[Free Webinar] Chasing net-zero buildings/facilities: ‘Old hat’ or chasing the near impossible?

Why is this webinar relevant to you?

Building owners, operators, and managers are increasingly working to create facilities that not only use less energy but those that are carbon neutral releasing zero emissions into the atmosphere.

According to the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), buildings and construction together account for 36% of global final energy use and 39% of energy-related carbon dioxide (CO2).

In its 2017 Global Status Report, UNEP notes that:

“Progress towards sustainable buildings and construction is advancing, but improvements are still not keeping up with a growing buildings sector and rising demand for energy services.”

While there are many pioneering net-zero buildings in major cities across the world, how do businesses, real estate owners and operators apply the net-zero concept at scale? What does this look like in practice? What are the key design and performance-related considerations when planning net-zero buildings – and how do these differ for existing and new buildings?

These are the questions that esteemed speaker, Professor Tony Day, Executive Director at International Energy Research Centre (IERC) will address in a webinar.
