEO ASITE
  • Nidhi Baiswar, Sustainability and Climate Leadership Director, JLL

*International Energy Agency estimates
