While the built environment is a major contributor to greenhouse gas emissions and environmental impact, that also means there is huge potential for the changes we make to be a force for good – building back better and greener.
With the government being clear that tackling climate change is a top priority this panel will discuss and debate how the UK public estate will play a significant role in the country’s journey towards net zero and enhancing the sustainability of our built environment.
Areas for discussion:
In this discussion we will discuss:
In this session delegates will hear from leaders across various government departments about future approaches to procuring work, disposing of sites and modernising existing estate.
DWP is one of the largest government departments and accounts for 20% of the government estate. In this case study session we will explore and hear about their journey and how they are taking action with regards to sustainability against the government’s green commitments and continuing expansion of their property portfolio.
Procuring sustainable technologies that drive transformation – CCS procurement frameworks have long been providing a trusted and value for money purchasing platform used extensively throughout the public sector. In this session we will explore how access to sustainable technology providers can help organisations deliver on their zero carbon commitments
