In April, UKGBC launched the Net Zero Carbon Buildings Framework, which was developed with input from 100 built environment organisations and formally supported by 13 trade and professional bodies. This was a timely publication, because in early June, the Government committed to enshrine a net zero carbon target in law, which will shine a spotlight on key areas of the economy that need to deliver a step change in emissions reductions, not least the built environment sector.

With public awareness and business support for climate action at an all time high, we now need to shift from targets to implementation. UKGBC is therefore running a wave of events to bring together groups of businesses committed to taking a leadership position on delivering net zero carbon buildings from across the property value chain. The purpose is to share in-depth insights and experiences that will support the industry in delivering net zero carbon buildings – whether through new build, or major refurbishment.

This roundtable in Manchester is for those who want to demonstrate leadership on the topic, whether as clients, or solutions-providers. We will focus on a small number of case study examples that illustrate particular design solutions, technologies or business models that can play a part in the adoption of the net zero carbon principles outlined in UKGBC’s framework report.
