Urbano Network is committed to helping our members become Zero Carbon businesses actively responding the ever-real threat of environmental changes for us and future generations. Our October event was held with the UK Green Building Council (UKGBC) and examined their ‘Net Zero Carbon Buildings: A Framework Definition’. This report was the fruit of work of an industry-wide task group which included Urbano members.
For our first speaker event in 2020 we are delighted to welcome Isabel McAllister, Mace Group's Director of Business Responsibility who drives their sustainability agenda including their programme to address the challenges of Net Zero Carbon in Construction. Mace was the first construction company to sign up to RE100, committing to using 100% renewable energy by 2020. At this event we will hear from Isabel more about Mace's mandate and progress, and their vision for construction to be a beacon to other industries of how to deliver energy intensive activities in a sustainable way whilst also being a responsible business.
