How Local Authorities can meet net-zero carbon targets by 2030

14th September 2021, 1pm BST

The year 2030 is less than 9 years away. For many local authorities throughout the UK who have declared a climate emergency it is the year they have pledged to achieve Net Zero Carbon by. This is a significant challenge.

IES and Perth & Kinross Council will host a joint webinar presenting how IES’ technology is giving local authorities control of their buildings carbon emissions from Design through to Operation.

We will also discuss the imminent release of the Zero Carbon Public Buildings Modelling Guide, a significant process for any designer working on a new Public Building in Scotland. Perth & Kinross Council will highlight their journey in addressing the net-zero carbon targets of their estate, the lessons learnt and plans for the future.
