Day 1. 8 Less talk, a little more action – time to embed the SDGs
This panel discussion explores the reality of not only implementing net zero but how sustainability can be ‘mainstreamed’ across development. With much talk around the race to net zero, social value, the SDGs and ESG, it is time to understand what the innovators in UK business are actually doing about it. The discussion will cover what UK business is actively doing to deliver net zero, right here, right now. You will learn how the UN SDGs can be incorporated into residential and commercial development. You will also understand the strategic and tangible steps to transition to net-zero, the innovation and economic opportunities derived from positive market disruption of mainstreaming sustainability in a post Covid environment. Including potential of sharing innovation and learnings, to achieve net zero and sustainable growth by 2030 & 2050.
