Innovation and collaboration for the Net Zero transition: Construction

Hero image of the event for 21st of November 2023

The launch of the Transition Plan Taskforce (TPT) Disclosure Framework is setting a standard for the development and disclosure of transition plans that credibly lay out how a company will achieve its climate goals and ambitions. At the heart of this is the strategy and implementation plan needed to meet decarbonisation targets and address the risks and opportunities posed by climate change.

The radical reduction in emissions needed within this decade will require companies to adapt their business models as well as to think systemically: Working with suppliers, partners and customers on the transition journey – as well effectively engaging with policymakers and key influencers.

Collaboration and innovation will be essential to drive change at the speed and scale needed, and stakeholders will expect to see this reflected within Net Zero transition plans. This is of clear importance within the construction, property and infrastructure sector value chain where the emissions impact of design, build and materials is high.

Join the Carbon Trust experts, clients and partners at our industry briefing and panel session to:

  • Examine how business model and systemic levers can be harnessed to accelerate decarbonisation and innovation at scale.
  • Learn how to build effective industry collaboration models, based on live examples and initiatives.
  • Explore how these initiatives can be supported, implemented, and financed.

The planned agenda will include:

  • Keynote presentation on Net Zero transition planning and innovation
  • Panel conversation and Q&A: Guest panellists will share insights on key success factors and models for collaboration and innovation
  • Audience roundtable discussions
  • Coffee and networking

We are pleased to welcome the following speakers;
