“Humanity is on thin ice – and that ice is melting fast,” said António Guterres, Secretary-General of the United Nations, in response to an Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change report into the climate crisis in March this year.
Despite the gravity of this message, the report was not without hope. Crucially it stated that, while the aim of limiting global warming (to 1.5°C above pre-industrial levels) is becoming more difficult by the day, it is not yet impossible.
In this context, this CPD Live session focuses on one specific piece of the climate puzzle – the Australian construction industry.
Identifying key strategies – such as the use of benchmarking to guide low embodied carbon design, the use of circular economy design principles to achieve deep embodied carbon mitigation, and more – our speakers explain why is it reasonable to believe our built environment could, itself, achieve net zero by 2040; and play its role in ensuring the broader global community meets its 1.5°C goal.
