78% of the audience who attended the IoD City of London Property Special Interest Group’s webinar on 8th October — ‘Property Going Zero Carbon: The Impact’ — think that property going zero carbon is achievable.
This was the result of a Zoom poll of the 100+ attendees on the night, and it highlighted the progress that has been made in the property and construction industry as new approaches and products to help the built environment ‘go green’ are developed.
The event was sponsored by Green Towers, a technology and boutique development company specialising in sustainable residential high-rises and led by CEO Roland Weber, who gave a short presentation.
They developed the first fully glazed tall-building façade which has qualified for Passive House, saving 80% of the energy and 50% of the carbon footprint compared to typical new high-rises.
Further insightful contributions were made by our high-calibre panel of experts:
• Katy Warrick, Head of London Residential Research at estate agents and property consultants, Savills
• Alan Fogarty, Partner and head of specialist environmental building physics group at consulting engineers, Cundall
• Riccardo Abello, director with Franklin Real Asset Advisors, part of Franklin Templeton Investments, and a member of the Global Investment Committee
• Rebecca Self, Director of Sustainable Finance at the environmental consultancy, South Pole
