As part of our Value the Planet campaign, we are running a series of webinars hosted by sustainability experts in the Surveying profession.

The future we want to shape: Chartered Surveyors and the UN SDGs

This webinar explains the momentum which has already been developed within the SDG agenda for a sustainable and shared common future for mankind. By creating a deeper understanding of the global context of the UN declaration, and how global policy and action flows down to our land and built environment professional practice, we unpack the detail and enable chartered surveyors to fully understand how their practices contribute to the SDGs and the important global agenda that ‘leaves no body behind’.

SDG 12 - Responsible Consumption & Production

RICS is in the unique position of being  the only profession that is involved in the full extent of the “Property Lifecycle”, from extracting natural resources for construction materials, specifying and utilising those materials in construction, managing our land and buildings and then recycling and reusing demolition wastes.

This Webinar will highlight examples of where RICS Professionals are leading projects aimed at more sustainable resource management within the Circular Economy and explore opportunities for more responsible sourcing of resources and management of wastes.
