LI Webinar: The ethical and sustainable vision – How can a landscape architect adopt this in practice?
A discussion-based webinar involving key individuals from Hardscape’s Sustainable team and landscape stakeholders between whom discuss the approach and relationship between design and sourcing ethical and sustainable materials. The panel will debate what all this means when it comes to specification and the desire to ‘do the right thing’ balanced with time and cost restraints to a specific scheme. Hardscape will highlight other facets of products and its environmental actions to help deliver on the current thinking on SDG principles and necessary actions to be taken thereafter.
It will explore what the benefits are and how designers within the landscape architecture profession should utilise the information and knowledge in their collaborative relationships within the placemaking environment. The discussion will also cover Hardscape’s goals and ambitions too with the SDG agenda and how they have re-modelled the scope of their goals and KPIs and are expediting actions to meet specific SDG business commitments to achieve carbon neutrality by 2030.
As huge supporters of the Landscape Institute we recognise that the collective voice is one thing, but actual action collaboratively will enhance and deliver on our mutual carbon ambitions and “must take” steps in all areas of relevant project delivery at micro and macro levels.
Covid-19 has allowed us all to think about what we do in a completely different way. Hardscape are continually developing carbon-reduced products and solutions for the shared space environment but Zero Carbon ambitions come at a price and for that endeavour we must all be prepared to embrace and pay for ultimately, suppliers and consumers alike.
- An understanding of the relationship between design and sourcing ethical and sustainable materials.
- How designers can utilise this information and knowledge in their collaborative relationships within the placemaking environment.
- An overview on the current thinking on Sustainable Development Goals principles and necessary actions that can be implemented into working practice.
