Event taking place on Wednesday 12th January 2022, 2-3.30pm

UKGBC has an expanding community of Innovative Start-Up Members, who we bring together through this Forum intending to:

  • Create a supportive community of peers to explore challenges they share and the potential solutions to them. 
  • Connect Innovative Start-Up members with the wider UKGBC corporate membership, facilitating knowledge sharing and network-building.
  • Proactively engage start-ups in UKGBC activities.
  • Help profile and scale purpose-driven innovators operating in the built environment.

The Forum is a collaborative and informal space, with meetings held on a quarterly basis open to all UKGBC Innovative Start-Up members. On an invite-only basis we also welcome involvement from the wider UKGBC membership. Our January Forum will welcome select individuals working in real estate development and investment from the UKGBC Membership as guests:

  • Giorgia Franco: Head of Sustainability, Berkeley Homes (East Thames)
  • Sam Szczurek: Innovation and Sustainability Lead, Transport for London
  • Alex Edds: Director of Innovation, JLL
  • James Manning: Senior Transformation Manager – Sustainability & Innovation, Grosvenor Britain & Ireland
