Developers and public sector clients increasingly want to be able to promote the Net Zero credentials of any built environment project.  The first part of this event will consider what this means in practice and the role of the consultant in Net Zero project delivery.
The practical reality of a local authority’s journey to Net Zero may include using consultants and contractors in the context of carbon reduction obligations on a project. When and why might this happen? In the second section we will look at how consultants and contractors can provide value to this process as well as the changing nature of what may be expected of them in securing work.

This webinar will start at 13:00
