The built environment is responsible for around 40% of global carbon emissions, and those of us in the industry have a huge responsibility to help solve the problem. We must play our part.

For World Green Building Week (WGBW) 2021, Cundall’s sustainability leaders were joined by global industry leaders for a panel discussion that focused on our approach to climate change, the challenges we face and how we can push the boundaries of the built environment together in the lead up to COP26 and beyond.

As a region we face unique challenges in our climate challenge, yet it is clear that together we can start to build resilience and push the boundaries of the built environment together.
