About the Event

A propos de l'événement

Buildings are currently responsible for 39% of global energy related carbon emissions: 28% from operational emissions, from energy needed to heat, cool and power them, and the remaining 11% from materials and construction.” - World Green Building Council.

Over the past 3-5 years, we have seen a rise in global ESG reporting regulation.  These new regulations will forever impact the AECO industry. This conference will provide visibility to those issues and help you connect with others who are working to understand the regulations and what the future holds. Real Estate Valuations have been greatly impacted by regulations within the UK and EU and are expected to soon impact Canadian real estate as well.

We will bring together Industry Consultants, General Contractors, Sub Trades, Insurers, Banks, Asset Managers, Developer, Owner/Operators, Tech Companies and Suppliers who can help you on your path to Net Zero and who can assist as you get accustomed to the New ESG reporting regulations and Net Zero Design Guidelines.

We will host International Case Studies, Executive roundtables, and presentations that cover:

  • What is ESG reporting? Why is it so important? and what does it mean for the AECO industry?
  • How to understand and implement true Net Zero and ESG goals for AECO companies.
  • What technologies are currently available for AECO companies to help deliver on Net Zero goals.
  • How digital transformation can lead to decarbonizing the built environment.
  • The importance of data relating to Scope 1, Scope 2, and Scope 3 emissions on Construction projects.
