Buildings are the UK's second highest emitting sector, accounting for around 17% of total carbon emissions and, while improvements in building performance have been made, recent progress has stalled towards meeting Net Zero. With looming carbon targets and the impacts of climate change already being felt, significant and comprehensive action needs to be taken now.
This session explores how can Smart Buildings solutions will help us to reach Net Zero operational performance and limit the impact on whole life cycle emissions.
