‘Capturing the Value of Sustainability’ is the next stage of work UKGBC has undertaken on creating the business case for sustainability.

This launch event will present the findings of the research and will feature an interactive panel debate with business leaders from the built environment sector. The panel will be chaired by Alastair Mant, Head of Industry Engagement, UKGBC and there will be time for questions from the audience.
