Construction’s Carbon Dilemma: Why, When & How?

Virtual Event | 26 May 2021

06:00 - 11:00 EDT

The environment we are facing today means that the way we see homes, and the role they play in our everyday lives, is forever changing.  


Sustainability and climate change continue to be key topics within the construction industry globally. The UK Government has set out to achieve an 80% reduction in greenhouse emissions by 2050. It is estimated that 25% of carbon emissions come from homes and a further 17% from non-domestic buildings, so a decision was been made to improve energy efficiency in every household.


But why are considering embodied carbon and carbon during occupancy so important? How can the construction industry make an impact? 


We seek to uncover the answers to these questions in our virtual event focused on why carbon consideration is so important, when you can make a difference and how you can take practical steps toward carbon reduction. 


In the UK, whilst most of the industry are committed to the ambitious environmental goals set by the Government, others are concerned the goal is not a net zero carbon target and that the advancement of technology needed to reach the goals will not be adopted fast enough.
