The Challenge


If we are going to meet the environmental targets set at COP 26, everyone needs to change their behaviour and their mindset when it comes to designing, constructing, adapting, and renovating buildings.

We will look to the broader economy to consider the wider climate risks and associated opportunities.

The UK built environment sector is responsible for 40% of the UK’s carbon; and we need to focus an all areas including reducing a building’s energy usage and its embodied carbon to minimise the impact of the sector. As an industry, we are ideally placed to make a real difference. But how do we meet the challenges?


Discussions & Insights


CABE’s Annual Conference and exhibition will explore the current environmental challenges that the industry is facing, bringing speakers including climatologists, government advisors and industry experts together to explore best practice, delving in to legislative changes and what they mean for you.
