A Green Future for the Built Environment! Targets, Metrics, Holistics.

How  far are we down the zero carbon road? Join this one-day RIBAJ Conference supported by Arup Associates and take a step back from the sustainability frenzy to look at the bigger picture. Are our regulatory targets not only realisable but under achieving?  What criteria should form the true measure of sustainability? And can joined-up thinking create a new green paradigm?

Questions that the day will aim to answer include: 

  • Zero carbon -  how far do we have to go and how do we get there?
  • What metrics can and should we now be using?
  • What is the best way to measure sustainability?
  • What is best practice in sustainability in commercial buildings?
  • What is best practice for sustainable, green housing?
  • How can the industry adapt to Climate Change?
  • What is the importance of ‘well being’ to the sustainability debate?
  • What is green design and what are the steps to achieving it?
