Understand how engineers can and are shaping the future of climate change.

COP 21 will bring the eyes of the world on the increasing threat of climate change. We will look at the progress made by the Institution as engineers work towards the climate goals of 2050.

This online conference is split over two days to cater for members around the world. Day one will begin at 9am BST, with day two beginning at 3pm BST.

A full programme will be available to view shortly.

The conference will focus on three key areas:


Influencing the brief

  • Our clients’ changing landscape
  • Global carbon legislation and their driving factors
  • Insurance considerations in a changing profession
 

Carbon

  • Setting targets for embodied and whole life carbon
  • Overcoming the challenges of carbon processes in design
  • Material production emissions 101 of steel, concrete and timber
  • Monitoring carbon on site and the role of good offsetting
 

The next big steps

  • The engineer’s role in normalising the circular economy
  • The holistic value of sustainable design beyond finance
  • Where we will be in 5, 15, 30 years’ time


Reasons to attend

  • Gain an understanding of the increasingly ambitious environment of legislation on zero carbon initiatives
  • Discover new ideas to implement into your projects to reduce the amount of carbon
