Increased awareness of the Climate Emergency has led to a stream of declarations aiming to achieve Net Zero Carbon. We will hear from keynote speakers driving green agendas and sharing how they are ensuring success.
The Committee on Climate Change’s Jenny Hill sets the scene on 2030 targets & what role buildings play. We will hear international experience from municipal authorities delivering at regional scale, while the Trust’s research & Policy Director John Palmer, will bring the focus back to the UK and a zero-carbon roadmap.
Our keynote panel will debate what is required to rapidly industrialise the Passivhaus Standard and ready the construction industry to deliver targets. Explore if there are common catalysts and draw inspiration for how to kick-start a Passivhaus-led zero carbon revolution in your own region.
