This is the 2nd of three sessions on the role we can all play around Climate Change and working towards Net Zero, from 2021 – 2030 (the climate decade) and beyond to the global goal of net zero by 2050.
Delivery of Net Zero is a business-wide responsibility, and with 40% of all UK emissions linked to construction, we all need to make it our business to meet the net zero challenge.

Kevin Smith (Angus Council) and Dr Rebecca Wade (Abertay University) will host a panel of industry speakers who will share their corporate commitment to #NetZero. You will also hear about what is already happening within the industry in Scotland, and beyond.

In these webinars we will keep asking you the question posed by ICE President Rachel Skinner – What Are YOU Going To Do?

Join us to get informed and be inspired as we spell out some industry plans for ‘shaping zero’.

Look out for follow up and final event on 28 April.

You can join the event up to 10 minutes before the start time of 12.00
