Climate & the built environment

What do owners of commercial property need to be thinking about now in light of market and regulatory change?

The UK is the first major economy to pass a net-zero emissions law pledging to achieve net-zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050, and the built environment has a very big part to play, contributing about 40% to the UK’s total carbon footprint.

But what does this mean in practical terms to owners of commercial property?

In September a group of panellists discussed the key areas that commercial property owners need to be thinking about at Natwest’s Climate & the built environment’ webinar. Crown Workspace’s Head of Sustainable Development, Ann Beavis spoke about the role circular economy can play in the drive to achieve net-zero.

The guests included:

Simon Peacock,  Head of South & Wales and Project Management UK Regions JLL

Craig Moore, Partner, Womble Bond Dickinson (UK) LLP

Ann Beavis, Head of Sustainable Development, Crown Workspace

The webinar covered market trends, impact on values, legislation changes and case studies, as well as strategies that you should be considering, and practical measures in terms of retrofit, which is particularly challenging.
