Week 2: Cases
In this week, we explore good practice examples, specific case studies and take a look at different building typologies, we will learn from each other as to key challenges as well as what your business is doing to ‘build green’.
Week 3: Action
This action week is about the key challenge – how we get to net zero. This would be as applied to your own business, project or building.
