On Tuesday 26th April 2022 at 08:30, Copper Consultancy, specialists in communication and engagement, will be hosting ‘Net zero: A Material Consideration’, a panel discussion and networking breakfast for industry leaders in infrastructure and construction, to address key issues in the transition towards Net Zero. 

Hosted at The Building Centre in London, the free-to-attend event is set to attract talent and industry voices from experts in architecture, design, construction, product manufacturing, and multi-disciplinaries.  

The purpose of the event is to bring together representatives from leading organisations to generate tangible recommendations and come together to discuss best practice, lessons learned and recent innovations. This session will help to drive forward the debate and discussion on methods and tactics for achieving Net Zero. 

The panel session will be chaired by Belinda Gordon, Strategy Director at The Green Alliance. Belinda will be joined by James Woodall, Head of Sustainability at Allies and Morrison, and Marian Garfield, Director of Sustainability at Hanson UK Ltd. Additional panellists will be named closer to the event.  

The panel will consider some of the ways in which the built environment can address net zero carbon and explore the steps the industry is taking to increase the circularity of the construction industry economy.  

Ben Heatley, Managing Partner at Copper Consultancy, commented: “According to the World Green Building Council, buildings are currently responsible for 39% of global energy related carbon emissions: 28% from operational emissions, from energy needed to heat, cool and power them, and the remaining 11% from materials and construction.  

“Driving down these emissions is front and centre of discussion and debate in our sector. Understanding what we can do to achieve the dramatic reductions in embodied carbon that are required to meet our ambitious net zero goals can help all players – from materials providers to design consultants, to map out a path to a low carbon future that delivers for people and place and returns a positive ROI.”
