The UK has set a legally binding target of net zero emissions by 2050. Emissions from buildings account for a significant proportion of the UK’s total, and therefore improving their performance and lowering their emissions is crucial for meeting this target. Cities such as Manchester and London have set highly ambitious target of 2028 and 2030 respectively for new buildings to be net zero.
What does this mean for our facades? How will these changes affect façade design and the materials we can use? We have three speakers from different parts of the industry to talk about this hugely important topic and the challenges (and opportunities) it will present.
· John Downes, Lendlease
· Damian Rogan, Eckersley O’Callaghan
· Stefan Rohrmus, Schueco
