Simon Sturgis, Managing Director of SCP, will be speaking at the UKGBC event ‘Advancing Net Zero: next steps in holistic carbon reductions’ on 19th April. Other speakers include Ed Dixon, Landsec, James Fiske, RICS and Natalia Ford, UKGBC.
‘With an overall goal to be net zero carbon shortly after 2050, the built environment is currently at a tipping point. Despite having more consistency in measurement and assessment, a variety of processes and tools available to measure, case studies from which to learn, and increasing knowledge around embedding whole life carbon thinking into projects and organisations, the issue of net zero carbon can still be unclear. This event will discuss why it is still not a mainstream issue and where we are going wrong.’
More details can be found here.
Date: Thursday, 19th April
Time: 9.30am – 4.30pm
Location: Saint-Gobain Innovation Centre, 95 Great Portland Street, London, W1W 7NY

Simon will also be chairing a session on Thursday March 8th at 10:30 Energy & HVAC:
‘Whole Life Carbon demystified – new Practical Guidance from both RIBA and RICS’
Whole Life carbon as an issue has been evolving for some years. Now there is proper guidance and a methodology for reliable measurement from RICS with the RIBA providing parallel advice for the RIBA stages. This will enable the built environment industry to fully engage with carbon reductions in a comprehensive way. Building designers will need to think about the sourcing and fabrication processes of the buildings they design, as well as the long-term consequences of their design decisions. These issues are now part of the RIBA Awards requirements, and will soon be included in the Plan of Work. Whole Life carbon and resource efficiency are about to become mainstream.
