The built environment accounts for around 40% of total global emissions and now in light of the current pandemic, the spaces we occupy are also a focal point for regeneration and recovery efforts.  Retrofitting and building properties that are climate friendly and healthy presents us with new challenges and new opportunities.   

Our ways of working are going to change markedly from pre-pandemic times, with many employers and employees seeing the benefits of increased hybrid working. Already many leading corporates are in the process of reducing their floorspace. What does this mean for our decarbonization goals and achieving Net Zero? Can we use smart tech in buildings to improve energy productivity, as well as staff productivity? 

This event answers: 

  • What does the future of the office look like with increased flexible/hybrid working? 

  • How can smart tech enable the safe return to workplaces? 

  • How can digital buildings provide data to improve business efficiencies and enhance staff wellbeing and productivity? 

  • What does this mean for our building decarbonization plans? 

  • What do companies need to think about to ensure they are ahead on these practices to gain competitive advantage, as well as attract and retain talent? 

  • What does this mean for Operational Decarbonization in buildings? (Operational carbon, the emission of carbon during a building’s operations, accounts for 28% of carbon global carbon emissions)
