Measuring and Reducing Embodied Carbon in Construction
Wednesday 29th March, 9am – 12pm
The Place Hotel, 34-36 York Place, Edinburgh
At this live panel event, learn how Curtins are measuring and reducing embodied carbon emissions, whilst harnessing the digital space and technologies.
We will be joined by guest speakers, Scottish Futures Trust (SFT) who are leading the embodied carbon targets within the Scottish Government’s Learning Estate Investment Programme.
More about the event
49% of the UK’s annual carbon emissions are attributed to buildings and the construction industry, and over the next 40 years 230 billion square metres of new construction is expected to be built (LETI, 2020).
A huge commitment is required from the UK construction industry through reducing carbon emissions of our construction projects and through government legislation to help keep our planet from heating over 1.5 degrees.
Join us at The Place Hotel in Edinburgh for a live panel event and opportunity to hear from Curtins, on how we are measuring and reducing their embodied carbon emissions; and utilising the digital space to maximise our impact.
Also hear from Scottish Futures Trust on their standards and their key drivers. Curtins has signed up to the IStructE Engineer’s Declare and will present how we are working on live projects to achieve SFT targets.
Complimentary tea, coffee and breakfast will be included in the free admission.
