Now available on-demand: edie’s webinar on net-zero buildings

Registration is free and is now open

On Tuesday 20 September, hot on the heels of World Green Building Week, edie partnered with Kingspan to run a free-to-attend, hour-long webinar on ‘Building for Net-Zero: Decarbonising the Built Environment Value Chain’.  

This session is now available on-demand. Watch it back to view exclusive presentations from experts, plus revisit a live Q and A segment. If you are unable to tune-in during the event, register for access to a recording that will be made available on-demand after the webinar.

Globally, the global built environment is responsible for almost 40% of global energy-related carbon emissions and 50% of extracted materials. And, with rapid urbanisation and escalating climate change placing huge demands on our building infrastructure, it’s clear that we must move from ambition into action when it comes to achieving a net zero carbon, healthy, equitable and resilient built environment.

This edie webinar, hosted in association with Kingspan, convened designers and architects, contractors and end-user businesses to showcase how we can deliver real carbon reduction across the built environment value chain.

Joining us for this webinar were Kingspan Insulated Panels’ director of sustainability for North America, Brent Trenga; Clayco’s vice-president of sustainability, Ryan Spies; Mott MacDonald’s technical director, Eszter Gulacsy, and Grosvenor Group’s director of climate-positive solutions, Andy Haigh.
