COP26: Zero Embodied Carbon

Net Zero carbon and climate change are the two most compelling issues of our time. The built environment has a significant role to play and should demonstrate leadership by setting and delivering against ambitious climate commitments. This leadership will be crucial for the UK to reach its Net Zero target.

In the run-up to COP26 in Glasgow, the BCO is holding a series of events exploring future best practice for office buildings. This hybrid event will held in Birmingham with virtual attendance from around the UK, and will explore the future of offices from an Embodied Carbon perspective. Embodied carbon now constitutes a large proportion of the overall carbon footprint of any new office building, and has become more significant as operational carbon levels have reduced.

The key-note introduction to the topic will be by Simon Sturgis of Targeting Zero. The panel discussion will include a case study of 3 Chamberlain Square, where MEPC (ex Argent) are delivering a low-carbon office building, with presentations from the architect (FCBS) and engineers (Cundall).

Join us and the debate on 14 October at 8am.
