Transforming our built environment: from net-zero commitments to action is the first of a series of three events hosted by Saint-Gobain & Kite Insights aimed at accelerating a net-zero transition in the built environment sector as we head towards rallying the built environment sector around a common purpose after COP26.
Sustainability leaders in the built environment ecosystem have been reducing their carbon emissions, increasing energy and water efficiency, adopting circular economy principles, and innovating to improve the performance and sustainability of their materials and solutions.
Yet there remains a commitment and action gap for making the transition to net-zero for buildings and the built environment.
This event gathered business leaders, architects, engineers, and sustainability experts with an overarching view of the built environment value chain to explore:
What are leading companies in the built environment value chain doing to achieve net-zero goals?
As we head towards COP26, what is needed to achieve net-zero in this sector at scale?
How can changes in operations, leadership, mindsets and regulation transform the built environment in the race to net zero in ways that deliver healthy and sustainable outcomes for all?
