How can developers and investors decarbonize construction? (repeated event)

This event focuses on the unique opportunity that developers and investors have to shape demand and drive transformation in the construction sector.

A large part of the construction sector’s emissions come from building products and materials – referred to as embodied carbon. Embodied carbon is increasingly becoming the focus of regulatory bodies, making it a risk factor for developers and investors to price into construction projects.

Building on the key findings from the recently published WBCSD report “Decarbonizing construction: Guidance for investors and developers to reduce embodied carbon,” the event will highlight practical steps for financial actors to decarbonize construction projects.

We will discuss specific carbon reduction measures such as internal embodied carbon policies and processes, project targets and transparency requirements, circularity principles, design for materials efficiency and low carbon procurement.

The event is co-organized by WBCSD and One Click LCA.

Two sessions are organised to cater to different time zones: 

  • 2 September, 4:00 – 5:00 pm
  • 10 September, 09:00 – 10:00 am
