The Government has set a national target of being net zero carbon by 2050, a move that has prompted the property industry to dramatically overhaul its practices, but is the sector doing enough?
Richard Lewis, technical and quality director at M&E consultancy Davies Partnership – alongside Paul Gerrard, director of developer ForLiving, and Victoria Alderton, director of architect Paddock Johnson – joined Place North West reporter Dan Whelan to discuss how the industry is handling the sustainability challenge.
- What is the property industry doing to reduce carbon emissions in line with Government targets?

- What is embodied carbon and why aren’t we talking about it more?
- How are developers incorporating low carbon technologies into schemes while keeping schemes viable?
