Tuesday, 22nd June 2021 0900hrs – 1430hrs

This conference will focus on how we as an industry can help tackle the climate emergency and build a better, more sustainable UK.

From major large scale regeneration projects to the biggest of infrastructure schemes – we’ll be looking at the future plans and how sustainability and environmental concern will be at the heart of these plans, and how that will filter down to the supply chain and delivery partners.

 Topics to be discussed include:

  • Great Portland Estates zero carbon future

  • FEC’s £4bn North Manchester neighbourhood
  • Argent’s zero carbon plans for their development
