The LETI Client Guide: Supporting clients develop & deliver on net zero carbon

02 March / 11:15-12:00

Curated by LETI

Client bodies and their funders remain at the centre of fulfilling the zero carbon vision, capable of empowering or preventing this achievement through the wide number of stakeholders they engage with. The LETI Client Guide for Net Zero Carbon Buildings pulls together key findings and recommendations from numerous best practice sources, covering the ways in which the processes of briefing, design, procurement, construction, occupation, management and valuing of building development must change to fulfill a Zero Carbon vision.
In this session, a number of contributors to the guide will introduce a range of its content, sharing perspectives that informed its development. We will also offer insights around how consultant teams can better engage and influence client bodies towards a Zero Carbon trajectory.

Net zero and natural materials

02 March / 12:15-13:00

Curated by ASBP

Natural materials include timber, hemp, straw, clay and wool and can be used for a wide range of construction applications such as structural elements, insulation and finishes. Interest in these materials continues to grow due to their sustainability credentials including technical performance, lower embodied carbon, health benefits and ability to lock-up carbon during their lifespan. What role do natural materials have to play in delivering net zero buildings, and are there any barriers to their increased uptake?

Integrating water and the built environment to deliver resilience and nature recovery

02 March / 14:15-15:00

Curated by CIWEM

Two major challenges for the built environment are a combination of drought and deluge: Water shortage, especially in some of our areas of highest population density, is a major challenge to manage. Equally, intense as well as prolonged rain events leading to flooding in both winter and summer are becoming more frequent with development potentially bringing more people into flood risk.

A further associated factor is sewage pollution from storm overflows – a range of a result of conspiring, systemic factors. How can integrated water management solutions deliver against these challenges whilst also helping to recover nature?

Chair: Paul Shaffer, Director of Innovation and Delivery, CIWEM

Planning in response to the climate and ecological emergency

02 March / 15:15 - 16:00

Curated by the TCPA

Most local authorities have declared a climate and, often an ecological, emergency. The impacts of these emergencies affect many aspects of our lives including health and wellbeing for ourselves and our environments. Local authorities now need to turn their attention to what this means for them in practice, how will they deliver on these declarations? What should they do in planning? What will be the role of design codes? How will they deliver biodiversity and environmental net gain? All questions for the transformative changes that must take place. This session will explore the issues.

Chair: Julia Thrift, Director – Healthier Placemaking, TCPA


You net gained me - now watch me grow

02 March / 16:15-17:15

Curated by ACO Technologies for ‘Habitat Matters’

Biodiversity Nett Gain increases the prosperity for natural systems whilst simultaneously providing an environment that enhances wellbeing, making it a key driver for new infrastructure development. We must ensure that these benefits are integrated into all elements of society. It is widely known that children with an elevated exposure to nature from a young age have better problem solving skills. This has mobilised the Department for Education to have nature in its draft strategy for sustainability and climate action. Aiming to inspire action for nature, improve local environments and increase access to nature.
