Solutions to decarbonize the built environment
The focus of this event is to discuss solutions for the built environment, especially the buildings sector, to allow for resilience but also mitigation of climate change within urban settings, so as to reduce the overall impact of these. We will engage with a panel representing business, NGO, cities and investors, to highlight the technologies that exist, but also the barriers - structural and legal - that impede their rapid uptake and use. We will discuss the biggest blocks and how some of them may be overturned.
The participants will bring to bear their own experiences and those of their organizations, including the efforts they are taking to reduce their environmental footprint, and how these different entities can reduce a cities impact on overall environmental footprint.
