There are two dominant narratives in the commercial property world; one is healthy buildings focussing on hygiene and ventilation in particular; and the second is the global crisis around climate change with significant action required before 2030.

Typically both of these agendas are a conflict for building operators as often increased ventilation or systems required to improve humidity draw additional power, and therefore contradict the drive to reduce consumption.

This panel aims to explore these challenges and how building managers, property owners and occupiers can work together to address objectives in both of these important areas.
