Carbon Reduction is currently a hot topic among sustainability professionals in the Higher Education Sector with many universities aiming to reach zero carbon in the next 20 years. Reaching these targets will require new and innovative approaches to both new build design and major renovations of existing historic buildings. Universities will not be able to make this necessary dramatic shift without significant help from leaders in zero carbon architecture, consultation, design and evaluation.
This is why the University of London held a one-day Zero Carbon Challenge conference, bringing these experts together with sustainability and capital projects professionals from universities right across the UK. Following the event, the University of London are producing a report summarising everything discussed during the day to share the learning among all the attendees.
