Building Interest – Autumn 2021


Share

Welcome to our special COP26 focussed edition of Building Interest.

Since the United Nation's 26th global climate conference, there has never been a more pressing time to focus on how the built environment can contribute to mitigating climate change. 

World leaders, climate experts and negotiators gathered in Glasgow, with the aim of developing a response to the climate emergency through mitigation, adaptation, mobilising finance and collaboration. Ambitious action is required in order to meet the commitments under the Paris Agreement, seeking to limit global warming to 1.5 degrees. The built environment has a crucial role to play in the transition to Net Zero, being responsible for around 40% of the UK's total emissions. Designing and building more efficient buildings, and retrofitting existing buildings, is vital to both reducing emissions and adapting to the inevitable impact of climate change. 

Whether reducing carbon in construction, examining building performance or embracing new technologies, everyone has a role to play in the transition to Net Zero. But how does this work in practice?

In this edition we look at the following topics set out below for further insight:
