More about the event

Buildings and homes as major consumers of raw materials

Making homes and offices more sustainable is a huge challenge, yet very important as the built environment is one of the largest consumers of raw materials. In addition to the significant amount of fossil fuels, buildings also consume many other materials. In the quest for a zero-carbon economy, a lot can therefore be achieved in the built environment.

Extensive opportunities for the future

According to UK regulations, a building must have an EPC rating of at least E to be let and an EPC label A in 2030. Furthermore, 25 million homes and buildings offer an enormous opportunity to reduce CO2 emissions and to become energy neutral. Making real estate more energy-efficient will result in an annual cost saving of GBP 4.5 billion for owners and tenants.

Making real estate sustainable on a large scale

By combining their experience from over 15 years of screening buildings with big data, CFP Green Buildings has developed a digital tool: the CSR Manager. Clients of banks, utilities, technical contractors, public authorities with more than 300,000 buildings and homes are using this digital app, becoming the highest scale-up, client-empowered sustainability project.
