Global Dialogues for a Sustainable Built Environment
In Sep 2021, the Ecological Environment Building Materials Branch of the China Building Materials Association and Arcas & Callisto Consulting jointly organized the first live broadcast of a series of experts' face-to-face forums on the carbon neutrality of the building materials industry and carbon reduction technology of building materials.
This year, in 2022, A&C would like to continuously facilitate collaboration and engagement between the UK, EU, and China, to jointly create a greener building industry. With the Ecological Environment Building Materials Branch of the China Building Materials Association, we co-host Experts On 2022: Global Dialogues for a Sustainable Built Environment Webinar Series. This series has been providing global perspectives on reducing carbon emissions and improving sustainability in the built environment.
In June 2019, the UK became the first major economy to pass legislation that commits the country to net zero emissions by 2050. And in 2020, China officially announced the plan for carbon neutralisation, setting the goal of achieving carbon neutralisation in 2060. Carbon neutralisation is a mission of the entire humanity, and it is of great significance and a huge benefit for countries to share experiences and learning and achieve this goal together. The construction industry has been one of the biggest contributors to carbon emission, and as a result, held the most responsibility for reaching carbon neutralisation. The “Experts on” webinar series aims at exchanging expertise, promoting new technologies, and raising awareness amongst all professionals in the construction industry, to facilitate the process of achieving carbon zero through collaboration.
This year, the focus is on low-carbon building product design, innovative building materials, and C&D waste recycling.
