According to the most recent report by the IPCC, the time for climate action has well and truly arrived. Without immediate global action, the report says, the aim of limiting warming to even 2°C will not be possible. Indeed as it stands, even if current emission reduction pledges are met, temperatures are set to rise by more than 3°C.
While the climate emergency affects us all, regardless of nationality or occupation, it is of particular relevance to those associated with construction. The sector’s high carbon emissions mark it as a major part of the problem.
Of course, by now this notion is uncontroversial and architects broadly accept the need for change. However, it’s when you drill down to specifics that things get difficult. When you start to ask questions around material selection and which stage of projects is most critical in terms of low carbon design, many still require assistance.
This session is intended to provide this assistance; to outline ways for architects to research and select lower embodied carbon materials and explain how they can best incorporate those materials into low carbon designs.

We believe property is a key contributor to global ecological stress and must lead mitigation action, and that a more efficient property sector is good for the planet and society. Our purpose is to enable the property and construction industry to deliver Net Zero Carbon by 2040. We do this by reducing the cost and complexity of achieving Net Zero carbon design, synthesising the latest research and delivering it in a way that is simple to understand and ready-to-use.

According to Le Corbusier, the struggle for it underpins the history of architecture. Frank Lloyd Wright described it as a “beautifier of buildings”. And Motoko Ishii famously equated it to life itself. Indispensable, life-affirming and metamorphic, light underpins all architectural and design efforts.
