How to succeed in the race to net zero carbon buildings

About this event

Architects have acknowledged that they need to reduce embodied carbon by at least 40% before offsetting, for projects in operation in 2030*, which represents a massive challenge. Architects, designers and leading players in the building industry have legitimate questions concerning the best path to net zero carbon interiors.
