In the lead up to COP26 a series of virtual events will be hosted by the Edinburgh Chamber and the City of Edinburgh Council to position the capital as a leading sustainable city with green innovation across a number of sectors. The events will focus on four areas which are particular strengths of the city: Finance, Tourism, Built Environment and Food and Drink. Each event will bring together a panel of speakers, all leaders in their respective fields, to discuss progress in their sector towards achieving net-zero, showcase innovative projects and to debate the opportunities and challenges that lie ahead.
Co-Founder Rab Bennetts will be in the panel discussion Green Construction and the Built Environment: Developing a Net Zero City taking place virtually on Thursday 14th of October from 09:30-11:00.
Edinburgh has long been renowned as one of the finest cities in the world when it comes to its built environment and as a centre of excellence for financial services. Launching a new City Plan this year, Edinburgh is continuing its significant programme of city growth and regeneration with ambitions focussed on becoming net carbon zero by 2030 and eradicating poverty.
At this session, the panel will showcase and discuss exemplar sustainable developments in the city whilst exploring the opportunities and challenges that lie ahead for the sector.
