Homes and buildings make up over 20% of our carbon footprint so in this edition we return to see how things are progressing in the built environment with Rodrigo Garcia from specialist environmental consultant, Greengage.
Rodrigo shares the rapid change in regulations alongside the increasing appetite to reach net zero. We discuss how to balance these with the increasing demands being made on the development sector to resolve a range of issues from infrastructure to design, carbon footprint to affordable homes. We also hear about the impact of technology maturing and how the normalising of net zero is changing the opportunity to reduce our environmental impact.
We also take the opportunity to catch up on the Prime Minister’s reshuffle, Bill Gates and rather a surprising climate hero!
