Learn and Network Summer Soirée UK Net Zero Carbon Buildings Standards Update

Join the Property and Built Environment Group for their summer soiree event!

Sponsored by Carbon Architecture

The UK Net Zero Carbon Buildings Standard is a cross-industry initiative between many of the key industry bodies and professional institutions in the built environment sector which is creating a single, agreed methodology for defining and verifying a net zero building in the UK.

The Standard will enable industry to robustly demonstrate their built assets are net zero carbon and in line with our nation’s climate targets.UK Green Building Council's Senior Advisor on Net Zero Carbon Buildings, Tom Wigg, introduced the Standard to the IoD in October last year.

In this session, Tom will provide an update on the progress that's been made en route to the upcoming launch of the Standard at the end of summer.

This event will be kindly hosted at the Covent Garden studios of Scott Brownrigg, international architects, master planners and interior designers.

After the presentation, we will adjourn to Scott Brownrigg’s lovely central London outdoor terrace (weather permitting) for refreshments, business networking and further discussions.

We look forward to seeing you there!
