64 per cent of occupiers, surveyed* by property consultants GVA Grimley and the CBI, put energy and water-efficiency top of their agenda when looking at their property requirements over the next five years. A massive 91 per cent of occupiers are extremely concerned at the possibility of future increases in energy prices. The survey shows that occupiers are prepared to pay more for 'green' buildings; but are developers and designers creating the workspaces that will deliver the economical, healthy and friendly environments that the occupiers want?

This debate will bring together speakers from leading companies that are looking at the environmental design of the spaces in which we work to find out what really delivers a 'green' building with environmental and economic integrity and social sustainability.

Speakers include:

Stuart Morley, Partner and Head of Research, GVA Grimley; Nigel Oseland, Director of Consultancy, Swanke Hayden Connell Architects on the Work/life balance; Paul Harrington, Real Estate Director, PricewaterhouseCoopers and Chair of the BCO Occupier Committee on Corporate Social Responsibility; Paul Appleby, Associate Director, Building Sustainability Unit, URS Corporation Ltd on Sustainable Construction in the 'Green' Mix; Paul Burgess, Head of London Leasing, British Land on Business Implications of Going 'Green'; Chaired by Matt Yeoman, Partner, Buckley Gray Yeoman, Architects
