Using sustainable materials

WATCH AGAIN

This webinar focused on circular and sustainable materials with an emphasis on homegrown materials to show the positive impact they can have on the embodied carbon profile of a building.

The audience was provided with a general understanding of these materials and their benefits, with topics including:

  • An overview of sustainable materials
  • Understanding of embodied carbon and why it is important.
  • Learning from the challenges of a real-life example

Our expert speakers also highlighted the alternative options to common insulation types and the wider retrofit and new build design considerations at specification stage.

Crucially, the panel also discussed the challenges required to reduce embodied and operational carbon and develop the new skills that will be needed to construct net zero buildings.
