The #BuildingLife project, funded by the IKEA Foundation and Laudes Foundation, is developing an EU Whole Life Carbon Roadmap for the buildings sector, as well as 10 national Whole Life Carbon roadmaps. As part of this project, UKGBC has convened over 70 organisations to co-create a Net Zero Whole Life Carbon Roadmap for the UK built environment, which will be launched on Cities, Regions and Built Environment Day, in the BEIS run UK Pavilion. The Roadmap consists of a net zero trajectory, a set of policy recommendations, and stakeholder actions needed for the UK built environment to reach net zero by 2050.

Please note, to access the UK Pavilion in Glasgow, attendees must have a pass for the Blue Zone. Spaces will be allocated on a first-come-first-served basis. You can also watch virtually at this link
