Estimates of the building industry’s contribution to world carbon emissions reach as high as 30% worldwide – with figures on energy consumption in the region of 40%. The need for alternative low energy approaches to building, construction and design are obvious. However, key to a sustainable future are also related social questions.  Badly planned developments can not only lead to the destruction of habitats, they bring unaffordable housing, displaced communities and negative effects on physical health.

Hosted in London, this conference is concerned with sustainability from a variety of perspectives. Some include but are not limited to: sustainable construction; Eco-retrofitting; Resilience; Adapting to climate change; Building sustainability assessment tools; Construction Engineering; Eco-materials and technologies; Life cycle analysis etc.

In the context of a housing crisis and various government initiatives to massively increase housing provision across the UK and elsewhere, it is interested in how this can be done in a sustainable manner.

The conference welcomes international contributions from across sectors, such as: environmental engineers, sustainable architects, urban planners, infrastructure designers, building technologists, policy makers, community representatives and others.
