Net Zero Whole Life Carbon Roadmap: What, When, Who and How
In November 2021, UKGBC launched the Net Zero Whole Life Carbon Roadmap at COP26, a common vision and agreed actions for achieving net zero carbon in the construction, operation and demolition of buildings and infrastructure in the UK.
Five months post-launch, join some key stakeholders and individuals at UKGBC as we:
- Assess the industry’s response to the roadmap to date and key remaining issues to tackle
- Look forward to the journey ahead, the stakeholder actions plans and promoting dialogue and collaboration to drive transformational change through net zero commitments
- Explore key policy asks from Government and how the industry can support the changes needed
This event will highlight next steps for the industry in this critical decade of action, and how we can ensure the milestones and actions detailed in the Roadmap are achieved. The interactive format will enable guests to leave the event with an understanding of the next steps they can practically take to deliver a net zero built environment and what UKGBC will be doing to support them.
This is your opportunity to have your questions answered live so please come prepared with questions for our panelists. To access the launch event recording from December, please see here.
