Ecobuild

London, UK
Tuesday 06th March 2018 to Thursday 08th March 2018

Ecobuild has been the "number one" event for the built environment for over 14 years, with change and innovation always at the heart. It connects and inspires the entire built environment specification chain.

WorldGBC's Advancing Net Zero Project Manager Victoria Burrows will feature in the following session:

Day 1: Tuesday 6 March 2018
Time: 17:00-18:00

Session: Advancing Net Zero - can all buildings be net zero carbon by 2050 and all new build by 2030?

Every building in the world must attain ‘net zero carbon’ by 2050 if the effects of global warming are to be limited below 2 degrees centigrade explains the World Green Building Council in “From Thousands to Billions - Coordinated Action towards 100% Net Zero Carbon Buildings By 2050”. This calls for a completely zero carbon built environment with all new buildings operating at net zero carbon by 2030 and all buildings operating at net zero carbon by 2050 which will also involve an ambitious retrofit programme for both commercial and domestic buildings. Regardless of the uncertainties of Brexit and regulatory requirements, we must prioritise achieving these goals. Who are the critical players? What are the key barriers and opportunities? This session will investigate. We will invite the audience to contribute their own suggestions and by the session end we will identify three key recommendations as the most universally applicable.

Chair: Victoria Burrows, Project Manager, Advancing Net Zero, World Green Building Council

Panellists: 

  • Farhana Yamin, Founder and CEO, Track O and co-author of Who's getting ready for zero?
  • Chris Jofeh, Director, Global Buildings Retrofit, Arup
  • Dr Mike Murray, Consultant, Fulcro Engineering Service
  • Simon Sturgis, Managing Director, Sturgis Carbon Profiling
  • Clara Bagenal George, Environmental Design Engineer, Elementa and winner of the UKGBC Rising star award
