As part of COP26, The Green Register is excited to be contributing to an important event hosted in Glasgow by Habitat for Humanity GB on 11th November: Towards Net Zero Cities Through Green Retrofit/Renovation of Empty Spaces
In collaboration with
The UK government has turned their focus recently on to embodied carbon in buildings and tackling the greater carbon impact of our buildings, rather than just the in use emissions. That can be a monumental task, how can one identify the carbon costs of mining, processing and transportation of materials? Does a timber double glazed window have a greater carbon cost if it is made of oak or made of pine? Is cladding better environmentally if it is green larch, or rendered woodfibre?
Our partner organisation the Good Homes Alliance is offering 10 FREE tickets to Green Register members for the opening session of their upcoming online conference series which kicks off with The Big Net Zero Debate on Tuesday 5th October, 1-3pm.
The session features industry experts from TOWN, Green Construction Board, Cambridge City Council, Pollard Thomas Edwards Architects and Building Performance Network posing the key questions facing net zero housing regarding policy, planning, development, design and building performance.
“Without a competent workforce, no amount of building regulations will get us to where we need to be to meet Bristol City Council’s carbon neutrality goals by 2030.”
Yesterday The Green Register hosted the first in our Twilight Talks series of free-to-join events. Futuregrid explored the rapid changes required from our electricity grid, our infrastructure and homes as sustainable electric vehicles become commonplace. We welcomed speakers Peter White from Western Power, Lloyd Allen from Bristol City Council and Ben Pearson, electrical contractor with Tundra for the inside track on the power revolution plus updates on the developments happening now and in the near future.
