Partnership Length1 year (FY 2024/25)

More widely and rapidly implementing solutions that already exist to the climate and ecological crises is critical to achieving industry goals. However, it can be challenging to keep up with the latest developments and compare options.

  • 4 x online Solution Showcases: interactive events showcasing a variety of innovative solutions available now to support built environment practitioners in addressing sustainability challenges.  
  • Sustainable solutions trends 2024: research output tracking key trends in sustainable solutions across the built environment, placing them in the context of an evolving sustainability landscape, and horizon-scanning for emerging areas of interest.

  • Source, profile, and scale-up the implementation of market-ready solutions to the most pressing sustainability challenges within the built environment. 
  • Showcase exemplary case studies that highlight progressive approaches and achievements of UKGBC members.
