Technical Director, Stephen Beggs presents this live CPD webinar with Q&A on using carbon as a new currency in the construction industry, with 7 practical steps on how to achieve carbon reduction in building design.
On the topic of carbon as a new currency for construction, Stephen Beggs, Technical Director at Curtins, will discuss why we need to act, compare our personal and professional carbon impacts, demonstrate the tools Curtins has developed to measure carbon and set out practical steps for reducing our impacts.
During the 45-minute presentation, the notion of ‘carbon as a currency’ will be introduced and compared with our other currencies of cost, quality and time. The session closes by considering the resolutions we all need to make to accomplish real change.
