What can the ACE (architecture, construction & engineering) & transport planning industry do to help tackle climate change? The built environment is responsible for approximately 40% of energy consumption and 36% of CO2 emissions. How can we reduce the environmental impact of buildings & infrastructure and protect from the impacts of climate change that are already occurring? Hear from industry experts on these and the wider environmental challenges including waste, responsible sourcing, repurposing of materials; air quality; green infrastructure and what technologies and solutions will help address them.
